4 STARS & 18/20 POINTS - Raymond Chan, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, Apr 2017
“Bright, even, yellow colour with light golden hues, paler edged. The nose is well-concentrated and elegantly proportioned with fine, fragrant aromas of citrus and yellow stonefruits melded harmoniously with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty, toast oak complexities. This has freshness and vitality and mouthwatering, steely and mineral nuances underlining the fruit and oak. Medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated heart of white and yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit layered with subtle creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak flavours. Some minerally lees add detail and interest. The mouthfeel is fresh and flows along a fine, taut line with lacy acidity enlivening the palate, providing energy and tension. The wine carries to an elegant finish of nuts and toast. This is a crisp, refreshing Chardonnay with stonefruit and citrussy fruit interwoven with nutty and toasty oak.”

4 STARS – WineNZ Magazine, Winter 2017
“Simon: Full colour, quite aromatic, vanilla, floral, ripe, quite solid mid-palate. Well balanced though soft but with a good finish. Dave: Straw, ripe fruit fills the front palate. Chunky oak gives it a full-throttle style. Lauren: Restrained but with nice intensity and balance on the palate. Good texture and weight.”
