95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"From their Gimblett Gravels vineyard, this is an outstanding chardonnay offering both power and grace. The bouquet is instantly appealing with ripe stone fruit, mango, brioche and cedar characters, which lead to a concentrated and gratifying palate that is seamless and symphonic. Wonderful layers of fruit richness, texture and spicy oak, all in harmony and balance. A delectable and engaging chardonnay. At its best: now to 2020."
5 Stars & 19.0/20 Raymond Chan, December 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"​Full, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, lighter edged. This has a very full, rich and harmoniously concentrated nose with deep and opulent aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits, citrus fruits and tropical fruit notes melded with decadent layers of creamy barrel-ferment and buttery MLF notes, and complexing nutty, smoky and toasty oak. Medium-bodied, the palate is rich and opulent, with mouthfilling flavours of yellow stonefruits, citrus fruits and tropical fruits integrated with creamy, nutty oak and butter MLF elements. The oak is bold with spices, nuts and toast. The fruit is underlined by very fine phenolic textures and the richness balanced by lacy acidity lending tension and drive. The flavours carry to a very long and sustained finish with an array of detailed fruit and oak nuances. This is a rich, opulent Chardonnay with mouthfilling flavours of ripe stonefruit, citrus and tropical fruit along with layers of creamy oak, buttery MLF and spicy, toasty oak on a fine, fresh line. Match with grilled and roasted pork over the next 4-5 years. Mendoza clone fruit from the ‘Settlement 1’ vineyard, indigenous yeast fermented in 100% new French oak puncheons to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in barrel with 4 months batonnage. 435 dozen made."
5 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, April 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"​Chardonnay lovers have I got a bottle of ‘batta bing, batta bing’ for you!  Crafted by the seriously talented team at Pask, (where it’s compulsory to adore chardonnay) here’s a grapefruit and peach-packed wine stitched together with butterscotch, custard crème, tweaks of cinnamon and a long, juicy finish.  As soon as you sip, your palate will become awash with tropical characters and hints of popcorn on the finish."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"The winery's top Chardonnay is estate-grown in the Gimblett Gravels, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for 11 months in French oak puncheons (100 per cent new in 2014). The 2014 vintage is in the traditional regional style, with a slightly oaky bouquet, substantial body and generous, ripe, peachy, slightly toasty flavours."
