    August 6, 2017 - Still drinking well in 2017! Light, slight pineapples, apples, slight oak, very little touch of cream at the end. Medium to long finish.. nice!

    May 31, 2015 - Screw cap, slight sulphur on nose on first opening, left to clear 10 mins. Elegant now, leaning in feel and flavour towards an unoaked Chardonnay.

    May 13, 2015 - I don't know what the people who critized this wine before drank but I find this wine delicous. A lot of grapefruit lemongrass and orange skin has this wine. Although I am not a fan of Cloudy Bay and younger vintages disappointed me, this wine vintage is superb.

    October 3, 2013 - Far from the best example of this wine I've tasted. The fruit is on the wane. Probably past it's peak some time ago.
