FIVE STARS 95/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Premium Marlborough Chardonnay from the first winery established in the region. Their single vineyard chardonnay is always an exceptional release, with carefully selected fruit given every attention in the winery to produce this elegant wine.
The winery writes "Ripe and intense stone fruit flavours of peach and dried apricot complimented by subtle French oak influence giving hints of roasted hazelnut. A tight and linier palate with underlying minerality concludes with seamless length. "
Sam Kim writes "Magnificently styled and elegantly expressed, the bouquet shows white flesh peach, grapefruit, roasted hazelnut and nougat notes, leading to a wonderfully concentrated palate displaying excellent depth and persistency. It’s brilliantly structured by firm acidity, finishing impressively long and linear."
