Jancis Robinson MW: "Very pale. Interesting, layered, lightly matchstick nose. Smoke and exotic fruit but an undertow of really interesting terroir. So different from the Giaconda Chardonnays of old. Great balance, and a bit more fruit than some. Crystal clear. Lots to chew on – a bright future. Drink 2017-2024." 18 points

The Wine Companion: "Hand-picked, whole bunch-crushed and basket-pressed, fermented in French oak (30% new), 100% malolactic fermentation, matured for 22 months, not filtered. Pale, bright straw-green; the bouquet is very complex, yet subtle due to ephemeral husky/creamy nuances. The sheer power of the palate is of a category unique to Giaconda (and perhaps Leeuwin Estate), for it is on you before you realise it, the acidity bright and fresh notwithstanding the malolactic fermentation." 98 points
