Beverly Crandon rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

On colour, this Chardonnay holds a pale straw hue, and it isn’t until you nose this beauty that you start to get a sense of what you are in store for. The scents alone are enough to make your mouth water as it is filled with smells of green apple, citrus, some spice and light oak. On the palate, you are met with tastes of melon, honey, with a creamy, buttery long finish. One of the things that also made this wine stand out for us on the palate is that though the fermentation process included some barrelling (50% tank, 50% barrel), the oak elements were lightly present and not overbearing, allowing all of the wines elements to be noticed and appreciated.
