A fruit driven, early drinking style; fruit sourced from younger vineyards cropped at under three-tonnes to the acre. The palate reflects the generous fruit of the nose, with careful use of oak to enhance varietal characteristics. The Stonier Chardonnay was 80% barrel fermented in predominantly old oak with lees stirring and complete malolactic fermentation, with 20% fermented in stainless steel maintaining the fresh, powerful fruit characters typical of this wine. Pale gold, with a green tinge. Lifted lemon blossom with exotic fruits and honey and a hint of spicy oak. Lovely fresh lemon sorbet flavours with a powerful condensed middle palate opening up to a lingering creamy citrus finish.

A full-flavoured chardonnay with good texture and vitality. The fruit is ripe and assertive, reflective of the vintage, with attractive mealy edges. Beautifully integrated acidity and a faint grapefruit undercurrent. A satisfying, complex, delicious wine at a great price. (Screwcap) Food: Crab linguini with toasted sourdough crumbs and fresh herbs. Drink: Now to 2020; Price: $25.00; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 91 Points; Toni Paterson; The Real Review

This is very nicely turned out Chardonnay. Flavour delivered, but with a little sizzle. Nectarine, lime and cashew, with a touch of vanilla and spice. Gentle viscosity and cashew creaminess, but lime flavour and acidity keeps it trim, along with a light flintiness. Finish is positive, with what you might call a  ‘lime spider’ aftertaste. Good stuff. Tasted: Aug 17; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $25; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2017-2020; Rated: 91 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
