Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"​Perhaps more so than any other variety in Hawke’s Bay, Chardonnay can make great wines with very little intervention from the Winemaker. Hand harvested fruit from our best Chardonnay vineyards is whole bunch pressed and the juice run directly to barrel or cuve (French oak tanks) with no prior clarification steps, or any additions. Once in barrel, the juice is simply left to undergo a natural, wild fermentation process and a subsequent maturation. The result is a finely structured, elegant Chardonnay, with subtle oak influence and great drinkability.

An elegant yet multidimensional Chardonnay, with a core of ripe stonefruit and fragrant citrus, overlaid with aromas of roasted nuts, subtle creaminess and a hint of smoky struck flint. The palate is powerful yet fresh and restrained with fine texture, great length and balanced fresh acidity."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, January 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Light yellow gold. Gunsmoke, flint and hazelnut biscuits fill the bouquet and its warm, rich and nutty in the palate with funky yeast notes, hints of grapefruit and lingering notes of juicy melon, stone fruit and creamy oak. Fabulous value for the price."
