Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"​The Judge & Jury chardonnay is grown on steep slope overlooking the Tiger vineyard in Lowburn. Chardonnay grown on this site produces the same aromatically spicy/floral profiles that we find in the Pinot Noir grown here, as well as similar persistence and very long lived flavours. The palate length shows rich mineral acid and saline notes that combine beautifully with the citrus and white stonefruit flavours.

We are keeping the crop load very low (3Tns/Ha), and the wine is mostly fermented in tank while a small portion is made in barrel. The result is a wine that is tight, refreshingly pure and mineral driven, showcasing cool climate fruit where the oak is very much in the background. Only 340 cases made. Best from 2018 on.

In the glass there is a wonderful perfume of white flowers, white peach and bouquet garni, while the spice and toasty barrel components lounge comfortably in the background giving extra warmth and depth. Creamy peach and lemon sorbet flavours on the nicely weighted palate; and the mineral laced acid gently pushes the fruit along the generous and lengthy finish."


4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 vintage was designed to showcase its delicious, vibrant fruit characters – 70 per cent of the blend was handled in tanks, but 30 per cent was matured in old and new oak barrels. Pale lemon/green, with a creamy, slightly citrusy and biscuity bouquet, it is mouthfilling and buoyantly fruity, with fresh, rich, grapefruit-like flavours to the fore, very generous, smooth and harmonious. It's already highly enjoyable."
