Connie Russell rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I have been drinking a lot of New Zealand SB's lately, I think the Mud House is a terrific value from there. I found the G.B. a nice change, more earthy, herbal notes as apposed to the fruity of the other, I love everything I have tried from this house from their Rose to my favourite Gamekeeper red, At $13.95 I'm tempted to give it a 90!
Corinna Horton rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Had the good fortune to have someone fill my glass with the Graham Beck SV at a party and it made my head spin around. I chased down the bottle and was thrilled to find it so affordable. Mother Earth in liquid form; loamy, herbal... yet crisp.
The 2010] shows nettles, limes, with dusty pebble finish. Well judged, solid and elegantly balanced. Score – 3 1/2 Stars (out of 5) Source: Greg de Bruyn, Platter's South African Wine Guide

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
