Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The limestone laced soils of our upper terrace sing their song through fruit intensity & tension. These Jurassic limestones are of a similar period to those prime parcels of Chablis — the Kimmerigian & Portlandian, and contain a myriad of fossilised diatomic creatures. Biological, chemical & physical parameters of these soils provide a happy balance of nutrition, water holding capacity & drainage. This fruit from 2016 came from a very comfortable growing season. It was lovely."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"If you are looking for an unoaked, Chablis-style Chardonnay, this North Canterbury beauty is hard to beat. The 2016 vintage is not at all brash, but still full of personality. Pale, with mouthfilling body, it is lemon-scented, very fresh and vibrant, with pure, delicate, citrusy, peachy flavours, lively acidity, a minerally streak, and excellent vigour and length. Fine value."
4 Stars & 17.5/20 Raymond Chan, June 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​Bright, light straw-yellow colour with pale green hues. The nose is very fresh, elegant and tightly bound with aromas of white stonefruits, white florals, some mineral notes and nutty suggestions, along with hints of saline. This is pure and refreshing. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is crisp and zesty with tight and finely concentrated white stonefruit flavours along with white florals, minerals and saline nuances. The mouthfeel is slippery and seamless with crisp acidity providing energy and finesse. The wine follows a light-textured phenolic line leading to a subtly flavoured, thirst-quenching, minerally finish. This is a fresh, taut, un-oaked Chardonnay with white stonefruit, mineral and stonefruit flavours on a slippery, crisp, fine-textured palate. Match with shellfish and seafood over the next 3-4 years. UCD Champagne and Mendoza clone fruit from ‘Block 4’ Glasnevin Gravels, vines 20-25 y.o., fermented in tank to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months on lees with batonnage and no MLF, with no oak contact."
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​Delicate and refined, the wine shows aromas of white stone fruit, lemon peel, oatmeal and wet limestone on the nose, leading to a finely textured palate that is taut and linear. The wine offers pristine fruit characters with flinty undertones, beautifully structured by bright acidity, finishing long and crisp. At its best: now to 2021."
