Estate-grown at an inland site in the Dartmoor Valley of Hawke’s Bay. Highly aromatic, it is weighty, with punchy, ripe tropical fruit flavours, crisp and zesty, a slightly minerally streak and a long, dry finish. Notably fresh, vibrant and intense, it’s a top buy. The 2010 is mouthfilling, tight and very youthful with fresh, zingy melon/lime flavours, crisp, dry and lingering. Best drinking mid- 2011+ Rating 4 Stars - Michael Cooper, Buyer's Guide to New Zealand's Wines 2011
