Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 single vineyard, barrel fermented Chardonnay offers sophisticated soft wine with restrained flavours of grapefruit, melon and a subtle blend of nut, spicy oak and lees characters. Barrel fermented and Barrel aged in new and older French oak adds complexity and texture."
4 ½ Stars & Top 10 Cuisine NZ Chardonnay Tasting, August 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Toasty oak and a hint of terracotta interlaced with nutty fennel, grapefruit, white peach and a twist of sweet sage tingle the taste buds and leaves a sense of enjoyment. That toasty, mealy oak reappears again on the palate, interlaced with fine stonefruit notes, juicy acidity and a gentle yet powerful acid spine that helps to deliver the perfect lengthy finish."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"This is immediately appealing on the nose showing ripe stone fruit, rockmelon, nougat, vanilla and roasted hazelnut characters. The palate is concentrated and wonderfully weighted, delivering rich texture and creamy mouthfeel, backed by elegantly pitched acidity. Soothing and comforting with loads of tasty flavours. At its best: now to 2021."
