Steve Voysey has had a hand in making some of New Zealand’s great Chardonnays from Gisborne over the years. His claim to fame is arguably developing the ‘O’ for ‘Ormond’ wine which ended up being one of Pernod-Ricard’s best wines. Since Steve has left to make his own wines, he has continued to craft superior Chardonnays. I’m sure he would give considerable credit to the other influences, such as site and soil from where the fruit is sourced, indigenous yeasts and barrel-fermentation. Steve isn’t a fan of the reductive ‘gunflinty’ style, and has proven that great Chardonnay can be made in styles without it. -- Raymond Chan
What The Critics Say
93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim
"A comfortingly delicious chardonnay, the bouquet shows ripe nectarine, rockmelon, nougat and roasted cashew characters with hints of brioche and spice. The palate delivers excellent weight and succulent fruit intensity backed by creamy texture and refreshing acidity, finishing long and attractive. $28.00. www.spadeoak.co.nz. Sept 2019." Drink 2019 - 2023
