Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"This Winemakers Reserve blend is widely regarded as one of the finest of New Zealand’s red wines. The 2013 vintage is deeply coloured with aromatics hinting at black fruits including cherries, spice and smoke. The flavours typical of Gimblett Gravels Merlot blends tend toward fruitcake, cherry, chocolate and oak spice. Dry, complex and long finishing, this is a fine vintage for this blend."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2013 Vintage)
"This powerful, classy wine is typically one of Hawke's Bay's greatest reds. Grown in the company's Ngakirikiri Vineyard and the Cornerstone Vineyard, both in the Gimblett Gravels, it is matured for up to 20 months in French oak barriques (40 per cent new in 2013). The 2013 vintage is a a dark, youthful blend with a slightly minty fragrance. It has fresh, dense plum, spice and nutty oak flavours, showing excellent ripeness, concentration and complexity, and a long, softly textured finish."
97/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2013 Vintage)
"Pristine and pure fruit aromas of black/blueberry and dark plum are beautifully enhanced by nuances of mixed spice, cigar box and floral. The palate delivers outstanding intensity and concentration, backed by silky texture and fine, chalky tannins. Hugely promising. At its best: 2018 to 2033."
