90 Points. "med after some local rapids, this is (again) one of the best of the second tier bottlings. Bright, expressive fruit and lifted aromas, plenty of cherry flavour and finely honed tannins. Approachable and balanced for immediate appeal." Wine Business Monthly (Australia), September 2008
4 Stars. "Central Otago red with bold, youthful colour and an enticingly floral bouquet. Smooth and packed with plummy, spicy flavour in an exuberantly fruity style; delicious young." Winestate (Australia), July 08
Winery Tasting Notes
This wine exhibits a lovely mix of red and black berry fruits with further complexity gained from oak spice. The wine has a sweet berry entry which displays these same characters in abundance. Tannins rise gracefully out of the mid-palate to finish the wine; these are balanced by the wine’s acidity and fruit, to produce a long fruit driven finish.
