5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, January 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"​Bright pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter edged. The nose is full and voluminous with softly packed aromas of white and yellow stonefruits harmoniously melded with flinty lees and reductive complexities. Citrus fruit and nutty oak detail unfolds with aeration and the aromatics grow in depth in the glass. Medium-bodied, the palate is crisp and refreshing with concentrated flavours of white and yellow stonefruits and flinty, minerally lees notes. The fruit flavours are enlivened by the bright acidity, lending energy and drive to the fine-textured palate line. Subtle layers of nutty oak emerge and the wine is carried to a sustained finish of stonefruits and flint. This is a fresh, lively, well-concentrated Chardonnay with stonefruit and flinty complexities. Match with seafood and poultry over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit, 6 different clones, from the ‘Johnson’ and ‘Outpost’ vineyards, fully barrel-fermented, approx. 75% by indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 20% new oak, with 100% MLF."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"A consistently attractive, top-value wine. The fragrant, classy 2014 vintage was hand-picked, barrel-fermented and oak-aged for nearly a year. Light lemon/green, it is tightly structured, with impressive depth of peachy, slightly toasty flavours, showing good complexity, and a lingering finish. Well worth cellaring, it is bargain-priced."
4 Stars Cuisine Chardonnay Tasting, September 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Over the last few vintages, Spy Valley’s Paul Bourgeois has quietly been making some of the best value chardonnays around. This release is typically flinty and complex, with a herbal, minerally edge to the flavour profile and a firm, bracing texture. The overall effect is one of poise and restraint."
