Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The grapes for this wine were sourced Peter Briant’s vineyard in the Patutahi region just across the river from Matawhero. The Chenin Blanc grapes are grown on Kaiti clay soil and, with the vines being young, we only had two canes laid down for the growing season. This resulted in low yields and ensured early ripening with nice ripe flavours. Citrus blossom, floral and orange zest notes. On the palate, lime, stonefruit and honeysuckle flavours with nice acidity."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 vintage was harvested from young vines at Patutahi. Light lemon/green, it is very fresh and lively, with strong, citrusy, appley flavours. Already delicious, it's a dryish style (5.2 grams/litre residual sugar), with moderate acidity for Chenin Blanc and excellent delicacy, poise and depth. Drink now or cellar."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2016 Vintage)
"It is great to see this classic grape continues to be made in New Zealand, and what a delightful example this is. Fragrant aromas of stone fruit, baked apple, spice and floral lead to a succulent palate that is beautifully weighted and richly textured. Wonderfully rounded and harmonious, and offers terrific drinking already. At its best: now to 2022."
