Mendoza clone fruit, hand-picked, whole bunch pressed to barrel, wild fermentation with no malo-lactic nor any lees stirring. Winemaker Ben Glover says he prefers his toast with no butter. "Marlborough Chardonnay, flint, funk and line; a coiled spring with richness and freaky talent. Our first Chardonnay out of the stable wanting to strut, unbridled pleasure". We think this is a damn good Chardonnay. 
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Established in 1985, the Glover Family Vineyards have inspired the family passion for wine. This single vineyard wine express the ethereal, aromatic and structural flair of the Dillions Point Sub-Region. Spice, lime grapefruit pith, subtle funk. On the palate, crunchy acidity, savoury spice and tension."
90/100 Jamie Goode, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"15% new oak, puncheons, hand-picked. Juicy, lively and focused with a nice spiciness and some grapefruit and white peach. Very fresh with nice supporting spiciness from the well integrated oak. Lovely and very drinkable, with some brininess on the finish."
