92 points "One of Australia’s most profound Chardonnays, is the 2002 Chardonnay Art Series. Always more backward and built for the long term, the 2002 exhibits buttered pear, honeyed citrus, lemon blossom, and apple-like fruit in a medium to full-bodied format with good acidity as well as a cooler climate mouthfeel and finish. It should drink well for 5-6 years. " Best 2006-2012

96 points "A wine of marvelous richness and unexpected subtlety, this has delicous pear, mineral, gooseberry and lime flavours in profusion, beautifully wrapped in a veil of spicy oak, persisting impressively on the long, long, finish. Drink now through 2020. HS" Best 2005-2020

93 points "($65) Light gold. Tangy, high-pitched aromas of Meyer lemon, pear, apple, spicy Asian basil, vanilla and clove. Round and supple but firmly built, with refreshing, bright flavors of ripe pears, Granny Smith apple and musky yellow plum. There's nothing tropical going on here, just a highly impressive collection of ripe orchard fruits. This has excellent flavor definition and structure, finishing with a brisk note of blood orange and subtle hints of hazelnut and oak spice. 93 points "
