Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"A delicate aroma of green apple, citrus blossom and nougat. Hints of brioche, lemongrass and mineral characters add complexity. This vintage of Blanc de Blanc combines flavours of Tahitian lime, white flowers and sweet stonefruit notes. This handcrafted Blanc de Blancs is elegantly dry in style and exhibits a fine bead and a crisp finish."
92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Made with 100% Chardonnay the bouquet shows off enticing yeasty scents with baked white fleshed stone fruits, quiet citrus suggestions and an enticing complexity. Equally complex and definitely tasty on the palate with flavours that reflect the apple and stone fruits, a leesy toasty complexity, a fine and detailed structure with plenty of acidity and weight. A lovely wine, easy to taste and drink, balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2024."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"The 2015 vintage is a 'blanc de blancs' style, estate-grown and hand-picked in the Bridge Pa Triangle, Hawke's Bay. Partly barrel-fermented and closed with a crown seal, rather than a cork, it is light lemon/green, with a fragrant, citrusy, yeasty bouquet. Fresh, lemony, yeasty and dry (1 gram/litre of residual sugar), it is vivacious, with very good depth and complexity, and a smooth finish."
