Vino Fino Tasting (2105 Vintage)
"The Pioneer range of wines are small (tiny) batches of individual parcels made to reflect unique sites and only produced in the best vintages. From the Barnsley vineyard, the vines are meticulously tended. The grapes were picked around two weeks after the Estate Pinot Gris then fully barrel fermented. The very ripe, shrivelled (some with botrytis) grapes give a wine that has more sweetness (14.5 gms/rs and alcohol 14.5%) A full-on, luscious, Alsatian style."

4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"Late-picked, the 2015 vintage was fermented with indigenous yeasts in old French oak casks. Light lemon/green, it is scented and slightly honeyed, with mouthfilling body and an array of peach, pear, spice, lychee and honey flavours. An off-dry style (14 grams/litre of residual sugar), with good complexity, it should be at its best mid-2018+."

Sue Courtney,, February 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Light glossy gold hued with a hint of lychee, honey and citrus peel wafting from the glass. Flavoursome and concentrated in the palate with a soft, almost oily texture, poached pear and tropical fruit, a tickle of spice and a lingering suggestion of honey. Just off dry, it emulates Alsace and is almost verging on luscious. There’s a touch of oak that adds to the complexity of this wine."
