91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"A delectable barrel-fermented chardonnay, it is instantly appealing on the nose showing ripe stone fruit, orange peel, cedar and vanilla characters with subtle creamy notes. The palate is succulent and flavoursome, and delivers excellent fruit purity and intensity, wonderfully supported by stylish oak infusion and refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2019."
4 Stars & 18.0/20, Raymond Chan, April 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​Bright, even, yellow colour with light golden hues, paler edged. The nose is well-concentrated and elegantly proportioned with fine, fragrant aromas of citrus and yellow stonefruits melded harmoniously with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty, toast oak complexities. This has freshness and vitality and mouthwatering, steely and mineral nuances underlining the fruit and oak. Medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated heart of white and yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit layered with subtle creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak flavours. Some minerally lees add detail and interest. The mouthfeel is fresh and flows along a fine, taut line with lacy acidity enlivening the palate, providing energy and tension. The wine carries to an elegant finish of nuts and toast. This is a crisp, refreshing Chardonnay with stonefruit and citrussy fruit interwoven with nutty and toasty oak. Serve with grilled seafood and poultry over the next 4-5 years. Old vine Mendoza fruit predominantly from Rapaura and Omaka, fully indigenous yeast barrel-fermented with high solids to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak barrels with batonnage and 15-20% MLF."
