'The Colour / appearance is vibrant green/yellow hue – fine twirling bead of bubbles. The nose has fresh aromas of green apple and acacia blossom backed up by subtle hints of minerality and whiffs of freshly baked brioche. The palate is well balanced with an elegant structure, fine mousse which imparts a gentle explosion of bubbles on the palate and a long finish.' – Silverthorn

Tasting notes on the 2017 vintage:

'Robertson’s limestone soils impart purity, intensity to 100% chardonnay bubbly. 2017 one of best, still youthful yet already complete. Citrus zest on cusp of handing over to nutty evolution, lingering toasty finish. Creamy weight from 30 months on lees, really fine mousse. 10% older-oak fermented, as was 2016 (4.5 stars, 94 pts). Also in magnum.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'The Green Man is all made with Robertson Chardonnay, most of it from a 29-year-old vineyard. Part of the base wine is wooded, while the overall blend spends 30 months on lees. White flower aromas lead you into a palate of citrus and cashew with racy freshness and oldvine concentration. Drink 2020-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100
