Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2016)
The 2016 Chardonnay was fermented and aged in 500-liter puncheons. It reveals elegant aromas of pencil shavings and white peaches, then flavors of pineapple. This medium to full-bodied wine is plump through the mid-palate, silky in texture and lingers on the finish.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16 Points (2008)
Tasted Jan 2011 - Herbal, salty and with some orange pith. Certainly charismatic, but perhaps a bit plastic? (RH)

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2007)
Remarkably consistent in quality year after year, Peg Bay’s 2007 Chardonnay opens with some slightly funky aromas that moderate with aeration to reveal a toasty, smoky wine with a core of melon fruit. It starts off seeming a touch narrow, but broadens and deepens on the palate, ending with impressive length. — J.C. (7/1/2010)

Amalaya Torrontes Riesling 2021
Amalaya Torrontes Riesling 2021
Intense gold in colour with tints of green. On the nose this wine is intense and complex with aromas of citrus and grapefruit typical of Torrontes. Delicate and silky on the palate with great freshness and crisp acidity on the distinctly mineral finish.
