Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Lifted aromas of grapefruit, toasted almond, and white nectarine are complemented by smoky, savoury notes and hints of spice. These aromas follow on to complex, weighty, fleshy palate with real depth of flavour including grapefruit, fresh fig and white stone-fruit as well as savoury mineral notes. Well integrated toasty oak and a lingering, spicy persistence complete this wine.

2016 was an exceptional vintage in Marlborough, characterised by a warmer than average summer, and has resulted in very balanced wines with lovely purity and ripe acidity. This 2016 Chardonnay is drinking well now but we are consciously making a style that will benefit from some bottle age, so it will also develop with careful cellaring for 5-7 years."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"This is all Mendoza clone vines grown on their estate vineyard; complex bouquet shows nectarine, oatmeal, hazelnut and nougat characters, followed by a concentrated and beautifully rounded palate that is attractively fruited and finely textured. Complex and engaging, and delightful and elegant at the same time, the wine offers excellent fruit purity combined with delicately infused oak undertones and savoury nuances. At its best: 2018 to 2024. Certified organic."
93/100 Jamie Goode, December 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"1979 plantings, Mendoza clone. Highly aromatic with toast and nuts, as well as some bready notes. Nice texture to the boldly flavoured palate. Moved to large format because barriques were drying out the wines. 25% new wood, 600 litres. Thick staves. Lovely integration here with some fruit sweetness, but also a lovely smooth mouthfeel. Rich but very balanced, with fresh citrus on the finish."
