Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"There is an immediate eye appeal which is shining and the floral aromas of orange and white blossom together with honeyed notes and nutty acorns which lead into a clean fresh yet soft complexity. It smells like yellow and tastes like the words from AA Milne.

With time in the glass the taste progresses towards a long and rounded mouth texture clipped with cleansing acidity and framed by silken tannins. It is soft and appealing and the mouth flavours have not been altered with any additional fining from animal products so it is an honest expression from our place to your face. Enjoy. Unfined."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"It is wonderfully fruited and beautifully expressed on the nose showing yellow stone fruit, rockmelon, nougat, vanilla and hazelnut aromas with a hint of brioche complexity. The palate is ripe and fleshy, and delivers delectable fruit flavours with subtle oak nuances, wonderfully framed by refreshing acidity. The wine is harmonious and silky, and finishes long and creamy. At its best: now to 2020."


5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, November 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Brilliant, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, pale edged. The nose is full with a complex amalgam of yellow stonefruits melded with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak, mealy complexities and flinty detail, unveiling suggestions of toast. The aromatics are well-concentrated with good depth. Medium-bodied, the palate has gently building flavours of yellow stonefruits, creamy and nutty oak, and mealy and flinty complexities. Hints of lemon curd MLF add to the interest. The palate has a good heart with depth and soft concentration, and a subtly-textured line with balanced acidity. The flavours unfold the fill the palate, and the wine carries positively to a soft, full, lingering finish. This is a softly building, concentrated and mouthfilling Chardonnay with a complex palate of stonefruits, creamy and nutty oak with mealy and flinty interest. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 4-5 years. Mendoza clone fruit, hand-picked and indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 17% French oak., undergoing partial MLF. Certified BioGro organic and Demeter biodynamic."


92/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2016 Vintage)
"Textured bouquet with a creamy, organic and raw energy. Aromas include peaches and cream, vanilla and honeysuckle, cashew and yoghurt, spices from wood. On the palate – fresh, vibrant and fruity with flavours that reflect the nose; fresh and ripe acidity, a light creamy texture and harmonious finish with moderate and developing complexity. drink now and through 2024."
