More information on wine critics and ratings

A wine with a wonderful core of sweet chardonnay fruit with the subtle underlying oak giving the wine lift and structure with a clean, fresh acid finish.

The wine has an extra layer of texture or ‘flintiness’ from the slight solids fermentation.

No malolactic fermentation has ensured a tight, lean style of chardonnay that should age well.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2018)
Chardonnay in a very pure, fruit-focused style that has a dialed-in peach core, as well as some honey and sweetly spicy oak influence that’s gently placed. The palate texture is supple, smooth and fleshy with bright lemons, underpinning softer, peachy flavors and flesh. Drink over the next five years. Screw cap.

James Halliday (JH) : 94 Points (2008)
Bright, pale straw-green; has excellent thrust and intensity, white peach, citrus and melon driving the wine, rather than barrel ferment in largely in French oak; is still developing, reaching maturity around 2013, and holding its fruit for years thereafter.

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2008)
eRobertParker.com # 194. May 2011. Reviewer : Lisa Perrotti-Brown. The 2008 Winemaker?s Selection Vat 47 Chardonnay is intensely scented of melons, warm peaches, apricot kernals, toast, cedar and a whiff of fresh ginger. Light-bodied, very crisp and concentrated in the mouth, it finishes long and zesty with just a bit of the oak jutting out. Still very youthful and taut, drink this one 2012 to 2018+.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2006)
Issue: Web Only - 2009. Bright and focused. A clean, spare style that emphasizes pretty pear, apple and mineral flavors that linger enticingly on the medium-weight finish. Drink now through 2013. 3,000 cases made. ?HS.The 2008 Vat 47 Chardonnay has aromas of ripe apricots, orange peel and honeydew melon with hints of coriander seed and toast. Light-bodied with a silky texture and medium-high, balanced acid, it has a good amount of citrus and apple flavors and a long finish. Drinking nicely now, it should cellar to 2017+.

The wine is floral fruit in youth, which moves towards biscuity characters with age. The palate is generally softer bodied with smoother acids than the Vat 1 and Belford Semillons
