19/20 Five Stars - Raymond Chan
"Bright, even, light straw-yellow throughout with a tinge of gold. The nose is soft, gentle notes of lemon sherbet, grapefruit mingling fresh herbs; poise with underlying power of dusty phenolic and subtle flintiness. Dry on the palate, bringing out a crisp mouthfeel and crunchy wet stone minerality. Creaminess fills the palate broaden its shape; citrus nuances of lemon, grapefruit, mandarin peels levitating with fresh herbs and chalky phenolics; subtle notes of pastry and delicate spices elevated the persistence finish. This is an elegant, medium-bodied Chardonnay with nuances of citrus fruit, freshness and wet stone minerality; poise with creaminess, the subtleness of pastry, delicate spices and flintiness contribute to its complexity. Although 2018 was a hot vintage, the fruit has been picked early to retain its freshness to create this elegant Chardonnay. Match with shellfish over the next 5+ years. Mendoza & Clone 15, biodynamically farmed, BioGro organic certified. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, wild-fermented in French barriques to 13.9% alc. Further aged in oak for 10 months, 36% new, 50% MLF."

93/100 Points - Bob Campbell
“Stylish Central Otago chardonnay, with impressive purity and a weighty, silken-textured palate…An elegant and accessible wine that should develop with bottle-age.”

This is stunning cool climate, Chardonnay. Complex and inviting on the nose showing ripe peach, rockmelon, lemon peel, nougat and cedar characters with nuances of flint and spice. The palate is equally gratifying with excellent concentration and expansive mouthfeel, leading to an extremely long.

Elegant and just divine.
