"Light golden wheat colour. Layered expressions of citrus and tropical fruit with subtle layers of honey and almonds in the background. Balanced and superbly structured, the flavours arecomplimented by a delicate minerality."
"92 pts ... The 2012 Delaire Graff Chardonnay is whole bunch pressed, barrel-fermented and aged in wood for 10 months. It has a classy, quite sophisticated Burgundy-like bouquet that is very well-defined. The palate is rounded and very smooth on the entry with very well-integrated oak. It builds in the mouth with subtle peachy notes at the beginning and then hints of marzipan and orange zest on the focused, delineated finish. This is a well-crafted Chardonnay. Drink now-2017." --10/13
