91 points Robert Parker's the Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Chardonnay Y Block has a pretty nose of orange blossom, honey toast and toasted hazelnut with pie crust, warm peaches, baked apples and stony hints. Medium to full-bodied, it has good intensity of savory fruits with tangy freshness and a long finish."
91 points Wine Enthusiast
"This wine is plush and rounded in creamy white peach, daffodil and chamomile on the nose. A seared-pear flavor evolves into a flinty, gravelly minerality on the palate, with plenty of sea salt and lemon-laced brightness that zip into the finish." *Editor's Choice*
Vinous Reverie Notes
This is a classic cool climate Chardonnay made in a traditional style. Aromas of citrus, pears and nutmeg waft from the glass, with just a hint of vanilla and toasty oak from aging in barrel. Mouth-coating viscosity on the palate balanced by naturally fresh, crisp acidity. Completely dry, this is an elegantly balanced and structured Chardonnay.
