92 Points - Cam Douglas
"C
lassic, familiar and refreshing bouquet of Chardonnay with aromas of smoky and toasty wood, roasted peaches and vanilla cream with a harmonious and nicely complex allure. On the palate - full-bodied, silk & cream texture with fine wood tannins, medium acidity and fruit flavours that reflect the nose. Balanced and well made, youthful, vibrant and delicious. Best drinking from today and through 2023+.

Single vineyard in Hawkes Bay, this is a rich, barrel fermented Chardonnay with the accent on complexity and fruit weight. Ripe stone fruit and citrus aromas combine with hints of toasty oak, leading to a silky and elegant finish.

Perfect with seafood or pasta made with rich, cream-based sauces or with roasted chicken. Already enjoyable, this wine will continue to improve over the next 3 to 7 years.

Excellent price for a Chardonnay a this level!
