Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale gold in colour with flavours of peaches, pineapple, banana, coconut, vanilla, white pepper, and yogurt. Clean and warming on the lingering finish.
Drink now; keep until 2015.
Pair with lobster, light olive oil and cream pasta dishes.
Date tasted: February 2014.
Stonier chardonnay walks the tasty line between the fat chardonnays of old and the sometimes ultra-austere versions now in vogue in some quarters. It’s based on the outstanding fruit flavour produced the cool, maritime environment of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula... It combines generosity of varietal flavour, vibrant fresh acidity and a smooth texture derived from partial barrel fermentation and maturation (and, judging by the flavour, a little malolactic fermentation – a secondary, acid-reducing process that inserts a subtle butterscotch note).
