93 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
Complex, weighty Chardonnay made in a Reserve style by one of our favourite Waipara producers. Intelligent wine in the modern context but with the palate weight to keep the 'old school' Chardonnay disciples more than happy. Recommended.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Pure, fresh, bright, delicate yet distinctive with aromas of lemon and peach, golden apple, a light flinty mineral core and fine lees and nut bouquet. Crisp, tense, fruity, flinty and dry on the palate with a vibrant core of flavour and texture, mineral and wood spice, lees and mix of citrus and stone fruit flavours. I found this wine easy to enjoy on its own and with food. Could be cellared for 1 to 2 more years, but is equally fine for drinking now and through 2025."
