Vinous (Neal Martin): “The 2017 Estate Reserve Chardonnay was matured in 500-litre barrels using 40% new oak. It has quite a powerful bouquet of crushed stone, yellow stone fruit, jasmine and light walnut aromas that are very well defined, although it clearly needs a couple of years to absorb the oak. The palate is very precise on the entry, displaying notes of orange zest (veering toward blood orange), quince and nectarine. This has wonderful acidity and great build in the mouth toward a very impressive, almost Corton-Charlemagne-like finish. This will be outstanding once it reaches the peak of maturity. Drink 2020-2032.” 95 points

 Tim Atkin: “Sam O’Keefe’s Reserve all comes from her picturesque estate in Greyton and is an impressive wine in 2017. The wood needs time to integrate, but the fruit is tangy and bright, all citrus peel and grapefruit, with undertones of pear and passion fruit. 13.5% alc. Drink 2019-2025” 94 points

Jancis Robinson: “Aged in 500-litre barrels, of which 35% were new. Irresistible butter and sweet melon fruit aromas with a touch of spice and meal. Dry, fibrous, grainy texture yet with high-definition fruit, plus a bit of funky lees complexity. Great. Drink 2018-2022.” 17.5 points
