91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2014
Pale, bright lemon-yellow. Subtle, pure aromas of pear, fresh apple, hazelnut and iodine, complemented by spicy oak tones. Smoky, strong and rich if a bit youthfully disjointed, with strong acidity and underlying mineral backbone keeping the pear, citrus and underripe pineapple flavors quite tight today. Very wound-up for New Zealand chardonnay and built for a graceful evolution in bottle. I like the wine's savory umami texture, but hands off for now!
