|Carla rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Enjoyed a really nice visit to the Reif Winery. So many beautiful wines. Their First Growth series intrigued me as it was based on the French "Premier Cru" the technique of hand picking select grapes from the first harvest.
"These wines showcase the 'terroir' of Reif Estate vineyards. The grapes are harvested from our oldest vineyard blocks in select vintages and the wines remain unfiltered after fermentation and oak aging to preserve maximum varietal characteristics and allow for extended cellaring. 'When you taste these wines we want you to taste the essence of the vineyards.'" (Reif tasting notes)
