Smoky, almost gravelly, reductive elements add both complexity and tautness to this strictly controlled Chardonnay. Steely stone fruit flavours run through the palate with just the slightest hints of both sage and buttered toast. It’s a good wine. Not especially generous and certainly not flamboyant, but controlled and textural and with just enough fruit power.2017 - 2019
Vivid citrus fruits draw you in here: grapefruit, lime and lemon, with flashes of white peach and nectarine for good measure. Soft spice and potted cream feature on the mid-palate, and the finish powers along propelled by the mineral-laden acid line. Citrus-infused finish.2013Good Wine Guide
A lovely restrained, savoury - almost chalky - nose, fine steely edges, and some stone fruits, all neatly integrated. Really tightly wound palate, compact and savoury, with restrained melony fruits, bright acidity and a steely/chalky finish. Chablis-like, delicious.Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 2008
A modern, new world expression of pure Chardonnay. The cool yet sunny environment of our Te Awanga Vineyard near Cape Kidnappers allows the development of intense Chardonnay flavours in the grapes, captured using traditional winemaking techniques seen in the Chablis region of France.
Tasting Note: Lemon straw with green hue. Lifted fragrant nose of citrus blossom, lime, apple and the sense of a stony seashore. Softly textured with layered fruit richness and elegant integration of subtle fine grained oak. A dry, salivating finish.
Food Match: Fresh seafood.
Cellaring: 1-5 years from vintage.
