More information on wine critics and ratings

Great gold colour, with a trademark mineral, textured nose reflective of the site and fruit, integrated with French oak. The soil characteristics of this wine over the past 15 years have dominated the style evident today. A fine but firm palate with great acidity, texture and length. 

Richer and more intense than the 2011, the 2012 is more similar to the vintages of 2006 and 2010.

James Halliday (JH) : 96 Points (2013)
From the same site as the Sangreal Pinot Noir; Dijon clones and P58, hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed juice and solids to French oak (30% new) for wild fermentation, stirred to start mlf, 11 months from picking to bottling. Why in god's name throw the wine to the cork wolves? It's a beautiful, power-packed, tangy, yet fine, chardonnay that will be dead in the water in 10 years time. I'll put my house on the outcome.

Robert Parker (RP) : 94 Points (2013)
The 2013 Chardonnay is exotically scented of guava, green mangos and pineapple with savory suggestions of marmite toast, buttered popcorn and roasted almonds plus a hint of struck flint. Medium-bodied with a gorgeous silky texture, it has wonderful purity and sophistication, finishing long and harmonious.

Sangreal is the most seamless and perfumed of the three single vineyard pinots; seductive, seamlessly balanced and moreish. Once again in 2012 the alluring characters of this site…

A wine with deep sensations: one can feel the vibrant fruit along with fibrous and sculpted tannins. A fusion between ripe flavor profiles and the precision of mineral characters, the projection of fine tannins and the encompassing texture of a delicate wine.
