The KBS Chardonnay Vineyard, planted in the 1980s on red volcanic soils, has been a highly regarded block for decades and continues to impress as it evolves over the vintages.

A savoury and enveloping wine in 2022. On the nose we see notes of white nougat, lemon curd, roasted cashews and the suggestion of a hint of gun flint. The palate is generous and comforting, with a supple, almond meal flavour carrying front to back but equally a kafir lime leaf like flavour on the finish is attest to nature of acid and oak sitting in perfect harmony. Persistent, voluminous and the right level of richness, ensure past lovers of the KBS style will find familiarity here.

There’s a generosity to the Stonier chardonnays and it's on show here. Quince and white peach infused with lemon juice and zest, lemon curd and nutty/creamy lees flavours then warm spices and oak come into play. There’s a lot going on flavour-wise, yet everything is neatly in place with the palate supple and smooth and the finish long and convincing.  -Jane Faulkner
