“The Fuder Clayvin Chardonnay sure adds to the growing list of absolute knock-out Chardonnay’s of true global significance emerging these days from New Zealand. The highly revered Clayvin vineyard, from which this comes, does not fail to live up to its reputation, yielding a profoundly intense and complex wine redolent of ripe peaches, acacia honey, cashews and crushed chalk with marzipan and brioche nuances. Medium-bodied,it fills the mouth with savoury and mineral flavours with a satiny texture and lively acid backbone, finishing with lingering honey nut notes."
96/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Generously proportioned chardonnay with power-plus yet perfectly balanced and showing nice integration from a little bottle age. Mineral, oyster shell, grapefruit, white peach, toasted nut and brioche with a hint of floral character. A complex wine with impressive length and development potential. 5/11/2016" Drink 2016 - 2022

5 Stars Michael Cooper

"From Giesen, this wine is grown in the famous Clayvin Vineyard, in the Brancott Valley, and fermented and matured in 1000-litre German oak casks (fuders), which 'develop greater complexity and refinement, but the oak doesn't dominate'. The tight, youthful, age-worthy 2014 vintage (5*) is bright, light lemon/green, with a fragrant, complex, slightly smoky bouquet. Mouthfilling, it is elegant, with concentrated grapefruit and peach flavours, integrated oak, fine acidity, and a powerful, lasting finish." Drink 2016 - 2023
