Gold Medal - New Zealand International Wine Show 2017
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"An outstanding offering from one of the country's most consistently excellent producers; the gloriously perfumed bouquet shows mango, lychee, Turkish Delight, potpourri and subtle spice aromas. The palate is succulent and concentrated, and offers velvety texture and creamy mouthfeel, wonderfully framed by perfectly pitched acidity. The wine is opulent and plush, while remaining brilliantly balanced and structured, and finishes impressively long and silky. At its best: now to 2026."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, July 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, even. Light golden-yellow colour, a little paler on the rim. The nose is gently full and voluminous with softly concentrated aromas of rose-petal florals, Turkish Delight, musk and savoury honey, and fresh, steely, root-ginger notes. This has excellent presence, balance and unfolds layers of detail. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has up-front and intense flavours of Turkish Delight, rose-petal florals, savoury honey and musk notes, entwined with root-ginger elements. The fruit forms an elegantly concentrated core, and the mouthfeel has richness and is near-unctuous. Fresh, lacy acidity underlines the fruit, and the wine flows smoothly along a fine phenolic line with a little alcoholic drive, leading to a rich, generous finish with a touch of balancing classical varietal bitterness. This is an elegantly concentrated medium-dry Gewurztraminer with an array of rich aromatic, musky flavours and complexing savoury root-ginger suggestions on a near-unctuous palate. Serve with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4+ years. Fruit from the Lower Wairau, fermented in tank to 14.0% alc. and 10 g/L RS."
