|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A very appealing Chardonnay with complex layers of fragrance and flavours, ranging from tropical mango, pineapple, peach, vanilla and toasted nuts to sweet spice and slight grassy notes. Rich, creamy mouthfeel yet light on the tongue. Elegant from start to finish. Available in the May 11 Vintages release.

|Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Clove, nutmeg, and buttered popcorn frame lemon, peach, and subtle tropical aromas. Fresh acidity, plenty of lemon and minerality on the palate. Creamy texture leads into a long finish featuring fruit-oak interplay. Sauvignon Blanc is king in New Zealand, but their Chardonnays are not too shabby. Enjoy this impressive white with roast chicken or turkey, crab cakes, or grilled shrimp kebabs.
|Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
I attended the Pure Discovery 2019 event featuring wines from New Zealand. At the Ottawa event May 9, 2019 I focused on New Zealand’s whites, which included mainly Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
I tried this Chardonnay with aromas of vanilla and spicy notes. Nice creamy texture and flavours of peach and vanilla. 12.5% alcohol

Delicate, soft nose of candied lychee and apple blossoms. Fruit and floral carry to the palate. Soft and round on the palate. This will make an aromatic, fruity sipper for the summer. Drink now. Serve with shrimp, scallops, chicken. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
|From Wairarapa, North Island Paddy Borthwick 2017 Chardonnay is fragrant with tropical fruit, vanilla spice and toasted hazelnuts. Dry, creamy and zesty on the palate with a lingering lemon curd and briny mineral finish. Elegant, enjoy now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews|
