Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"A ripe and generous Chardonnay underpinned by a core of minerality. 100% old vine Mendoza clone, hand-picked, then crushed and presses into Burgundy oak barrels for wild yeast fermentation until dry, before being matured in barrel for 12 months during which time the wine underwent full malolactic fermentation. The first impression is of ripe fruit hinting at preserved lemons, white nectarines and candied grapefruit. The nose then unfolds into savoury elements of bakers’ yeast, toasted brioche and chalky minerals. The palate is full with good fruit weight, cleansing acidity and a focussed structure that sees the wine linger between sips. This 2016 gracefully walks the tight rope between generosity and elegance. Certified organic."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"A gorgeous elegant rendition; delicate aromas of white stone fruit, lemon peel, oatmeal and wet lime stone on the nose. It is finely textured and beautifully weighted, delivering excellent purity and poise, finishing long and refined. At its best: now to 2021."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, September 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, lighter on the rim. This has an elegantly proportioned, intense and penetrating nose of citrus fruit and yellow stonefruits along with a complex amalgam of creamy barrel-ferment, mealy notes and nutty oak. The flavours are harmonious and integrated with layers of complexity forming a well-packed heart, with balanced acidity. The flavours carry with plenty of drive and power along a very fine-textured line carrying to lingering, concentrated finish. This is a rich and concentrated, mouthfilling, complex Chardonnay with harmonious citrus and stonefruit flavours along with creamy and nutty oak. Match with roast pork over the next 4+ years. Fruit from the confluence of the Brancott and Omaka Valley, indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine 14-16 months in <10% new French oak with 100% MLF. Certified BriGro organic."
