The excellent 2022 vintage came on the heels of three others, in a magnificent chain of four superb quality harvests. The Kumeu vineyards that contribute to this wine produced a blend of Chardonnay that is particularly ripe, peachy and not only delicious to drink, but has the concentration and lingering complexity that we have come to expect from this wine. This is quality Chardonnay wine of style and pedigree that has the capability of aging as well as any of its predecessors.

"Some real richness on the nose. Then a green streak. Very fine texture! With Puligny savour and lift. Creamy yet fresh. Bullseye for the style. Good light grip on the end. Convincing. GV. 13%. Drink 2023 – 2028" 16.5+ Points, Jancis Robinson MW (Sep 2023)

"Aromas and flavors of sliced apples, lemon curd and hints of stone. Oyster shell. Lime undertones. It’s medium-bodied. Firm and fine phenolics. Tension and focus. Impressive for the vintage. Drink now or hold. Screw cap." 95 Points, James Suckling (Nov 2023)
