97  James Suckling
“The mineral character of this wine is currently so pronounced and the fruit so closed that it’s not easy, also because of the slight funk from reduction, to identify the grape variety. On the palate, this marathon-runner chardonnay is very clean and highly structured with lots of drive, the finish very long and complex. Drink or hold. Screw cap.” (10/2018)

95 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Always the longest lived of the Kumeu River Chards, the 2017 Mate’s Vineyard Chardonnay starts off smoky and flinty, marked by zesty grapefruit and lime fruit. It’s medium to full-bodied yet tightly coiled, with great energy, thrust and vitality, which translate into tremendous length on the electric finish.” (2/2019)

94 Neal Martin for Vinous
“The 2017 Maté’s Vineyard Chardonnay has a really beautiful, quixotic bouquet of apricot blossom, white peach, minerals and dandelion scents that waft temptingly from the glass. The harmonious, lightly spiced palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity and a succinct, perfectly pitched finish that offers just the right amount of sapidity. Superb.” (2/2019)
