  • Wine Accolade - 93 Points - John Schreiner

"Complex wine with aromas of stone fruit, and melon leading to flavours of citrus, peach and brioche."

93 points, John Schreiner

"This very rich, ripe and complex chardonnay sports a very intense, billowing nose of ripe pineapple/peach fruit, hazelnut, butterscotch fudge, vanilla, gentle wood smoke. It is full bodied, creamy and ripe, almost a bit soft, but quite velvety with alcohol under control. Excellent to outstanding length. Chill moderately."
