Serious discount on this rich but classy Chardy from a legendary Gisborne winemaker. Steve Voysey is someone who made Gisborne Chardonnay famous, being the ex-Montana winemaker who brought into the being the once-famous "O" Chardonnay, which was originally a Gisborne wine sourced in Ormond. In a tribute to that super-rich yet elegant style of which he is the master, Steve's own label Spade Oak makes "The Prospect" from the same top quality Ormond Vineyards. Satisfying yet sophisticated, this classic Gizzy Chardy is a great deal at this price!

Its Origins

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

92/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Bright, fresh and focused chardonnay with white peach, citrus, nectarine, sizzled butter, vanilla and spicy oak flavours. Appealing purity and an impeccable balance, with a thread of fruity acidity driving a lengthy finish 05 SEP 2019." Drink 2019 - 2024
