"Chardonnay is a classic Padthaway expression of the variety, boasting pineapple and citrus flavors. For those of a certain age, it will bring back pleasant memories of Lindeman's Padthaway Chardonnay (NOT Bin 65), a medium-bodied, succulent style of Chardonnay that speaks for itself in its popularity. - Joe Czerwinski" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Interim end of September 2018), 90 pts
"Light yellow. Smoke-accented aromas of poached pear and tangerine, with a gingery note adding lift. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering ripe orchard and citrus fruit flavors, with a buttery nuance emerging as the wine opens in the glass. Finishes supple and spicy, with lingering notes of bitter pear skin and quince. - Josh Raynolds" -Vinous (March 2016), 88 pts
"This 2013 Chardonnay Unoaked is an attractive, Chablis-styled 100% Chardonnay revealing copious aromas of caramelized citrus, nectarines, mangoes and a subtle chalky underpinning that provides minerality. Drink this medium-bodied, well-made Chardonnay over the next several years. - Robert Parker" - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (November 2014), 87 pts
"Interesting aromas of honeycomb, pink peppercorn, pineapple-mango cake and coriander with a tart, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a crisp, tangy passionfruit accented finish. Sassy and flavorful with lively acidity that will play well at the table."
