Accolades

"The Vicar's Choice Chardonnay is fresh with bright stone and citrus fruit, just a tickle of creaminess from oak and malolactic fermentation, and a nice intensity on the aftertaste."
Charmian Smith, Otago Daily Times, 4 July 2007


"This is an easy drinking Chardonnay with ripe peach and pineapple flavours with creamy complexity and a whisper of oak. The palate is juicy and fruity with a lovely smooth texture. Just delicious."
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2007


"It is peachy and tropical with good acidity and freshness. A good chardonnay for those who don't like them too oaky and overblown, and it went down a treat with chicken and pickled ginger pie."
Manawatu Standard, 5 May 2007
