“Moderately intense, ripe peach, apple and citrus and grapefruit flavours that reflect an excellent vintage. Supple chardonnay with a perfect balance of fruit sweetness and fruity acidity. Elegant rather than blockbuster.” JUL 20

4 STARS
"Offering good value, the 2019 vintage is a regional blend, grown in the Wairau Valley and the Awatere Valley. Hand-harvested, barrel-matured for seven months, it is a characterful wine, bright, light lemon/green, with ripe, peachy, citrusy flavours, gently seasoned with oak, moderate acidity, considerable complexity, and a slightly creamy finish. Drink now or cellar."

“Dripping with joyously succulent tropical fruit and warming vanilla tones; lashings of bold, creamy oak and a generous, rounded texture wrapped up in a fresh core of acidity. Lasting.”
