Reviews and Ratings

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

Old Vines Pinot Blanc, perfumed with peaches, cream, orange blossoms, dried quince, light spice and clean mineral aromas on the nose. Barely dry with ripe pear, quince, white pepper and a lemon pudding finish lingering on the palate. Perfect for the patio, chill and enjoy on its own.

Produced from Old Vine Pinot Blanc sourced from Blocks 4 and 9 in the Golden Mile Bench Vineyard. Hand-harvested and lightly pressed, the individual blocks of wine juice were cool-fermented for 20 days in stainless steel, then blended together prior to bottling.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely and fresh, with notes of pear, peach and golden apple with hints of some warm spice. Dry, medium bodied and smooth, with medium acidity, and lovely ripe fruit on the palate. The finish is lengthy with some hints of warm spice and a touch of minerality. Enjoy this as a patio sipper or with white fish dishes.
