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

Classic flint on the nose with floral, lemon, pear and peach notes. The palate is beautifully balanced with a lovely play between a fruit core and steely backbone. A saline element and succulent,…

Bright yellow in colour with hints of green. On the nose it is intense and harmonious with a rich citrus and peach fruit character. On the palate, tropical notes with ripe lemon touches lead onto a long, lively and refreshing finish.
