Awards

4 STARS – Michael Cooper, Listener, 15-21 Oct 2016
“Sharply priced, this wine was estate grown at Rapaura and mostly handled in tanks, a small part of the blend was fermented in seasoned French oak casks. Aromatic and fleshy, it is sturdy (14.5% alc/vol), with strong, peach, spicy flavours, a vague hint of honey, a harmonious, dry finish and good personality. Drink now or cellar.”
89 POINTS - Cameron Douglas, camerondouglasms.blogspot.co.nz, Oct 2016
“Very fruity and engaging bouquet with peppery white fruits, white peach and nectarine, poached pears and apple. On the palate - juicy, fruity, fleshy and plush with a just dry finish showing a little residual sweetness; a custard flavour and texture adds some intrigue; medium acidity and a little more white spice.”
BRONZE – New Zealand Aromatic Wine Competition 2016, Oct 2016
