The ‘big brother’ of our Champion te Pa Chardonnay. This is a refined, sophisticated expression of single vineyard Marlborough fruit from the St. Leonard’s vineyard in the Central Wairau Valley sub-region. 

Apple crumble and marzipan notes are supported by primary aromas of lemon, peach and fig with subtle jasmine and citrus blossom florals. Some high-quality oak adds a wisp of smoke and some vanilla, flint, and caramel notes. The palate is beautifully textured, with almond, citrus rind, and spice flavours sprinkled over a core of crème brülée. A subtle oyster shell minerality gives way to a long lingering finish.

93 | Tight sulfides of the struck match kind. Still fresh though. The palate is long though sulfides rather than fruit characters dominate. Lemony.

90 | MY colour; oaky/smoky sulfides; smoked charcuterie; some age development but also a lot of oak. Acidity a mite shrill also.

93 | Starting to show some bottle development but still quite tight, with acidity very much to the fore. New oak adds sweet spice layer and there is concentration.

94 | reduction, clean laser focus oak, fantastic action on the palate, the wine is brilliant and zesty, complex, layered firing on all cylinders, bravo!
