Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Grown on the alluvial gravel soils of the Martinborough Terrace during an amazing growing season for the district. A classic warm dry summer allowed fruit to ripen perfectly producing opulent fruit flavours and great texture. Combined with barrel fermentation has allowed us to create Burgundian inspired Pinot Gris.

Flavours are reminiscent of ripe pears and white stone fruit with delightful soft texture ensuring a long commanding finish. A dry style has enhanced the fruit flavours Pinot Gris is renowned for. Partial malolactic fermentation and lees stirring has improved the texture and mouth feel allowing it to match most entrée dishes. A great alternative to Chardonnay it has been inspired by the classical French approach to the variety. It is an accurate reflection of Martinborough’s unique terroir. Cellar for up to five years or more, successfully.​"
94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"A stylish and complex rendition, the engaging bouquet shows baked apple and pear notes combined with dried flowers and spice, and savoury undertones. The palate is concentrated and impressively weighted, and delivers terrific power and volume, brilliantly framed by seamlessly integrated acidity. A gorgeous alternative style offering delectable flavours as well as intriguing savoury notes. At its best: now to 2019."
4 Stars Raymond Chan, November 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Bright, even, light straw-yellow colour with suggestions of blush and gold at the heart, pale edged. The bouquet is gently voluminous with lively and vibrant aromas of fresh white and yellow stonefruits harmoniously melded with delicate, savoury honeysuckle and yellow floral detail, secondary almond nutty nuances and hints of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is smooth and integrated with harmoniously presented flavours of yellow stonefruits, honeysuckle, florals and savoury, secondary nutty elements. The mouthfeel is balanced, showing an elegant richness and refined phenolic structure, and soft acidity provides a smooth flow. The wine carries to a gently rich finish of stonefruits, honeysuckle and nuts. This is a harmoniously integrated, smooth flowing dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit and honeysuckle flavours and some secondary, savoury nutty detail. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3 years. Fruit from the Martinborough Terrace, barrel-fermented to 14.0% alc. and 1.9 g/L RS, the wine seeing partial MLF and batonnage."
