Expert Reviews

92 pts - Angus Hughson (The Wine Pilot)

Long time Marlborough producer Allan Scott has seen it all, from the early days of Marlborough through to its now global superstar status. And in that time his Chardonnay has never changed. It’s no wishy washy, modern style – this is your classic oak bomb fermented and aged in French oak barrels to craft a wine that is full of flavour. It is golden in colour, with guava, honeysuckle and citrus fruits plus lots of spicy vanillin oak to match. It is dry, full-bodied and powerful which is all kept in balance by very crisp acidity driving to a long and bright finish, again backed by some toasty oak. Old fashioned and oaky Chardonnay at its best.

4 stars - Winestate

Unfolding well, this rich, smooth wine was hand-picked in the Wairau Valley and fermented and aged for eight months in French oak puncheons. Mouthfilling, it has strong, ripe stonefruit flavours, gently seasoned with toasty oak, a hint of butterscotch and a slightly creamy texture.

Winery Tasting Notes

A luxurious Marlborough Chardonnay, displaying typical mineral notes from the Wairau Valley. The stone fruit, pear and almond aromas are rounded off with a scrumptious mouth feel from its time in oak. Don’t let a perfectly matched seafood chowder or avocado and tuna tapas stop you from enjoying this wine. It is flawlessly delicious on its own.
