"If you like a chewy, chunky, big Chardonnay, here it comes. It's like you've walked into the room and somebody 's left the light off but the volume on the stereo loud at 10. You smell this and it's BOOM! It's straight volume on 10, or even 11." - Cameron Douglas(MS)

Winemaker's Notes

Picked from our 28-year-old vines and some of the newer plantings from our Te Awanga vineyards; 10 different soil types in the vineyard; four separate picking times; 10 barrel makers; three yeast strains and wild yeasts all contribute to the complexity of this iconic wine. The same winemakers Tim & Barry and vineyard manager Grant have been involved in the production of this wine for nearly the past quarter century.
