98 Points - James Halliday "A special cellar release wine. Luminous green-gold, the bouquet and palate an exercise in harmony. Meyer lemon and lime flavours lead the journey, hints of lightly browned toast in the background. The acidity is essential, but it is likewise simply part of the team."
Only 120 cases produced.
96 Points - James Halliday "Excellent colour and clarity; although only medium bodied, has considerable intensity and complexity, with rippling red and black fruits, and fine tannins on the long finish; the acidity, too, is perfect."
93 Points - James Suckling
This shows plenty of wet earth and blueberry and black-olive character. Full body, fine and round tannins and a juicy finish. Hot stones and gravel. Intense. Yes. Drink now or hold.
90 Points - Neal Martin
The 2015 La Chenade, which was so impressive from barrel, has retained that gorgeous, pure bouquet that is floral in style, still with that candied tincture. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent red berry fruit, touches of Early Grey and a sweet, candied finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. Just plain delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2019 - 2027.

96 Points - James Halliday "Gleaming straw-green; in the year of its birth the wine received 94 points (Sept), and, as anticipated, has developed superbly. Even now, its laser-like citrus fruit and echoes of honey has years to go, building yet greater complexity along the way."
