'The Green Man hails from a 28-year-old vineyard on shale and limestone soils and is a very smart Chardonnay that includes 10% barrel fermentation of the base wine. Just off dry, with classic brioche and hazelnut flavours, very racy acidity and an umami undertone. Drink 2020-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 94/100

'Suggestion of toasty, nutty evolution alongside fresh lemony zest on 2016 from 100% chardonnay. Satisfying creamy weight from 29 months on lees & really fine, energetic bubble deliver MCC of elegance, intensity & length. 10% older oak fermented.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)
