This Chardonnay is a counterpoint ito the prevalent Smokey/gunflinty styles offering smooth, creamy, yellow and golden flavours. We like it a lot!
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Rich aromas of ripe stone fruit, citrus and toasted almond. The palate is textured and rich, with powerful fruit concentration overlying well integrated oak and finely balanced acidity."
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"​This is stunningly delicious. Fragrant aromas of yellow stone fruit, mango, nougat, vanilla and cedar lead to a powerfully expressed palate that is succulent and creamy with layers of attractive flavours. The wine offers instant appeal, while offering excellent poise and structure, and finishes superbly long and velvety. An opulent chardonnay with loads of delectable flavours. At its best: now to 2020."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The elegant 2016 vintage was fermented and matured in French oak barriques (30 per cent new), and given a full, softening malolactic fermentation. Bright, light yellow/green, it is mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with vibrant, grapefruit-like flavours, slightly buttery notes, well-integrated oak, and excellent harmony and richness. Drink now or cellar."
Rated Excellent to Outstanding, Otago Daily Times, May 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Juicy fruit gum at first, moving to tropical fruits with a backdrop of apple. The palate shows rich, ripe fruit in the tropical spectrum adding notes of spiced apple, toffee apple and warm bread with a delicious mealy character. For its power, it remains light on its feet with fresh acidity framing the long finish. Time brings added complexity."
