Bottled without fining.
Bouquet: Restrained flintiness and patisserie notes.
Palate: Citrus core and mineral backbone, balanced, texture, fresh acidity.
Food match: Scallops, white fish and BBQ Pork.

"One of the best examples of Chardonnay from New Zealand, this is vivid, stylish and expressive with layers of sweet cream, orange blossom, nutmeg and mango flavors that are rich, juicy and succulent, revealing plenty of intensity and energy on the long lingering finish. Drink now through 2021." -93 Points, Mary-Ann Worobiec, Wine Spectator
