REVIEWS & ACCOLADES

95 Points - Bob Campbell (Master of Wine)

Quite a ripe, fleshy chardonnay with peach, stone fruit, wet stone, mineral, roasted nut and bran biscuit flavours. A smooth-textured wine with plenty of power and a lingering finish. Can be appreciated now but has development potential.

96 Points - Cameron Douglas (Master Sommelier)

Complex, familiar and enticing bouquet of Chardonnay with a creamy textured bouquet of yellow fleshed fruits, vanilla, oak spices, yoghurt and wild flowers. Fabulous textures on the palate with lots of energy and freshness; medium+ acidity, minerality, spice and length. A wine to enjoy now and through 2024 or cellar.

18.5/20 Raymond Chan

Bright golden-yellow colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is full with softly concentrated aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit harmoniously entwined with an amalgam of creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak. The aromatics are densely packed, unfolding suggestions of buttery MLF. Full-bodied, the palate has integrated ripe flavours of yellow stonefruits, citrus and tropical fruit and creamy oak with buttery notes. The fruit is fulsome and mouthfilling with breadth and roundness, the acidity ripe and soft. There is considerable alcoholic power and drive, and the wine carries positively to a solid, deep, sustained finish. This is a fulsome, mouthfilling Chardonnay with ripe yellow stonefruit and citrus fruit melded with creamy and nutty oak, and plenty of power.
