Expert Reviews

5 Stars. Richly fragrant wine with concentrated, grapefruit like flavours, seasoned with nutty oak, bottle aged complexity and a long, minerally finish. Currently in full stride. Winestate Apr-09

4 Stars & Best Wine of 2008. Still very fresh and youthful, with crisp, peachy, punchy fruit and nutty oak undertones. Stylish, slightly creamy wine with good texture and richness. Winestate Annual 2009 Jan-09

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2006 Marlborough Reserve Chardonnay features a youthfully tight nose with a core of lemon and mineral, complimented by natural ferment derived hints of complex flint and smoke. Tightly structured in style, citrus fruits are accompanied by fine grained oak and sleek acidity on the palate. A well integrated wine which finishes with exquisite elegance and length. (October 2007)
