Expert Reviews

The instantly appealing 2013 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown and hand-picked at Pisa, in the Cromwell Basin, and mostly fermented and lees-aged in tanks; 30 per cent of the blend was fermented with indigenous yeasts in large, seasoned French oak barrels. One of the best releases yet under this label, it is a refined wine, scented, mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity, with excellent depth of peach, lychee, pear and spice flavours, a sliver of sweetness (9 grams/litre of residual sugar) and a lingering finish. 4.5 Stars - Michael Cooper, May 2014

30% fermented in large French barrels. Tasting well, just off dry and well rounded with a softness to the fruit which is immediately appealing. Good on its own or with early white meat or fish courses. Good varietal statement. Enjoy from now into 2017. Peter Saunders, WineNZ Magazine, May 2014
