This is a wonderful example of relatively cool weather Chardonnay. Not a big warm weather monster, this has subtle expression and elegance, rather than a big whack of oak and butter. 

Still, it has a luscious mouth feel and a wonderful complexity of fruit and mineral flavours.

Raymond Chan, 19/20:

"Bright, light golden-green hued straw-yellow colour. The bouquet is elegant and exudes finesse with seamlessly interwoven aromas of white stonefruits, gunflint reduction and toasted nuts, all in balance and proportion. Full-bodied, concentrated and intense flavours of white stonefruits and citrus fruit are the feature on palate, with complexing elements of minerals, flint and toasty nuances. The flavours are beautifully integrated, forming a deep, smooth-flowing core with richness and near creamy textures, expressed with stylish restraint. The mouthfeel has vitality and acid tension to balance, and the wine carries the flavours to a very long and sustained finish with stonefruit and mineral notes. This is a smooth, seamless and refined Chardonnay with concentration and flinty complexity."

Vinous, 90/100:

"Bright, pale yellow. Yellow peach, gingery oak and a musky smoked-meat nuance on the nose, along with some honeyed high tones. Supple, lush and deep, offering an impression of strong saline extract to the slightly reduced flavors of yellow stone fruits. At once dry and mouthfilling, this chardonnay delivers very good inner-mouth tension and impressive density for the vintage."
