|Simon Chen rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Personally, i like the super toasty aromas on the nose. It's something you will pick up right away. The wine is rounded, a touch of buttery but has good acid to balance it off.
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This is great Chardonnay. Reminds me of Meursault. Baked apple, baked pear, brioche, candied lemon, smoke, and fine minerals. 91 Points.
|Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Yummmmm. My favourite Chardonnay’s lean toward the buttery side so this one may be my new bestie! A soft yellow colour, sweet aromas of ripe pear and light oak, and flavours of juicy peach, light citrus and some minerality add up to a winning package. This would be great paired with lobster. Tasted September 16, 2018.
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Pale lemon green in colour with aromas of peachy citrus and stoney pithy minerals. Flavours are composed of subtle apricot, nectarine and cucumber skins. Delicate and soft. Acidity is bright with a light body carrying into the finish. A fine pairing for soft cheeses or herbed chicken. 89 points - tasted September 16, 2018
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of golden apple, pear, baked bread, and almost a smoky note. Medium bodied, lots of lemon and apple on the palate with nice warm toasty notes on the palate. A bit of a mineral note on the finish. Enjoy with grilled chicken.
|Pressed and settled without the use of any sulphur or settling agent. This wine fermented naturally in stainless steel for 3 weeks. It was transferred to French oak to complete fermentation. Natural malolactic was completed in full while ageing on lees in barrel. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.|
A nose layered with spice pear, wet stone and floral notes. Creamy minerality on the midpalate with a long, steely finish.
