Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
'Sophia' is made from select parcels of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grown in the heart of our Gimblett Gravels Vineyard in Hawke's Bay. These parcels are farmed and vinified separately before selection and assemblage of the very best barriques for this prestige cuvee. 'Sophia' is a true expression of this great vineyard and the vintage. It is rich yet refined, very long flavoured and beautifully crafted. 
Will reward cellaring for a least a decade from vintage. 


Reviews for the 2021 vintage below…


5 Stars & 97/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, November 2023 (2021 Vintage)
"A blend of merlot and cabernet franc from the Gimblett Gravels district. Beautifully scented wine with intense cherry/berry, dark-fleshed plum, a suggestion of floral and spicy French oak flavours. Well-structured wine with gently mouthwatering acidity and an impressively lengthy finish. Should age well."


Rated Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, July 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"83% Merlot, 17% CF, separate blocks, 17 months in oak. Merlot with muscle and power, CF with finesse and charm. Delicious, ripe, fresh, aromatic. Great tannins, acidity and length. A wine that needs time, would love to see again in 2-3 years."


17.5/20 JancisRobinson.com (2021 Vintage)
"Purplish crimson. Very aromatic in a floral way. Gentle and sweet but not sickly. Much gentler texture than the average St-Émilion. Dry finish but powdery tannins on the end."
