18.5/20 POINTS: Raymond Chan
"Bright straw-yellow colour with light golden hues. The nose is firm and finely concentrated with a tight core of white stone-fruits and citrus fruits, along with fresh, steely minerals melded with hints of creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak that emerge to provide complexing interest. Medium-full bodied, the palate is taut and elegantly concentrated with bright stone-fruit and citrus fruit flavours at the heart, along with a layer of creamy, nutty oak, balanced by crisp, refreshing, cutting acidity. The wine has elegance and linearity, and flows along a very fine phenolic-threaded line, carrying to a long, sustained finish of citrus fruit and nuts. This is a taut, refreshing, finely concentrated Chardonnay with stone-fruit and citrus fruit flavours along with subtle nutty oak detail, with crisp, minerally acidity and linearity."
