91/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion (2018 Vintage)
"Among the best Quarisa wine of this year's batch: polished and seamless, without the storm-trooping tannins and wrenching acidity of other cuvees. The fruit, too, is richly appointed without being OTT."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"The wine offers terrific dark fruit richness together with vanilla, roasted hazelnut, chocolate and mixed spice notes. It is succulent and powerfully expressed on the palate, delivering plump mouthfeel and silky texture, brilliantly supported by supple tannins. At its best: now to 2024".
Gold Medal NZIWS 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Dark and rich with blueberry jam, creamy oak, fragrant spice and subtle smoky notes, wonderfully framed by silky texture. Plump and richly textured with a powerful velvety finish."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Offering generous, easy, no-fuss drinking, this Aussie red has bold, purple-flushed colour. Rich and smooth-flowing, it is sturdy (14% alc/vol) and packed with fresh, ripe blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours."
