Winery notes (2015 vintage)
"Pinot Noir, being one of the most difficult grapes to grow well, has shown on many occasions to be one of the varieties most suited to the soils and climate of the Waipara Valley, producing exceptional wines of elegance and style. This wine is no exception.  Hand harvested in perfect condition the grapes were sorted and destemmed before fermentation, then gently pressed before the resulting wine matured in seasoned French oak barrels. This Pinot Noir has a rich bouquet of ripe berryfruit and cherries with hints of earthy forest floor and mushrooms. The palate is elegantly well balanced with silky tannins and a lingering finish. Serve with Coq au vin or duck and roasted mushrooms."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Richly fruited and fragrant, the engaging bouquet shows dark cherry, smoked game, nutmeg and warm spice characters with subtle earthy mushroom complexity. The palate is concentrated and supple, and delivers lovely fruit intensity and silky texture, wonderfully framed by plenty of fine, polished tannins. At its best: now to 2021."


Yvonner Lorkin, November 2019 (2015 Vintage)
"Woah! Serious clove and star anise and sandalwood and all manner of crazy exotic spices erupt from the glass as soon as you pour this little Waipara wunderkind. It grips the gums with muscular gusto and finishes with some savoury kapow (technical term there).  Stephanie Henderson-Grant and her husband Andrew have been making wine here since 1995, so they know how to coax some champion flavours into each bottle."


Cameron Douglas MS, August 2018 (2015 vintage)
"Earthy, mineral, dusty and gently smoky bouquet. Dry, tense and youthful on the palate with firm tannins and acidity to match. A core of red berry fruit adds contrast to the youthful textures – cherry, plum and cranberry notes. Moderate+ ish length, persistent and consistent flavours and textures. Needs food for the moment, cellar time preferred. Best from 2020 through 2025."
