GOLD MEDAL - Sakura Wine Awards 

"Bright, light straw-yellow colour with light lemon-gold tints and a little depth, pale edged.  The nose is well-proportioned with concentrated and deeply packed aromas of white and yellow stonefruits and citrus fruits harmoniously melded with creamy and nutty lees and barrel-ferment layers, hints of spice and delicate nuances of butterscotch MLF.  Medium-full bodied, the palate has a tight and concentrated core with intense and penetrating flavours of citrus and stonefruits entwined with creamy barrel-ferment and toasty oak, and harmoniously melded lemon-curd and buttery MLF.  The rich fruit is balanced by brisk, racy acidity.  The wine flows with plenty of energy and drive along a fine-textured line with good acid tension to a long and sustained finish.  This is a rich, but taut and concentrated Chardonnay with intense citrus and stonefruit flavours melded with creamy and nutty oak and butterscotch MLF, cut by brisk acidity." - 5 Stars, Raymond Chan    QED

"Complex and inviting, the attractive bouquet shows white nectarine, rockmelon, nougat, vanilla and hazelnut characters, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that is rounded and supple. The wine delivers delectable fruit    flavours with stylish  oak undertones, wonderfully supported by silky texture and creamy mouthfeel." - 93 points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
