5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2014 Vintage)
"A delectable chardonnay offering terrific fruit power together with layers of rich texture and delicious flavours. Notes of mango, ripe citrus, vanilla and butterscotch lead to a sumptuous palate that is plush and rounded. The wine is full, flowing and immediately appealing. A gorgeous wine for those who love richer style chardonnays. At its best: now to 2019."
5 Stars & 18.5-/20 Raymond Chan, November 2015 (2014 Vintage)
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with light green hues, pale edged. This is elegantly concentrated with a subtle array of citrus fruit, stonefruit, mealy and nutty aromas, unfolding layers of complexing gunflint and minerally reduction. This is finely presented and builds in depth with aeration. Medium-bodied and finely concentrated, this palate has a deep core of white stonefruits melded with a mealy and nutty fruit and oak amalgam, unfolding waves of flinty, minerally less complexities. The mouthfeel is refined in its density and concentration with very fine-grained phenolic textures, and enlivened by ripe, soft acidity. The acidity lends energy and tension and carries the wine to a thirst-quenching, elegantly concentrated, long and sustained finish with complex mineral nutty and stonefruited notes. This is a concentrated, finely presented Chardonnay with complex stonefruit and flinty, mineral flavours and a balanced, fresh mouthfeel. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4+ years. Clone 95 and Mendoza fruit from the Waimauku vineyard, hand-picked and fully barrel-fermented to 13.2% alc., the wine aged in 22% new French oak, undergoing batonnage and partial MLF."
