Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"​Award winning winemaker James Rowan has created a Waiheke Chardonnay that pays homage to the regal roamer of our Vineyard – Maximus Carter. A healthy nose with instant appeal – hints of guava & hazelnut radiate. Flavours of ripe stone fruit, citrus & spicy French oak create an elegant silky texture. A sleek body of underlying strength & back bone showcase this thoroughbred. Tall in stature & majestic… a worthy treat for the truly devoted.

Notes of spiced apple, savoury grilled lime & the scent of lightly roasted hazelnut. The palate frisks with taut salinity, flaxen texture & white pepper spiced creamed cashews. Of detailed line & sustained finish."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Magnificently complex and stylish, this gorgeous chardonnay shows ripe stone fruit, lemon peel, oatmeal and almond characters on the nose with a touch of savoury nuance. The palate is concentrated, displaying excellent depth and intensity, wonderfully complemented by creamy mouthfeel and a well-structured finish. Splendidly harmonious and seductive, offering terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2022."

4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 vintage has excellent poise and depth. Bright, light lemon/green, it is still very youthful, with mouthfilling body, strong, fresh, peachy, slightly nutty flavours, finely balanced acidity, and obvious cellaring potential; best drinking 2020+."
