Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Cocooned by mountains on all sides, the Waitaki Valley wine-growing region lies 40km inland from the Pacific Ocean on the southern flanks of the Waitaki River. Our warm north west sloping vineyard consists of ancient white limestone soils, inter-layered with river gravels,  allowing grapes to truly ripen in this southerly latitude.

A southern hemisphere twist on French Chablis. Fermented and aged in seasoned French oak barriques; it has a delicate fragrant bouquet of green apple and aromatic herbs, accompanied by nutty, toasted brioche undertones. A powerful weighty wine with refined citrus flavours and hints of ripe quince. Buttery and creamy on the palate with a strong “chalky” mineral backbone – Uniquely Waitaki!"

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"The youthful 2017 vintage was matured for 10 months in old oak barrels. Bright, light yellow/green, it is fresh and full-bodied, with strong, citrusy, peachy, distinctly buttery aromas and flavours, threaded with lively acidity, and good complexity. Best drinking mid-2020+. (From Forrest Estate.)"

90/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Restrained and elegant, the bouquet shows apple, grapefruit, nougat and hazelnut characters, leading to a succulent palate that is supple and creamy. It is gently weighted and focused with fine texture and bright acidity, finishing linear and complex. At its best: now to 2021."
