97/100 – Bob Campbell MW
95/100 – Mike Bennie, The Wine Front

“A rich, mellow chardonnay with wholemeal, bran biscuit, apricot, peach, mango, root ginger, cashew nut and spicy oak flavours (among others). An intriguing wine that offers layers of flavours on its very lengthy finish. The wine has obvious power but it’s delivered with consummate subtlety. A very distinctive and highly appealing chardonnay.” – Bob Campbell MW

Tasting Note: Vibrant straw yellow. Mirabelle plum, acacia flower, fennel blossom; allspice, fenugreek and crushed fennel seed. A compelling combination of things sweet and green – garden herbs – and things young and yellow, flowers-goldenrod, dandelion, calendula. So clean and pure so cool in texture, like cold mountain air, that the concentration and extract at the end of the palate come as nearly a shock. Long and intense, but always remaining fresh.
