Flagship chardonnay with typically concentrated white peach, citrus, lime, honey and spicy oak flavours. A generously-proportioned chardonnay with obvious cellaring potential. Bob Campbell MW

Gentle notes of toasted grain mark the nose of the 2018 Mate's Vineyard Chardonnay, framing ripe pineapple and white peach aromas. There's a hint of bacon fat too. On the medium-bodied palate, the wine is slightly custardy and silky, while at the same time, it's crisp and focused, tightening on the finish into a coiled spring of citrus zest. Like most vintages of Mate's, this ideally needs a couple of years in the cellar to fully express itself. Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
