"The wine shows a complex array of citrus, apricot, oatmeal and honey flavours with strong minerality and some subtle, spicy oak. This all follows onto a wonderfully full palate with crisp acids and great length. This Chardonnay is drinking beautifully at present, but try to exercise patience as it will only improve over the next 2-5 years."
"100% Barrel-fermented (30% new), aged ten months in French oak. 14% alc."
"91 pts ... The 2012 Chardonnay is barrel-fermented and sees 10 months in 600-liter French oak barrels (30% new). It has a fine white peach and dried pineapple-scented bouquet that has fine lift and verve. The palate is bright and zest on the entry with a fine line of acidity, plenty of subtle pineapple and mango flavors, and a lithe, satisfying, vibrant finish. Very fine. Drink now-2016."
