90% Pinot Gris & 10% Gewurztraminer
94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2015 (2015 Vintage)​
"What a fabulous drink. The inviting bouquet shows mango, peach and baked pear notes with nuances of apple blossom and spice. The palate delivers impressive fruit richness and silky texture, beautifully supported by subtle sweetness and layers of fabulous flavours. It is full-flavoured and friendly, and finishes superbly long. At its best: now to 2020."
5 Stars & 18.5-/20 Raymond Chan, September 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight golden hues, paler on rim. The nose is fresh and full with aroma of ripe yellow stonefruits interwoven with yellow and rose-petal floral, nuances of honeysuckle and flinty lees and minerals. The aromatics possess a soft density. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate shows good weight and depth, and strong presence of yellow stonefuits and lifted rose-petal florals. Nuances of honeysuckle and musk unfold and minerally lees detail adds interest. The flavours are mouthfilling and underlined by some alcoholic power and drive, with integrated acidity lending roundness to the palate. The wine carries to a fulsome, dry finish of stonefruits and florals. This medium-dry Pinot Gris has yellow stonefruit and rose-petal floral flavours on a fulsome, warm palate. Match with Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine over the next 3-4 years. A field blend of 90% Pinot Gris and 10% Gewurztraminer fermented in stainless-steel to 14.5% alc. and 9 g/L RS, the wine aged 4 months on lees with batonnage."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)​
"From two sites at Bannockburn, the powerful, age-worthy 2015 vintage is sturdy (14.5 per cent alcohol), with strong, peachy, citrusy, spicy flavours and an off-dry, creamy-textured finish."
