Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Showing lovely complexity with citrus and stonefruit characters paired with toasty brioche, sweet vanilla and charry oak notes. On the palate this chardonnay is smooth and round with lovely minerality and focused acidity that provides length and vitality. This wine has weight and concentration while retaining its balance and elegance.

These Mendoza Chardonnay grapes were hand-harvested and whole bunch pressed, settled briefly before being racked to French oak barriques (25% new). The juice was allowed to ferment 'wild' over several months and encouraged to undergo full malolactic fermentation, the wine were was when racked from the barrels and blended prior to being bottled here at the winery."
Reviews for the 2015 vintage below...
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"A splendid chardonnay showing fruit richness and stylish oak infusion; the opulently expressed bouquet shows grilled peach, fig, vanilla and cedar characters with subtle brioche complexity. The palate is impressively weighted and rounded, and delivers succulent fruit flavours and creamy texture, finishing long and delicious. At its best: now to 2020."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"Estate-grown and hand-harvested in the Chaytors Road Vineyard, in the Wairau Valley, the 2015 vintage (was fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barriques (25 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, it has a fragrant, slightly toasty bouquet. Fresh, full-bodied and dry, it is concentrated and complex, with good acid spine and strong, vibrant, citrusy, peachy flavours, gently seasoned with oak. A finely balanced wine, it's a drink-now or cellaring proposition. Good value."
