Reviews:

... this is a substantial chardonnay with savoury flavours and a light veneer of toast and oak. The acid is bright and clean and the wine is harmonious in its integration. Jan 2017, 4 to 5 stars

 ... It's a linear, calm and directed soul raised from Prince Edward County soil royalty. The vintage offers up low-crop, scrupulously cropped stable if unexceptional fruit. Though not so tart, nor tense neither, there is a sense of tannic zest. Cool and precise, this represents concrete work from incumbent winemaker Keith Tyers. Drink 2016-2021. Tasted February 2016. Score: 91

... It's a big chardonnay, flavour-wise, yet carries a great sense of poise and tension on the palate. It is the aromas and flavours that are unusual - with complex lemongrass, candle wax, wood spice, struck match and chive (reduction)... The finish is fairly crisp and even, and the length is excellent to outstanding. Tasted June 2016 Score: 90
