“The bouquet and palate of this Chardonnay showcase fine winemaking, really good fruit and Marlborough. Aromas and flavours of lemon and apple, grapefruit and new oak, a crumbled soil mineral layer and super fine wood tannins. The acidity is plentiful helping to push the messages of youth, fruit purity and freshness. Medium+ weight, satin texture, balanced, well made and ready. Best drinking upon purchase and through 2024. I also tasted this wine 24 hours earlier and the wine today is as compact and fine now as it was then.” JUN 20

“The 2018 vintage was hand-picked at two sites, in the lower Wairau Valley and the Southern Valleys, and fermented and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques and puncheons. Fragrant and mouthfilling, it has excellent depth of ripe, peachy, slightly toasty flavours, showing good complexity, gentle acidity and a creamy-smooth finish. It’s already drinking well.”
