Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Pale lemon colour. Aromatics of brioche, roasted cashew and corn husk. Underpinned by lime zest, fennel fronds, & pink grapefruit. Palate is expansive & rich, crisp citrus zing and generous finish with signature fine-grained oak.

2019 was a small year for Chardonnay, due to limited flowering which required careful shoot selection and meticulous canopy management, allowing the best fruit to ripen over a settled autumn. Organically managed, the combination of undervine cultivation and fewer irrigation cycles has driven the Chardonnay roots deep into the soil. Our Chardonnay is a blend of two main vineyard blocks. One block is limestone dominant, while the other is clay. The two clones, Mendoza & Clone 95, flourish differently in both blocks. Mendoza is the cornerstone of our Chardonnay. The clone is known for its small, open grape bunches, intense fruit-driven flavours and chalky minerality.

We hand-picked our Chardonnay blocks and processed without the use of additives. We pressed our Limestone block as whole bunches and pressed our Clay block after foot crushing. Each block was fermented separately in French oak barriques without intervention, allowing the wild yeasts and bacteria to perform primary and malo-lactic fermentation through to completion. Barrel aged for 10 months before estate bottled without fining."


Rated Outstanding & 96/100 Cameron Douglas MS, February 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Fantastic bouquet with aromas of a complex and detailed expression. Aromas and flavours of pure white and yellow fleshed stone fruits, citrus, apple, lees and a chalky limestone minerality. On the palate the wine has a detailed texture from acidity and fruit spice, careful use of barrel and plenty of lees autolysis. Fresh cashew nut and oyster shell, apple blossoms and white peach flavours. Lengthy finish leaves me wanting the whole bottle to my self. Drink now and through 2025+."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"A wonderfully styled and expressed chardonnay, showing grilled stone fruit, fig, lemon peel and vanilla characters with nuances of cashew and brioche. It's concentrated and richly textured on the palate delivering expansive mouthfeel and creamy texture, leading to an impressively long refined finish. At its best: now to 2027."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 vintage of this organically certified wine was hand-picked, barrel-fermented and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new). A powerful, pale gold wine, it is fragrant, weighty and fleshy, with rich, ripe stonefruit flavours, slightly toasty notes, a vague hint of honey, and strong drink-young appeal. Best drinking 2022+."


5 Stars & 19-/20 (95) Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, February 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Bright, light yellow with some depth and a gold hue, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is gently full with power, apricot aroma, lemon tart melded with nutty and toasty oak elements, unfolding a flinty mineral edge. Medium-full bodied, well-rounded aromas of apricot and peach, entwined with lemon tart, nougat, toasty oak; flinty edge linger on the finish with spices. The wine shows multi-layers of complexity; pristine fruit and the barrel elements are in a happy marriage, elevating both components in harmony. The creamy mouthfeel flows along a delicate, chalky thread, balanced on a flattering acid precision. This is an opulent style Chardonnay with multi-layers of interest, chalky minerals and pristine fruit concentration. Match with scampi and crayfish macaroni & cheese over the next 6+ years. Handpicked, wild fermented to 13.5% alc, full MLF, aged in French oak for 10 months, 20% new barriques. BioGro organic certified. Vegan friendly."

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
