|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Hand picked from the oldest Estate vineyards in the Short Hills Bench, the Speck Family Reserve is a wonderful representation of their high level of commitment to a superb product. This is a full bodied Chardonnay with lovely flavors of Ontario Bosc pears and spiced apple; vanilla and oak are present but not overpowering.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A rich Chardonnay made using hand-picked grapes from limited-yield vines. Results? Concentrated flavours and luscious texture in this elegant Chard that shows very rich tropical fruit, smoke, vanilla fudge and coconut in a creamy, satiny texture and lingering finish that you don't want to end. Pair with smoked fish or Lobster Thermidore.

|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
What a lovely wine. Hand picked from low-yield vines, this top-tier Chardonnay has beautiful aromas of warm apple and pear, with some spicy notes from French oak. Full bodied, flavours are quite concentrated on the palate, however show lovely balance with acidity, oak warmth, and fruit (more apple and lemon zest). This wine would complement many foods, but try with scallops or lobster, or creamy cheeses.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
The top level Chardonnay from the Speck brothers that can easily give quality Cali chards a run for their money. Full-bodied, round with smooth caramel and spiced oak infusing a web of apple, ctirus, pear. Try it with tagliatelle in a wild mushroom cream sauce.
|Dianne Sheridan - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
This beautifully crafted Chardonnay has depth with the aromas of honey, honeysuckle, melon, floral notes, vanilla, caramel and some spice. On the palate it is crisp with hints of grapefruit and citrus. It has a long citrus finish.
Pair with white fish and a cream sauce.
