Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Hester Creek Estate Winery’s 2019 Character White blend of 53% Pinot Gris and 47% Gewurztraminer has a lovely balance to it. Fragrant with fresh white flowers, ripe pear, apple and lychee aromas on the nose. Off-dry, medium-bodied and vibrant with fresh pear, ripe peach, honeyed apricot and a lingering flinty mineral, crisp finish. Chill and enjoy with freshly-steamed shellfish or a vegetarian pizza topped with Feta cheese.

The grapes for this vintage were sourced from the winery's estate vineyards and Sage Hill Vineyard on the Golden Mile Bench. Grapes were destemmed and whole-berry pressed resulting in a clean fermentation of the juice. Each wine juice was cold-settled, racked, fermented with select yeasts and then blended over a period of five months to obtain the right flavour profile for this juicy white blend. Tasted July 2020.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
