Natalie's Score: 90/100
Lovely toasted almond from the oak aging wraps around green apple and pear aromas and flavours. Full-bodied and delicious. Terrific with roast chicken.
Chardonnay food pairings: firm-flesh seafood, rich poultry, pork dishes.

|Paula Moloney rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:|
Nice light chardonnay , it is now a new favourite of mine.
|Bright, even straw-yellow colour with light golden hues. This has a firm, intense and tightly bound bouquet of ripe citrus and mealy fruit, quite densely packed, with aromas of cream and butter with nuts, smoke and oak intermingling. Dry and medium-bodied, the expression is a little shy, but the presence and concentration is clear. Ripe citrus and stonefruit flavours and notes of butter form the core, and are complexed by nutty oak and flinty elements. Balanced acidity and fine, soft textures feature through the palate leading to a dry, chalky finish with very good length. This Chardonnay will unfold and become richer over the next 5-6 years. Score 18+ (out of 20). Full-bodied & Rich. Source: Raymond Chan, raymondchanwinereviews.co.nz, Nov. 9, 2011|
