"This classy wine is estate-grown and hand-harvested on the south side of the Wairau Valley, fermented and matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (typically 10 per cent new), and given a full, softening malolactic fermentation. The 2021 vintage is still unfolding. Deep straw in colour, it's a fresh and subtle expression with cool, citrus tones, hazelnuts and lanolin notes. The impact of 18 months elevage adding elements of oatmeal and brioche. Bracing, fresh, ripe, citrus leads on the palate. Lovely, salivating acidity gives the wine drive and focus before more subtle creamy textures build on the finish. Tightly coiled with generous concentration, it will reward a few extra years in the cellar before drinking. Drinks beautifully now or can be cellared for 10+ years." - Winemaker Notes 

"Intense chardonnay with lemon curd, oyster shell, ginger, struck flint and attractively integrated spicy oak flavours. Youthful wine with bright, juicy acidity that brings energy while driving a lengthy finish. Classy chardonnay. Should develop well with bottle age." - 96 Points, Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review
