Critic Reviews

Huon Hooke

"Very light straw colour and a floral spicy aroma, coconut and peppermint, the wine is lively and fresh, intense and crisp, tangy and dry. The flavour is very intense and concentrated, penetrating and fresh, piercing and long, with great power and style. A wine which will improve with time." - Huon Hooke (huonhooke.com)

93Points
The Wine Front

"The fruit, the oak, the fluid mouthfeel, the way it flows seamlessly through the finish. You can’t help but be impressed. Grapefruit to the fore, spicy/toasty oak characters, a sprinkling of oatmeal and the flesh of white peach. It all teams, it all combines. And it all lingers." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
