19/20 FIVE STARS Raymond Chan | Wine Reviews.
95/100 FIVE STARS Bob Campbell, MW.
A powerful, robust wine. Big but not dumb and as Bob Campbell, MW calls it 'heroic'. A Chardonnay for real Chardonnay lovers.
19/20 Raymond Chan: "Medium-full bodied, the palate has a firm core, immediately opening with mouthfilling flavours of white and yellow stonefruits layered seamlessly with nutty notes and subtle gunflint and mineral notes. The mouthfeel balances creamy barrel-ferment textures with a fine phenolic-textured line, and fresh, lacy acidity. The wine has power and the palate flows to a long, lingering, fine-textured, dry, nutty finish. This is a firm and powerful Chardonnay with harmoniously mouthfilling flavours of stonefruits, nuts, flint and complexing minerals on a fine-textured palate. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 5-6 years."
