Natalie's Score: 93/100

Spectacular! Round, full-bodied, layered, complex and generous. Mouth-filling flavours of green apple, toasted almond, hazelnut and green melon. Perfect for roast chicken, lobster in melted butter and great conversation. Chardonnay food pairings: crab cakes, halibut, shellfish.

Each year, there are single blocks of vineyard that show us something unique - small spots where vine maturity, soil and climate combine to create something distinctly CedarCreek. From its cool site, high up in the vineyard (directly beneath our winemaker’s front porch), Block 5 gave us startlingly bright fruit in 2011. It deserved to shine, so we let it. We used no malolactic fermentation to soften it up, and chose 500-litre puncheons for aging to keep the oak influence gentle. We wanted this wine to be as pure as the grapes were when we tasted them at harvest. You can taste the unique character of Block 5 in every glass. On that you have our word.
