Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Already delicious, this top-value Marlborough wine is fleshy, concentrated and complex, with a powerful presence. Very full-bodied, with strong, ripe melon and peach flavours, fresh acidity, mealy, biscuity notes and a creamy-smooth texture.
WINESTATE Volume 34 (2011)
Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
A powerful wine with deep, citrusy, appley, creamy flavours. The 2003 was estate-grown, hand-picked, fermented with indigenous yeasts and lees-aged for nine months in French oak casks (20 per cent new). Maturing very gracefully, it's a tightly structured wine with the citrusy, minerally notes typical of the Awatere Valley, mouthfilling body and excellent depth. The 2004 vintage is a 50/50 blend of Awatere Valley and Wairau Valley fruit. Fresh, lemony, slightly minerally aromas lead into a smooth palate with concentrated, citrusy flavours, a hint of butterscotch, and good richness and immediacy.
