4.5 stars & 91 points - Sam kim, Wine orbit 
"Elegantly composed and expressed with apricot, rockmelon, grapefruit and roasted cashew characters, its succulent and smooth in the mouth delivering rounded mouthfeel and bright
acidity. Harmonious and supple, finishing lingering and flavoursome. At its best now to 2025."
Hop Kiln have outdone themselves here. This oak-aged chardonnay has been lovingly crafted from fruit sourced from some of the best vineyards in Nelson. Hop Kiln have produced a forward Chardonnay with beautifully balanced oak integration showing overtures of buttery vanilla and ripe grapefruit. 
Stunning Chardonnay - and at this price we reckon it's a steal!
