Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Light golden in colour with a nose rich in nutmeg, pear and peach with hints of cream. Exhibiting considerable weight with ripe nectarine, peach and baking spices, the palate stretches out with fine chalky tannins and fresh fruit-laden acidity.  Drinking beautifully now or cellar up to five years."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"At its best, this is one of the finest Pinot Gris in the country. Estate-grown, it is mostly handled in tanks; a small portion of the blend is fermented with indigenous yeasts in old oak barriques. The delicious 2016 vintage is a richly scented, mouthfilling (13.5 per cent alcohol), distinctly Alsace-style wine, off-dry in style (10 grams/litre of residual sugar), with rich, ripe stonefruit and spice flavours, showing good complexity, a slightly oily texture, and lovely harmony and depth. Drink now or cellar."
5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, May 2017 (2016 Vintage)​
"Flavoursome pinot gris with fresh apple and pear flavours plus a seasoning of spice, anise, cloves and a suggestion of bready yeast lees. Perfectly balanced wine in an off-dry style with good purity and power."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, April 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour with pale lemon-green hues, lighter edged. This has a fresh, full nose of white stonefruits along with white florals harmoniously layered with a subtle amalgam of nuts and minerals. The nose is fresh and expressed with clarity and focus. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly concentrated with a core of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with subtle lees and mineral elements. The wine flows with good energy and slipperiness along a fine, smooth, seamless line, and carries to a long, elegant, lingering finish with nuances of minerals and stonefruits. This is an elegantly concentrated, dryish Pinot Gris with refined stonefruit and floral notes along with complexing nutty lees and minerals on a smooth, slippery and lively flowing palate. Serve with mildly spicy Asian and Middle Eastern fare and most white meat courses over the next 4+ years. Clones 2/15 and 2/21 from calcareous clay soils, fermented with wild and organic yeasts in stainless-steel with 5% in seasoned barriques to 13.5% alc. and 10 g/L RS, the wine spending 6 months on lees, the tank portion undergoing batonnage. 564 cases made."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"A gorgeous expression of the variety, the fragrant bouquet shows ripe stone fruit, poached pear, rockmelon and subtle spice characters. The palate is concentrated and mouthfilling, and offers excellent fruit purity together with silky texture and rounded mouthfeel. There is a hint of sweetness which is brilliantly framed by juicy acidity, making the wine superbly balanced and immensely delicious. At its best: now to 2020."
92/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2016 Vintage)
"​Attractive bouquet of Gris with a mix of wild white florals, honeysuckle, yellow apple, pear and spicy pear skin. On the palate - just off-dry with a little sweetness; fleshy, juicy, crisp and dry; flavours of white fleshed peach and nectarine with a lemon twist and spice; medium+ acidity, moderate weight and lengthy finish. A lovely example - drink now and through 2022."
Yvonne Lorkin, June 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​If you’re a fan of pinot gris that feels luxuriously rich, plump and plush on the palate, yet finishes with a crisp, chalky-dry texture – then this is right up your cul de sac. Grown using chemical-free, natural viticulture techniques and carefully coaxed into the bottle by Dominic Maxwell and his talented team, this baked apple and quince-scented, spice-fest of a wine is generously fruity, luscious and lovely to drink."
