Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"A delicate Pinot Gris with an intriguing array of flavours and a textural palate that lingers. Aromas of crisp red apple, quince and a hint of nougat. Apple, pear and nougat flow through the palate finishing with a touch of ginger and crisp acidity."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Bargain-priced, the 2017 vintage was grown in North Canterbury and made in a medium-dry style (6.6 grams/litre residual sugar). Fragrant, full-bodied and finely textured, it is vibrantly fruity, with generous peach and pear-like flavours, hints of spices and ginger, gentle acidity and a well-rounded finish. Best drinking mid-2018+."


4 Stars & 17.5-/20 Raymond Chan, December 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh with gently full aromas of yellow stonefruits with some floral notes, nutty elements and suggestions of honeysuckle and chalky minerals. This has good depth and presence. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has moderately deep flavours of savoury yellow stonefruits and subtle floral notes, with an amalgam of honeysuckle and minerals. The palate has a vigorous core with some underlying alcoholic drive and light phenolic textures, with bright acid liveliness. The wine flows with good linearity to an up-front finish of stonefruits, minerals and subtle honied nuances. This is an up-front, vigorous, dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, floral, honeysuckle and chalky mineral flavours on a light-textured, brisk palate. Match with Asian fare over the next 3 years. Fruit from the ‘Home’ block and ‘Deans’ vineyard, fermented in tank to 13.5% alc. and 6.6 g/L RS, the wine undergoing batonnage."
