5 Stars & Number 1 Cuisine Chardonnay Tasting, May 2013

Winery notes (2011 Vintage)
"The 2011 vintage has produced a finely styled Chardonnay. Citrus, flint and roasted nut aromas combine into a seamless palate with an underlying minerality. Balanced and elegant, this classic Hawkes Bay Chardonnay will continue to age gracefully over time​."
93/100 Bob Campbell MW (2011 Vintage)
“Flagship wine from an accomplished Chardonnay maker. It does not disappoint. Intensely flavoured wine with strong peach/nectarine fruit flavours and an appropriate seasoning of winemaker artifact. The best 2011 Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay I’ve tasted to date. Great texture, lengthy finish and impeccable balance.”
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage)
"​The 2011, hand-picked at several sites and fermented and lees-aged for 10 months in French oak barrriques, has a highly fragrant, smoky bouquet. Tightly structured, powerful and yet elegant, it is weighty, citrusy and peachy, with mealy, nutty notes adding complexity, youthful vigour and a finely poised, lasting finish."
93/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, January 2014 (2011 Vintage)
"Matchsticky funk, stone fruit and citrus, touch of florals to the perfume too. Cool and reserved to taste, stone fruit and apple-like flavours, tight and firm. Finishes with slate-like minerality, chalky phenolics and glass shard cut of acidity. Good intensity. Some would say savoury, others dusty, but pretty funky all up and the personality shines through."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2011 Vintage)
"​Creamy, full-bodied, nougatty and mealy with distinctive grapefruit leesy characters on the nose, this is an expression of harmony as it flows across the palate with savoury, smoky, toasty oak and wild ferment characters, a little bit of flint, grilled peach and grapefruit. A wine that gently caresses and then empowers with its full mouthfeel and fruit richness that epitomises the best that Hawkes Bay can deliver."
