Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Complex aromatics showing with a long finish and persistence of prominent flinty minerality, crisp Granny Smith apple and savoury. Medium plus bodied, refreshing mouthwatering acidity. Very low sulphite content. Great value. Pair with grilled chicken. Tasted 2015 vintage in May 2018. 92 points
The South Pacific ocean breeze produces a special delicacy of flavour in this aromatic, fruit-forward wine. Dry farmed mineral riverbed soils give a fine silt
loam texture and produce a dense, aromatic wine. Unoaked, natural yeast. Very versatile food wine

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.
