Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The Small Parcels “Wild Grace” Chardonnay is named for the rugged beauty of the landscape surrounding our Hawke’s Bay vineyards, as well as the complexity and elegance of this wild-fermented Chardonnay.

Wild Grace is composed from our estate Airstrip Vineyard surrounding our Hawke's Bay winery. Located on the red metal soils right at the tip of the esteemed Bridge Pa Triangle subregion, mature clone 95, 96, and 15 vines produce moderate yields of concentrated fruit with predominantly citrus fruit flavours.

Stonefruit and citrus aromas are enhanced by baking spice and brioche from regular battonage in fine French oak barriques. Concentrated, taut and minerally with a silken texture."


4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Already delicious, the age-worthy 2016 vintage was fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak barriques (36 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, it is fragrant and mouthfilling, with rich, ripe stone-fruit flavours, very good complexity and a long, harmonious finish. Best drinking 2019+. Fine value."


Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, October 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Gorgeous golden yellow with an inviting chardonnay aroma full of barrel ferment and mealy yeasty connotations. Savoury more than fruity to the taste though full of rounded, mouth-coating stonefruit sweetness and butter caramel corn coating the finish. Drinking beautifully."


Paul Tudor MW, noted.co.nz, May 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Savoury, smoky aromatics, the fruit seems rich and spicy. Evident use of oak on the palate, which is toasty and creamy. A moderately complex, rich style of chardonnay, not heavy, but dyed-in-the-wool chardonnay drinkers will enjoy this."
