What the critics say:

 

95 Points | Vinous, Rebecca Gibb MW

A finely poised yet powerful Chardonnay that has just the right amount of reductive flint character, adding a layer of complexity to this savory, stylish wine. Wild fermentation in oak puncheons followed by an extended period on lees has resulted in rounded edges while adding smoky and nutty flavors. It has lovely sinew on the long finish.

 

95 Points | Real Review, Bob Campbell

Impressive purity and power with peach, nectarine fruit flavours together with a subtle struck-flint mineral, reductive character and a pleasing savoury note. A taut, elegant chardonnay that’s good now but promises to get even better with bottle age.

Blank Canvas

"one of the most exciting labels to come out of Marlborough in the past decade."

- Rebecca Gibb MW | Vinous

Founded in 2013 by award-winning international winemaking consultant Matt Thomson and New Zealand South Islands first ever Master of Wine Sophie Parker-Thomson MW, Blank Canvas very quickly made a name of themselves. The duo also happen to be a couple, sharing their love of both science and art. With over 40 years’ experience between them, the duo craft small batch artisanal wines from their home Marlborough and they have now expanded to have sites in Marlborough, Hawke's Bay and Central Otago. Their focus has always been on single vineyard expression reflecting individuality and character of the site.

The influence of their travels in Europe is evident in their wines. Elegance and restraint are words that come to mind when tasting their wines. The winemaking is natural but is clean cut without faults (wild fermentation and no filtration). The excellent texture and reductiveness of their Reed Chardonnay has been described as “very Coche Dury” in style by Julia Harding MW (JR), whilst their Element Syrah has the pepperiness more associated with Cote-Rotie in the Rhone valley than New Zealand. Their Pinot Noirs are likely to “turn your opinion of Marlborough Pinot Noir upside down” summarised Rebecca Gibb MW of Vinous.
