98/100 Decanter 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"Rich, quite oaky Chardonnay with lemon curd, mineral, nut and brioche flavours. Elegant and focused with a lengthy finish. An outstanding glass with considerable personality."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"From Giesen, this wine is grown in the famous Clayvin Vineyard, in the Brancott Valley, and fermented and matured in 1000-litre German oak casks (fuders), which 'develop greater complexity and refinement, but the oak doesn't dominate'. The tight, youthful, age-worthy 2014 vintage is bright, light lemon/green, with a fragrant, complex, slightly smoky bouquet. Mouthfilling, it is elegant, with concentrated grapefruit and peach flavours, integrated oak, fine acidity, and a powerful, lasting finish."
5 Stars & 96/100 Gourmet Traveller, March 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"Made from grapes grown on a mature, hillside vineyard with a proven record of excellence. Big, rich chardonnay with plenty of power. Mineral/oyster shell, grapefruit, white peach, toasted nut and brioche with floral hints. Complex with a lengthy finish."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2014 Vintage)
"This is a big, gold, bold smelling wine with caramel-coated yeasty funk filling the bouquet and while it seems acid driven in the palate with is abundant grapefruit and citrus flavours the deep, rich sweetly smoked meaty savoury undercurrent makes it mouthfilling and complex. Hints of stonefruit emerge and while there is a flinty, earthy, dry gravelly note to the lingering finish the overall impression is creamy and long."
