Gold Medal – New Zealand Wine of the Year Awards 2018

Sue Courtney,, March 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Light yellow gold in the glass with a full on tantalising leesy bouquet filled with toasty, biscuity, nutty, lemony, mealy notes and powerful in the seamless palate yet not overpowering. It’s decadently toasty with peaches and cream, flint and gunsmoke notes and a beautifully balanced dry savoury oak finish that's long and persistent with a touch of cedary salinity. Clone 15 grapes from the Corner 50 area adjacent to the famed Keltern Vineyard."

90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, March 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Very inviting bouquet with a rich and nutty attack then roasted yellow stone fruits aromas, some new wood scents of vanilla and mild toasty oak. On the palate – full-bodied and dry with flavours of burnt butter, toasted cashew and stone fruit, some citrus flavours with grapefruit and a touch of lemon. Fine oak tannins and medium+ acidity. Balanced with good length and complexity. Drink now and through 2021."

Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, March 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"The 2015 Empirical Chardonnay from Hawke’s Bay is a barrel-fermented wine with plenty of yeast autolysis character and some fashionable struck flint reductive influence. I like the wine’s texture and complexity and will probably like it even more with a little extra bottle age."
