5 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"Rather than power, the key attributes of this wine are finesse and harmony. A celebration of rich, ripe fruit flavours, it is gently seasoned with oak (French, about 25 per cent new), producing a delicious wine with subtle winemaking input and concentrated varietal flavours. The 2014 is clearly a top vintage. It has a fragrant, citrusy bouquet, leading into a generous palate with grapefruit-like flavours, finely integrated oak, and very impressive complexity, drive and elegance."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2014 Vintage)
"Stylish and refined, and powerful and delicious at the same time. The complex bouquet shows stone fruit, lemon peel, vanilla and cedar characters with a touch of flint. It is concentrated and weighty on the palate, and offers layers of rich texture and attractive flavours. The wine is expressive, superbly balanced and immensely appealing. At its best: now to 2020."
4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, March 2015 (2014 Vintage)
"Brilliant straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, lighter on edge. The nose is very elegant and refined with delicate aromas of white stonefruits and citrus fruits. This is tightly bound with nutty and creamy barrel-ferment notes at the core, along with nuances of lemon-curd MLF. The aromatics build in penetration and depth with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate is tightly concentrated and initially unyielding, but grows in concentration and depth with stonefruit and citrus fruit detail. Layers of nuts and nuance of flint emerge with lemon-curd and barrel-ferment creaminess. The palate is fresh and lacy with fine acidity, following a refined, dry, textural lime, leading to a long, sustained finish. This is a very tightly bound and youthfully elegant Chardonnay that will develop richness and layers of interest over the next 4-5 years. Serve with seafood and poultry. Two-thirds clone 15 and one-third clone 95 fruit from the ‘Om Santi’ vineyard, fully barrel-fermented with approx. 50% by indigenous yeasts to 13.9% alc., the wine aged 9 months on lees in 26% new French oak with minimal MLF."
