Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"This wine is the first produced under this label. It comes from Gareth Renowden’s tiny, super close planted vineyard deep in the Waipara Gorge. It is an intriguing site. The soil is made up of limestone rocks and clay marl. It has high active lime through the profile.

The fruit is farmed naturally with no synthetic sprays. It is picked quite late as the site is amongst the coolest in North Canterbury. The combination of the lateness of this site and the beautiful active limestone soils creates a wine that  is delicate, saline, and other worldly.

The fruit is 100% destemmed to vat. Only indigenous yeasts are used. The fermentation is carried out over 6 weeks on skins. The extractions are very gentle in order to promote the ultra-delicate aromas this wine has. The wine is matured and undergoes natural malolactic in ancient hogsheads and is bottled unfined and unfiltered after the next vintage. 30 ppm SO2 Total.

This wine is aromatically very complex. The aromas are less about fruit but more about limestone, salinity and truffles. Very autumnal. The palate is lithe a layered.It will continue to unfold in the glass to give a hugely rewarding drinking experience."


95/100 Jamie Goode, November 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"From the Limestone Gorge vineyard with active lime in the clay/marl soils. There are two soils here: black soil with a small bit of green marl, and then straight into hard limestone; and small black soil with a metre of marl, pebbles and limestone. All in concrete. 20 ppm SO2. Sappy and leafy with perfumed cherry fruit on the nose. Lovely supple palate has a bit of grip and some supple green notes, as well as pepper notes. So expressive with lovely finesse and nice sapidity."
