5 Stars Michael Cooper (2013 Vintage)
"​Estate-grown in the Waihopai Valley, the 2013 vintage was harvested from vines planted in 1999 and oak-fermented. Bright, light yellow/green, it's a powerful, Alsace-style wine, full of personality. Mouthfilling (14.5 per cent alcohol), it has lovely weight and richness of stone-fruit and spice flavours, with abundant sweetness, balanced acidity, good complexity, and a faintly honeyed, very harmonious finish. Delicious drinking now onwards."
5 Stars & 19.0-/20 Raymond Chan, November 2015 (2013 Vintage)
"Brilliant, light golden-hued straw-yellow colour. This has a full and concentrated bouquet of bright, lifted, aromatic yellow florals, ripe exotic pear and tropical fruits, and honey all harmoniously entwined. The fruit is fresh and high-toned with lush honied elements and vitality. Very sweet to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is rich and unctuous in texture with a rounded and dense core of ripe tropical fruit and pears, along with lifted yellow florals and honey. This has weight and density, the soft textures enhanced by low acidity. The alcohol is well-integrated and provides good drive and power. The wine flows positively to a plush, near opulent, long, lingering finish. This is a rich, medium-sweet Pinot Gris with rich and near opulent flavours of tropical fruits, pears and exotic, lifted florals. Match with spicy Middle Eastern and Asian fare, and with fruit desserts over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from the ‘Johnson Vineyard C Block’, hand-picked and fermented in oak to 14.5% alc. and 60 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months on lees."
