Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
Scented and poised, the 2009 vintage from Sacred Hill is a single-vineyard wine, grown in the Awatere Valley. Basically dry (4 grams/litre of residual sugar), it is medium-bodied, with strong lemon, lime and slight passionfruit flavours, showing good delicacy and freshness, and a long, tight but not austere finish. Fine value.

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
The vivacious 2007 vintage from Sacred Hill is a single-vineyard wine, grown in the Awatere Valley. Bright, light lemon/green, with fresh, punchy, ripe fruit aromas, it's a gently sweet style with fresh, vibrant peach, lemon and lime flavours. Excellent drinking for the summer of 2007-08.

Michael Cooper (2005 Vintage) says
The debut 2005 vintage replaces the Cairnbrae label in Sacred Hill's portfolio of brands. Fresh and smooth, it's a full-bodied wine with citrusy, appley, limey flavours, a splash of sweetness (11 grams/ litre of residual sugar) and refreshing acidity. It's not intense, but slips down very easily.
