Staete Landt Chardonnay is one of the best kept secrets of the Estate: full and round yet stylish, great texture and length, this wine shows the perfect balance between fruit, acidity and oak integration.

The 'Josephine' Chardonnay offers pronounced notes of warm apricots, honeydew melon and spicy oak with hints of allspice, ginger and butterscotch flavors, it has a pleasantly satiny texture, refershing acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2015.
Rating 88 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, www.erobertparker.com (NOV/2012)
Dense, powerful and creamy Chardonnay with appealing mineral, grapefruit and white peach/nectarine that's flattered by a seasoning of nutty oak and yeast lees flavours. Pure and intense wine that's good now but should age well.
5 Star - Bob Campbell MW
Winery Tasting Notes
A whiff of sea breeze, citrus fruit and cream on the nose, white peaches and hazelnuts on the palate and with a mineral aftertaste that lingers on.
A truly great wine with a strong personalilty and European elegance, showing the unique cool climate Marlborough vibrance.
