Gold Medal - New Zealand International Wine Show 2016
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"This is a beautifully composed chardonnay showing refinement and seductive complexity. Fragrant aromas of white nectarine, lemon peel, oatmeal and vanilla lead to a concentrated palate that is focused and brilliantly structured by bright acidity. The wine shows elegance and grace, and promises to evolve magnificently. At its best: now to 2021."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, June 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale edged. The nose is softly full and gently packed with subtle layers of stonefruits and citrus fruits along with mealy detail and subtle flinty complexities, unfolding nutty oak and nuances of lemon-curd MLF and smoke. Medium-bodied, the palate has a rich, concentrated core of complex white and yellow stionefruits, layered with mealy notes, subtle creamy barrel-ferment and nutty lees and oak detail. The flavours unfold to reveal layers of smoky and nutty oak with a suggestion of flint. The mouthfeel is fresh and dry, and flows along a fine-textured line with soft, lacy acidity providing tension. Notes of toast and smoke with butterscotch emerge on the elegant, lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, complex layered Chardonnay with citrus, mealy, nutty and flinty flavours with some oak toast ant buttery detail. Match with grilled and roasted seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4+ years. Mendoza and clone 95, first cropped in 2009, fully barrel-fermented to 12.4% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 20% new French oak with batonnage, then given a further 3 months on lees, the wine undergoing partial MLF."
