4.5 STARS – 2019 Buyers Guide to New Zealand Wines
Wine Writer – Michael Cooper
Already delicious. Bright yellow, with a fragrant, slightly buttery bouquet, it is a sweet-fruited, well-rounded wine, with generous stone fruit flavours, gentle, nutty oak characters adding complexity, and loads of drink-young appeal.

93/100 – The Real Review
Bob Campbell – Master of Wine
An impressively rich, weighty Chardonnay with ripe peach, honey, sizzled butter, ginger and spicy oak flavours. A classy crowd-pleaser.

2017

4 STARS – 2018 Buyers Guide to NZ Wines
Wine Writer – Michael Cooper

Full of drink-young appeal, the generous 2017 vintage (4*) was grown at Havelock North, matured for eight months in seasoned French oak barrels and given a softening malolactic fermentation. Bright, light yellow/green, it is mouthfilling and vibrant, with strong, peachy flavours, hints of stonefruit and butterscotch, and a slightly creamy finish. Now-2020+.

2016

4 STARS – 2018 Buyers Guide to New Zealand Wines
Wine Writer – Michael Cooper
A fresh, lively, fruit-driven style. Light lemon/green, it has strong, peachy, citrusy fruit flavours to the fore, a minerally streak, and subtle, yeasty, nutty notes adding considerable complexity.
