On Giants' Shoulders Chardonnay


Current Vintage 2016 -

Bob Campbell – 94/100

"Taut, elegant chardonnay with hazelnut, ginger, peach and subtle citrus and grapefruit flavours. A curious textural feature of the wine is a fine, peppery, almost spicy finish. Integrated oak and a lengthy finish. I'd love to taste it again in five years".

 

Raymond Chan – 18.5/20

"Brilliant light golden-yellow colour, paler on the edge.  The nose has rich, ripe aromas of yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit with tropical fruit notes, harmoniously melded with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak elements, along with a little lemon-curd MLF.  The nose possesses depth and a soft density.  Medium-bodied, the palate has good intensity and concentration of ripe yellow stonefruit and citrus fruit flavours entwined with creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak notes.  The palate is fine-textured and smooth-flowing with fresh acidity and some underlying power providing good linearity.  Some lemon-curd MLF emerges as the wine carries to a dry, light-textured finish.  This is an elegantly concentrated, rich citrus-fruited Chardonnay".
