Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The fruit was lightly whole bunch pressed and the juice fermented in American oak barrels, fifty per cent of which were new, using selected yeast strains. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation, followed by ten months aging on yeast lees with regular stirring. Only the very best barrels were selected for the Omaka Reserve Chardonnay. Aromas of fragrant peach, popcorn and toasted hazelnut with smoky nuances. The palate is round and silky with nectarine, ripe grapefruit and biscuit notes."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"This is typically a fat, creamy wine, weighty and rich, made in a bold, upfront style. Grown in the Southern Valleys – mostly in the company's vineyard in the Omaka Valley – it is fermented and lees-aged for 10 months in American oak casks (50 per cent new in 2016), and given a full, softening malolactic fermentation. Bright, light lemon/green, the youthful 2016 vintage is mouthfilling, sweet-fruited and savoury, with good complexity and a creamy-textured, very harmonious finish. Best drinking mid-2018+."
