Joe Hache Opimian Society rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Not a big fan of Chardonnay's as they are usually quite oaky, I was plesantly surprised with this New Zealand offering. It was only lightly oaked and to me this allows the chardonnay flavor to shine through. It had wonderful citrus aromas and a wonderful intensity on the palate. Being lightly oaked gave it a smooth chrisp finish without the (in my opinion) overbearing buttery finish of a more heavily oaked chard. We had this with Salmon and it paired perfectly.
