Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Very pretty and fragrant. Aromas of peach, white florals, lychee and honey. Just off-dry, with medium+ acidity, and lovely fresh citrus and orchard fruit on the palate. Texture is smooth with a clean, mineral finish. Enjoy with fresh summer salads with goat cheese, or a smoked salmon appetizer.
Deborah Podurgiel Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Hester Creek’s Character white is always so much fun and easy to understand. The 2020 vintage is no different. Produced from 65% Pinot Gris and 35 % Gewürztraminer sourced from vineyards near the winery including the winery’s Golden Mile Bench and Road 7 estates. Wine lots were cool fermented for about 31 days, then blended and aged in stainless-steel tanks for four months on fine lees.

Character White 2020 is juicy, off-dry and fragrant with rose petal, lychee, peaches and cream aromas, with tropical fruit, pineapple, mango and citrus zest flavours on the palate. From a banner year of abundant ripe fruit balanced with good acidity. Chill and enjoy with brunch fare or something as simple as herbed flatbread and goat cheese. Tasted March 2021.
