JAMES SUCKLING'S TOP 100 WINES OF NEW ZEALAND 2019

95 Points

This has such complex and rich style to it with a flinty edge to the peach, grilled-lime and lemon-pith aromas. The palate has really rich textural layering and plenty of peach, grapefruit and pastry flavors. Resolved, powerful and smooth. Drink or hold.

HUON HOOKE

94 Points

Medium yellow colour reflecting some age development, while the bouquet is very flinty, smoky and sulfidic, the burnt-matchstick note almost straying into an electrical-fire smell. Liberal oak has been employed. The wine is full-bodied and intense, but elevated acidity keeps it very much alive on the tongue. This wine makes a statement. It's an extreme style as far as sulfides go.

Winery Tasting Notes

APPEARANCE

Pale straw in colour.

AROMA

A pure, bright and youthful citrus-driven chardonnay with complex smokey, flint, toast and biscuit notes derived from extended barrel aging on full solids.

PALATE

A strong year for Chardonnay delivered vibrant, lively acidity. The palate is focussed and restrained which unfurls on the finish and exposes the intense citrus core with underlying cashew, nutty flavours.
