FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Quality Marlborough Chardonnay and a lovely example of the modern, more elegant style supported by some good old fashioned robust palate weight. Partial barrel fermentation in French oak has given this wine a gorgeous texture while the soft acidity on the finish holds your interest throughout. Good wine.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Elegantly composed and delightfully expressed, the wine shows white flesh stone fruit, lemon zest, nougat and cashew notes on the nose, followed by a beautifully rounded palate offering juicy fruit flavours with subtle oak infusion, finishing long and delectable."
The winery writes "Our Estate Chardonnay is made in a fruit forward style made for immediate drinking, showcasing the estate grown fruit. Some barrel aging adds to the complexity of the wine, but it is the fruit that is the hero here, showing the typical citrus and stone fruit flavours of chardonnay balanced by fine acidity and roasted nut and pastry. Roast chicken loves this wine!"
