"This is stunning; the intensely aromatic bouquet shows passionfruit, feijoa, Granny Smith apple and lemon zest characters. It's equally impressive on the palate, delivering excellent fruit concentration and purity, wonderfully complemented by fine texture and bright acidity, finishing gorgeously long and delicious. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2020

"Bright, even throughout, pale yellow with a slightly green hue. The nose is fresh with intense aromas of passionfruit, gooseberries and lime melded with beautifully scented elderflower, green herbs and a soft dusting of white pepper. Medium-light bodied, the palate is lush with some weight, presenting elderflower, honeyed aromas along with ripened passionfruit, cassis and lime; unveiling subtle spices. The taste is fresh with a softness; oily texture integrated with a chalky mouthfeel. Acidity is the main drive and flows, with good energy to a lingering refreshing finish. This is a lively, dry white with intense aromas of classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, with layers of interest and honeyed round edges. Match with shellfish and grilled fish over the next 3-5 years. Fruit from two vineyards in Dillon's Point, fermented in a combination of stainless steel, seasoned barriques and puncheons to 12.5%alc, 1.9g/l RS" Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, Jun 2020

"The highly aromatic 2019 vintage was grown in the Dillons Point district and handled in a mix of stainless steel tanks and seasoned oak casks. Fresh and punchy, it is medium-bodied, with good intensity of tropical fruit and herbaceous flavours, a gentle oak influence adding complexity and a dry (1.9 grams/litre residual sugar), crisp finish" Buyer's Guide Edition 2020

"Vibrant, intense, varietal, fruity and distinctive bouquet. Aromas of red apple and fresh herb, pineapple and peach, fresh herbs and sweet hay. A touch of fruit spice and recognisable stony mineral layer. On the palate - equally vibrant and refreshing with sweet acidity, ripe fruit flavours, fresh herbs, lemon and white flowers. A lovely wine with a silky texture and core of fruit" Cameron Douglas, MS, Mar 2020

Light straw colour in the glass. Intense and complex aromas of lime zest, nettle and smokey cordite. Round and rich with notes of grapefruit, passionfruit and subtle minerality with a long finish. Drinking beautifully from release and will continue to develop complexity over the next three to five years.

Food Pairing: An ideal match with Marlborough's Green Lip mussels, seared paua or a delicate goat's cheese salad.

This is stunningly attractive; the inviting bouquet shows nectarine, fig, lemon peel, vanilla and roasted cashew characters, followed by a concentrated palate that is wonderfully weighted and flavoursome. The wine offers impressive complexity and multi-layered mouthfeel, finishing impressively long and delectable. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2019

"Still youthful, the 2018 vintage (4.5*) was grown principally in the Ure Valley, south of the Awatere Valley, and fermented in French oak barriques (just over 50 per cent new.) Bright, light lemon/green, it shows obvious potential, with fresh, strong, grapefruit-like flavours, gently seasoned with toasty oak, lively acidity, and very good intensity, vigour and complexity. Fine value" Michael Cooper

A deep gold colour in the glass, with vibrant aromas of hints of vanilla spice and freshly picked figs. A textured and rich Chardonnay showing notes of ripe fig, vanilla spice and crème brûlée. Subtle hints of ginger and cardamom lead to a long, toasty finish.

Food Pairing: Excellently paired with a creamy risotto topped with Parmesan and crushed pine nuts.

"Sweetly fruited and seductively complex, the wine shows spiced cherry, dark plum, cured meat and olive characters on the nose. It's equally attractive on the palate, offering lovely weight and rounded mouthfeel, wonderfully complemented by silken texture and polished tannins, finishing long and delightfully savoury. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Apr 2020

"Bright, light ruby-red with some depth, lighter on edge. The bouquet is fragranced with depth, exhibiting fresh red berries, red cherries, an amalgam of spices lifted with floral, along with savoury earth and gamey notes. Medium-bodied, the palate is fresh with well-defined layers of aromas, red berries and cherries with a deep fragranced floral scent; along with aromatic oak spices underlying earth and gamey notes. The mouthfeel is soft and delicate; lacy acidity interweaved with a fine line of grainy tannin extraction, leaves a silky sustained finish. This is a pretty, delicate Pinot Noir with flavours of red fruit and floral complexity, along with spices, earthy and gamey elements flow with silky tannin and lacy acidity. Match with crispy duck and gamefowl over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from Wairau Valley, 115 Dijon clone, 10% whole bunches, fermented to 13.5% alc. Aged in Frech oak barriques for 10 months, 30% new" Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, Jun 2020

"Light and quite savoury Pinot Noir with red cherry, toast, dried herb, grape stems and smoky oak flavours. Delicate sweet fruit is balanced by fine and slightly stemmy tannins to give a dry finish" Bob Campbel, Master of Wine, Real Review, Sep 2019

"The 2018 vintage (4.5*) was matured for 10 months in old French oak barriques.  Fragrant and supple, it is ruby hued,  sweet-fruited and savoury, with youthful cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, showing good concentration and complexity. Best drinking 2021+" Michael Cooper

"Tart edged with cranberry, cherry and metallic/mineral edging" Joe Wadsack, Panel Chair and Tim Atkin, Master of Wine, Co-Chair, International Wine Challenge 2020

"Really nice bouquet of Pinot Noir with an immediate sense of pinosity from fruit then spice then soil. Aromas of red berries and roses, plum and light brown baking spice and stony, dry stone mineral layer. Harmonious and inviting. On the palate - youthful, fresh, varietal and tense with chalk-dust textures of tannin, medium+ acidity and fruit flavours that reflect the nose. Youthful still, nice weight and tension, balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2023" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier

Garnet red colour in the glass. Ripe red fruits, with a hint of toast and cedar. A full bodied, ripe and round palate palate, showing juicy red currants, red cherry and dried spicy fruits. A silky structure with toasted oak on the finish.
