5 Stars, No.2 & Best Buy Cuisine Chardonnay Tasting, August 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Grown from the vines that are over 30 years old, this perfectly balanced wine makes a serious impression. Youthful with generous fruit flavours that are elegantly oaked and punctuated by some intriguing flinty notes. A very focused palate with genuine length.

Winemaker/owner, Ben Glover is ecstatic that his Chardonnay has taken a podium placing after the success of the 2016 Zephyr Chardonnay last year. “It is a sign that we are onto something pretty good I think…” this vineyard has produced bloody smart chardonnay over the last 30 years and I think since we started focusing on it with our first Zephyr single vineyard Chardonnay in 2014 we knew its pedigree” “The site was planted back in the late 80’s, when Chardonnay was becoming a bit unpopular … we persevered and now we are seeing some fantastic results coming off the old block”

The Zephyr Chardonnay is made from fruit entirely from the Glover Family’s own Kerseley Estate, located in the Dillon Point sub region of Marlborough. The Chardonnay was handpicked and whole bunch fruit was pressed straight to large format old French Oak, where it was allowed “go feral’, according to Ben.  He goes’ on to explain the wine style is like a “coiled spring with deft savouriness and funky talent.”


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Established in 1985, the Glover Family Vineyards have inspired the family passion for wine. This single vineyard wine express the ethereal, aromatic and structural flair of the Dillions Point Sub-Region. Spice, lime grapefruit pith, subtle funk. On the palate, crunchy acidity, savoury spice and tension."
