Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage) says
Full-bodied, dryish style, grown mostly in the Awatere Valley. Youthful, with strong, ripe apple, pear and spice flavours, showing lees-ageing complexity, fresh acidity and finely balanced finish. Best drinking 2014+.
May/June 2013
Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
Quite tightly bound on the nose, with crisp citrus, white peach and nectarine characters, as well as hints of nougat, marzipan and riverstone. Clean, stony acidity drives the wine along nicely, propelling it to a persistent finish showing great balance and appeal.

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Spicy pear nose and very citrussy palate that has good texture and a drying finish.
WINESTATE Volume 34 - Special Edition 2011
Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
In comparison with the other wines in this chapter, this is a more tightly wound pinot gris, showing some flinty citrus on the nose, grapefruit and lemon peel, and a little nectarine too. The palate packs impressive concentration and punch, brisk, crunchy pear flavours and a clean, almond-tinged finish.

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
The 2010 vintage was mostly estate-grown and hand-picked in the Awatere Valley, and made with a subtle oak influence (15 per cent fermented in old French barrels). It's an off-dry style (5.8 grams/Iitre of residual sugar), invitingly scented, full-bodied and well-rounded, with ripe pear, lychee and spice flavours, showing excellent delicacy and harmony. Worth cellaring.

Fermented in a mix of tanks and old oak casks (15 per cent), the 2005 vintage is weighty (14 per cent alcohol), harmonious, vibrantly fruity and smooth, with an array of citrus-fruit, pear and spice flavours and a slightly sweet (6 grams/litre of residual sugar) finis

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2001 is a mouthfilling wine with ripe pear and spice flavours and a smooth finish. The 2002 vintage , a blend of Awatere Valley and Wairau Valley grapes, was 20 per cent barrel-fermented and all of the wine was lees-aged for three months. Fresh and weighty (14 per cent alcohol), with ripe, lemony, spicy flavours and a crisp, slightly sweet (6.5 grams/litre of sugar), lingering finish, it should develop well during 2003-04.
