Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Fragrant aromas of ripe citrus, pineapple and melon, lifted florals and honeysuckle, with butterscotch, toasted marshmallow and toffee undertones.  A complex and concentrated wine with sweet peach, nectarine, grapefruit and pineapple. Mouth-filling and creamy textured with a good mineral and ripe acid vein. Nice ripe phenolics lead to a lovely long and mouth-watering finish."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"This is wonderfully fruited and generously expressed on the nose showing golden peach, mango, nougat and vanilla characters with a subtle hazelnut note. The palate delivers excellent concentration and weight, wonderfully complemented by succulent fruit intensity and creamy mouthfeel, finishing superbly long and opulent. At its best: now to 2021."

4 Stars & 18.0-/20 Raymond Chan, March 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour with slight golden hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly concentrated with moderately deep aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, and citrus fruit entwined with a fine line of spicy, nutty oak melded with notes of lemon-curd MLF and suggestions of creamy barrel-ferment. Fullish bodied, the palate has a rich core of stonefruits and citrus fruit alongside lemon-curd MLF, along with a little creamy, nutty oak. The palate is bright and lively, and enhanced by fresh acidity. The wine flows along a very fine featured and textured line, leading to a long, lingering finish. This is a full, rich, citrus and stonefruited Chardonnay with lemon-curd MLF and creamy, nutty oak on a brisk, refreshing palate. Match with grilled and roasted seafood and poultry dishes over the next 4 years. Hand-picked fruit, WBP and fully barrel-fermented to 14.3% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 42% new French oak barriques with batonnage and full MLF conversion."
