Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"The criteria for EBM is exceptional weight, density and length of flavour. The wine has extended time on lees in barrel, this adds nuance and interest to the abundant primary fruit and produces a wine of great texture and integration.

The EBM has almond, peach, nectarine and mineral notes combining with the texture and mealy notes from the extended lees contact. The Mendoza clone contributes great length of flavour and a fine, natural acidity to balance the richness and gives a wine of length and finesse. This wine will improve and become more interesting – certainly for the next few years."

5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, April 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Mendoza and clone 6 chardonnay from a premium vineyard site with extended barrel maturation (EBM) of 18 months. The wine is richer, weightier, oakier and more complex than the regular label with bran biscuit, brioche and toasty characters adding complexity to stone fruit and citrus fruit flavours. Quite a mouthful. Drink 2017 to 2022."

4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"From a region producing increasingly fine, often underrated Chardonnays, this is one of the best. EBM means 'extended barrel maturation'.  Certified organic, the 2015 vintage is still very youthful. Full-bodied, it is finely poised, with fresh acidity woven through its peachy, citrusy, slightly biscuity and toasty flavours, which show good complexity. Best drinking 2019+."
