Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
“A wide spectrum of aromatics from pear and white peach, citrus, quince and spice notes with an underlying minerality. These aromas are echoed on the palate, highlighted by crisp acidity and a long finish. The texture, freshness and concentrated aromatics mean that this wine will harmonise will with a wide range of dishes. Consider white meats, seafood and fish, the wine will also work well with mildly spiced dishes.”

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
“Estate-grown and hand-picked at two Bendigo sites, in the Cromwell Basin, the classy, attractively scented 2016 vintage is full of personality. Fermented with indigenous yeasts and made with some use of old oak, it is light lemon/green, mouthfilling, fresh and youthful. Fleshy, it is an off-dry style (11 grams/litre of residual sugar), with concentrated, ripe, peachy flavours, hints of apples and lychees, a slightly creamy texture, and a real sense of youthful drive. A subtle, complex wine with gentle acidity, it should be at its best mid-2018+.”

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2018 (2016 Vintage)
“Elegantly fragrant and complex, the bouquet shows ripe peach, poached pear and apple blossom aromas with a hint of brioche. The palate delivers lovely fruit richness and intensity, wonderfully enhanced by velvety mouthfeel and subtle savoury nuances. It is seamless and flowing to a splendidly long attractive finish. At its best: now to 2024.”

94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, March 2017 (2016 Vintage)
“Delicious bouquet oozing charm and elegance; soft, fleshy and spicy white fruits underpinned by minerality and concentration. An oily soft rounded texture on the nose also adds depth and intrigue. On the palate – creamy texture, oil moments and loaded with spice, minerality and flavours of red and white pear, citrus spice, white nectarine and perhaps a little older oak. A complex wine with some residual sugar and contrasting acidity; great balance and length. Drink now and through 2025.”

92/100 Jamie Goode, January 2018 (2016 Vintage)
“Bright and fresh and quite complex. Dry with some fresh spiciness and a linear, mineral, concentrated palate. Has a bit of smoke and spice as well as some pear and apple fruit. Long finish.”

Yvonne Lorkin, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
“Winemaker Paul Pujol has created an absolutely stunning pinot gris from fruit grown in their ‘schist-happens’ Rocky Point vineyard and the clay and chalk soils of their Home vineyard in Bendigo. Fermented using wild, indigenous yeasts and matured on its yeast lees, it has incredible freshness and purity, yet has a deep, smouldering complexity on the finish. Nashi, quince, Golden Delicious apples and hints of strudel spice make this glorious to gulp.”
