Most definitely the Queen of the Chardonnays, even mum says this is her pick when she wants a good night out on the tiles. But don't let that scare ya. We really set out to make the very best Chardonnay we could from our very best fruit, made the good old fashioned way. This is a totally badass Chardy - definitely made for Chardy fans.

Golden and vibrant in the glass, the wine is full bodied with great texture and weight from the ripe fruit and beautifully supported by the use of toasty oak. Dry and finishing long this well balanced and attractive wine combines the best of ripe Marlborough fruit with complexity and weight from the barrel

The Fifth Innings

When a professional cricketer reaches their 'Fifth Innings' it is said that they hang up their helmet and head to the smoko room for the metaphorical aftermatch 'drink'. Trouble is, that 'drink' may drag on for eternity.

So it should also be mentioned that our flagship wine serves as an homage to Mister Misty Cove's former professional cricketing days and now into 'The Fifth Innings' of making fine wine. And in his own words: “I am extremely proud of this very age-worthy wine, its our ultimate expression of Marlborough Chardonnay – it’s extremely exclusive for the ultimate wine lover!”

"Immensely complex and engaging, the wine shows grilled peach, nougat, lemon peel and roasted hazelnut characters with a hint of brioche on the nose. It's equally impressive on the palate exhibiting outstanding concentration and multi-layered mouthfeel, finishing superbly long and gratifying. At its best: now to 2028"

It’s equally gratifying on the palate, exhibiting outstanding weight and richness, while remaining balanced and harmonious. Splendidly delicious. At its best: now to 2026."
