More information on wine critics and ratings
The wine displays lovely peach and creamy notes, with an oyster shell minerality that runs through the palate. 
Full flavoured and textured but with a vibrant acidity and a long lingering finish, this wine delivers a plethora of stone fruit, blossoms and savoury notes. 
The oak influence is minimal allowing the true flavours of the fruit to shine.

Robert Parker (RP) : 87 Points (2015)
Aug 2016 - Reviewer : Lisa Perrotti-Brown. The 2015 The Olive Grove Chardonnay opens with ripe apple and honeydew melon notes plus suggestions of baking bread and allspice. The medium-bodied palate offers a good concentration of straightforward melon and spice flavors with pleasant freshness and good length. Drink: Now - 2018.

James Halliday (JH) : 87 Points (2015)
Gets the fruit up and going quickly and maintains the pitch more or less successfully through to the finish. Yellow stone fruits and spice. Flash of citrus to close.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2014)
Editor's Choice - Subtle notes of toasted grain frame citrus and peach fruit in this well-priced offering. It's not the biggest, most robust Chardonnay, but it delivers intensity allied to length, turning lemony on the powerful finish. Drink now–2020.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 89 Points (2014)
Mar 2016 - Light yellow-gold. Aromas of pear nectar, tangerine and jasmine, with a hint of leesiness in the background. Spicy and broad on the palate, offering yellow apple and pear flavors with a touch of bitter citrus pith. Closes spicy and taut, leaving floral and anise notes behind. -- Josh Raynolds

Vinedos de Alcohuaz Tococo Syrah 2015
Tococo isn’t just the name of this 100% Syrah wine’s single vineyard, but also of a unique bird that inhabits the Elqui Valley. Quick and unusually terrestrial, the Tococo is one of few species which prefers to run than to fly, which is why it can be seen darting from vineyard to vineyard all through Alcohuaz.
