"Rich, weighty chardonnay with intense toast, mineral, oyster shell, white peach, nectarine, ginger-nut biscuit and spicy French oak flavours..." 97pts, Five Stars. BOB CAMPBELL MW

"Complex bouquet, enticing and beguiling aromas of ripe orchard fruits – white peach, pear and pear skin, red apple then a fine mix of lees, sweet spicy oak and light sulphide attack. On the palate – delicious, youthful, tense, textured and packed with subtly and intrigue. Fruit flavours reflect the nose - with an added citrus layer - as do the spices of oak and lees textures. Complex and lengthy finish. A stunning example." 97pts CAMERON DOUGLAS MS

"The 2016 Chardonnay Moutere stands tall as one of New Zealand's top Chardonnays. It may not be as intensely concentrated as some vintages, but this medium-bodied wine still carries itself with elegance and grace. Toasty oak frames refined melon and pear fruit, peach and pineapple, all underscored by a silky texture and a fine line of citrus that lingers on the finish." 94pts JOE CZERWINSKI, FOR ROBERT PARKER WINE ADVOCATE

"Finely spiced with keen citrus fruit and good acidity, this is tightwound and complex, showing precise flavours of pear, lemons and a bit of grapefruit pith. There’s a bit of warm spiciness from the oak, but it’s very well integrated. With high acidity and restrained fruit ripeness, this has all the ingredients needed for happy development in bottle over the next 10 years. Great concentration and intensity, but no heaviness. Currently very tight and backward, as you’d expect." 94pts AMIE GOODE

"Leesy nose and super crisp with a hint of dill. This would satisfy many already but I'm sure it will evolve in bottle. It's a bit less flamboyant and more mineral rather than fruity compared to Rosie's Block, and none the worse for that. Super appetising." 16.5pts JANCIS ROBINSON MW

"Superbly rich but not overblown, with arrestingly intense flavours enlivened with fine acidity, this multi-faceted Nelson wine enjoys a reputation second to none among New Zealand Chardonnays. Grown in clay soils threaded with gravel at Upper Moutere, it is hand-harvested from mature vines, fermented with indigenous yeasts, and lees-aged, with regular stirring, for a year in French oak barriques (12 per cent new in 2016). Bright, light yellow/green, the 2016 vintage is richly fragrant, with ripe, peachy, slightly toasty flavours, showing lovely vibrancy, complexity and depth. Threaded with fresh, appetising acidity, it is still youthful, but already a memorable mouthful. Five Stars, Super Classic." MICHAEL COOPER

"A very impressive wine for the density and depth of ripe peach and pear fruits. The nose has terrific purity and clarity. The palate has an effortless, gliding feel to it, concentrated but so balanced it's seemingly weightless. Finishes tight and tidy." 94pts NICK STOCK, JamesSuckling.com

"This is a well-concentrated, rich, complex layered Chardonnay with stonefruit, mealy and nutty notes on a fresh, vibrant palate." 19/2pts RAYMOND CHAN
