Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Partial wild fermentation and subsequent oak maturation have been wholly responsible for the left-field style, although this approach is being used by an increasing number of Australian winemakers to combat the Marlborough tsunami. Here it works well, giving an almost creamy texture to the wine without obscuring the predominantly citrus fruit, which provides all-important freshness and zest to the finish.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Fermented in a mixture of 5-year-old Hungarian oak hogsheads, new to 2-year-old French oak and partial wild yeast fermentation are the cornerstones of this wine, together with carefully handled fruit picked when it was flavour-ripe. It is at once structured and savoury, yet vibrantly fresh, with texture a high point.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Very successful use of partial wild yeast barrel fermentation in older oak to balance the fresh grassy components, and allow the riper fruit to express itself on the finish and aftertaste.
