5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, November 2015 (2014 Vintage)
"Brilliant, full and even lemon-yellow colour with green hues. This has an elegantly proportioned, concentrated nose of ripe citrus fruits and whitstonefruits entwined with subtle mealy, nutty and spicy oak notes and complexing flinty lees. Some creamy barrel-ferment and lemon-curd MLF aromas add to the richness and depth. Medium-bodied, the palate features tightly bound and concentrated flavours of stonefruits melded with mealy and nutty layers, unfolding toasty oak and flinty complexities. The wine follows a rich, creamy-textured core and fine line, the mouthfeel lively and refreshing from lacy, cutting acidity which adds to the linear drive. The flavours lead to a very long, lingering, mealy, flinty and citrussy fruited finish. This is an elegantly concentrated citrussy and mealy Chardonnay with flinty complexities and creamy richness, and fine acid cut. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4+ years. Clones 15, 95, 2/23 and Mendoza from the Waimea Plains, fermented in barriques and puncheons to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in new and seasoned French oak, undergoing batonnage and partial MLF."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2015 (2014 Vintage)
"A beautifully harmonious and attractive chardonnay, the fragrant bouquet shows white stone fruit, citrus, vanilla and nutty characters, leading to a succulent palate that offers excellent fruit weight and creamy texture. Lovely style and poise. At its best: now to 2019."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"Enjoyable young, the 2014 vintage was fermented in French oak barriques and puncheons (partly new). Mouthfilling, it is creamy-textured, with fresh acidity, strong, ripe, peachy flavours, gently seasoned with biscuity oak, and good harmony."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, May 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"​The bouquet is reminiscent of vanilla custard and spiced apricot and the mellow taste backs up the golden colour that hints of a little age. With flavours like juicy nectarine, zingy citrus, an exotic pepper like papaya seeds and a touch of cedar, it’s soft, rounded and ready to go."
