Lime skin, toasty brioche, complex nose. Beautifully balanced palate, textural with driving acidity and great length. One of the NZ greats of Chardonnay.

Others seemed to like this wine. Not me. Diesel aromas, melon skin, no ML, bright and crisp.

Great Chardonnay. Focused and intense, with impressive structure and finish. Plenty of life ahead. Seems to be gaining focus, in fact.

Fool me once. Shame on you.
You fool me twice, I surrender. Always think this is really good Meursault in a blind.

A classic chardonnay in the biz. Funky, almost old world-ish in its charm.
