Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"The farm voice of a distinct parcel of land: Rippon. On the western board of Roy’s Bay, Lake Wanaka, Rippon’s north-facing escarpment forms the meeting point of terminal moraines and coarse gravels, all based in schist, on which some of the region’s earliest vines were planted. Rippon is a wine issued from all of the fully developed Pinot Noir vines growing in this land."


95/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"Beautiful perfume, floral, rosy, savoury-earthy-elemental scents with brambles and herbs rolled into ripe cherry, pomegranate. Just so lovely. A satisfying wash of pure fruit flavours in the palate, spiked with herbs, earth, savoury notes, just so effortless, and then the finish tightens up beautifully to a pucker. Formidable wine of beauty and verity."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"This Lake Wanaka red has a long, proud history. Estate-grown but not a single-block wine – winemaker Nick Mills views it as 'the farm voice' – it is typically a very elegant, 'feminine' style, rather than a blockbuster. Hand-picked from ungrafted vines planted between 1985 and 1991, the 2015 vintage was fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured in French oak barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. A wine with a powerful presence, it is deeply coloured, fragrant and weighty, with concentrated plum/spice flavours, savoury and structured. A very harmonious wine, it should be long-lived; open 2020+."
