90% Semillon & 10% Sauvignon Blanc, 182 g/L rs
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage)
"Currently on sale, the 2011 vintage is a striking Waipara, North Canterbury dessert wine, given lengthy barrel aging. Deep amber, with notable complexity on the nose and palate, it has substantial body (14.5 per cent alcohol), with super-rich peach and apricot flavours, an oily texture and a lush, raisiny, superbly sustained finish. A wine to ponder over."
5 Stars & 19.5/20 Raymond Chan, August 2014 (2011 Vintage)
"A second bottling of ‘Finale’ 2011, with 90% Semillon and 10% Sauvignon Blanc, fully botrytised and picked at 50° Brix, fully barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts to 14.5% alc. and 182 g/L RS, and TA 7.9 g/L, the wine aged 4 years in new and seasoned French oak barriques. Deep golden yellow colour with orange hues and lighter green-gold tints on the edge. The bouquet is full, bold and solidly concentrated with rich and ripe aromas of oranges and tropical fruits complexed by layers of marmalade, toffee, caramel and crystallised fruits. Nutty oak, ‘fly-tox’ and volatile acidity add to the interest and density of aromatics. Very, very sweet, the palate is full-bodied, rich and unctuously packed with decadent flavours of ripe citrus and tropical fruits, toffee and caramel. Layers of sweet, nutty oak and a little volatility are integral. The mouthfeel is smooth, rounded and unctuous with a dense, soft-textured core, the soft acidity adding to the opulence. The wine oozes to a long, lingering complex, hedonistic finish. This is a very rich, complex-layered decadent dessert wine with tropical fruit, toffee, caramel and nutty flavours. Serve with steamed puddings or instead of a liqueur, over the next 6-8 years."
94/100 Cameron Douglas, November 2015 (2011 Vintage)
"Deep golden hues and star bright appearance. Aromas of spice, beeswax and honeycomb; preserved apricots and peaches with citrus peel, very distinctive and packed with energy. On the palate - fantastic! Delicious, honeyed, oozing flavour and texture with huge sweetness equaled by acidity and richness; oak spices, citrus and stone fruit flavours, long finish."

"This striking Waipara, North Canterbury dessert wine is deep amber, with notable complexity on the nose and palate. It has substantial body, with super-rich peach and apricot flavours, an oily texture and a lush, raisiny, superbly sustained finish. A wine to ponder over."
Yvonne Lorkin, January 2016 (2011 Vintage)
"Wow! I love the amber-topaz colour of this glossy dessert wine. It smells like honey drizzled over oatcakes and there's an exotic toffee note cloaking baked stonefruit and an intense sweetness encasing a monster 14.5 per cent alcohol. Wild yeast fermented and ageing for two years in barrel has created an un-put-downably delicious wine with a squeak of apricot and caramelised cinnamon sugar on crumpets. Dangerously good."
