Gold Medal & 95/100 – New World Wine Awards 2020
Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"It is a dark plum colour with dark berry and ripe cherry aromas. The palate is round and generous with medium tannins and well-balanced acidity. Some black pepper spices add to the complexity of the wine."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Charming and immediately appealing, the fragrant bouquet shows dark cherry, cake spice, vanilla, hazelnut and earthy mushroom notes, leading to a succulent palate that's fleshy and lingering. It's upfront and flavoursome with delectable fruit flavours together with attractive savoury undertones. At its best: now to 2023."
NWWA 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"From a small winery in North Canterbury operated by a father and daughter team, this is a wine that pairs perfectly with the local lamb. Try a slow roasted shoulder of lamb served with a fresh green salad. Sweet ripe fruit, spicy tannins and a nice savoury mushroom character with great concentration of flavour yet still delicate. Engaging length of flavour with a rich textural finish."
