Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A global success known by many, this wine is pale yellow in the glass and shows lots of tropical fruit on the nose - lemon and pineapple, vanilla and a charred smokiness. Medium bodied with a lingering lemon finish. Serve well chilled.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Warm-climate chardonnay chock-a-block with ripe, tropical fruit aromas and flavours, plenty of toasty oak and burnt caramel and a streak of zippy lemon woven into the mix. Try it with roast chicken and grilled veggies.
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

This is a straw yellow dry but medium-bodied fruity chardonnay that has seen some oak. It has good acidity and the nose is greeted with sweet vanilla toffee, lemon and white peaches. These flavours are replayed on the palate and it has a short, crisp lemon-peach finish. A nice sipper for the patio. This wine would pair well with a poached sole with green mango chutney.

Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

If you like lemons, you’ll like this Chardonnay…
Presentation: Clean, classy, but difficult to read due to the small font
Appearance: Pale yellow with a tinge of green
Nose: Pineapple, honey, lychee, popcorn
Taste: Lemon, pineapple, honey, a little butter, but with an unexpected sharpness
Finish: Long, sharp, pineapple, mineral
Overall impression: Not a bad Chardonnay, but surprisingly sharp. If you like lemons, this would be a nice, light option. It paired reasonably well with tomato and green onion Risotto (with lots of Parmesan), but should do equally well with Thai dishes or other spicier meals. Great value, too!
Value: 4/5
