95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2015 Vintage)
"This alternative style is brilliantly composed and expressed. Grapes were hand picked and bunch pressed, and fermented in French oak barrels, then matured on full lees for ten months. The gloriously complex bouquet shows lemon peel, stone fruit, beeswax, toasted almond and brioche characters with a hint of lime zest lift. It is concentrated and powerful on the palate, and delivers layers of engaging flavours and fine texture, leading to a superbly long, fine finish. At its best: now to 2020."
4 Stars & 18.0/20 Raymond Chan, March 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"100% Sauvignon Blanc from the MacDonald family ‘Home’ vineyard, lower Wairau Valley, hand-picked, WBP and fully indigenous yeast barrel-fermented with full solids to 13.5% alc. and <2g/L RS, the wine aged 10 months in new and seasoned oak with batonnage, generally avoiding MLF. Bright straw-yellow colour with light green hues, lighter edged. The nose is elegantly presented with tightly bound and penetrating aromas of green stonefruits, greengages and nectarines entwined with notes of fresh herbs and complexing layers pf smoke, nuts and flint. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, this has a tightly concentrated and firm core of green stonefruits and nectarines interwoven with gooseberry, herb, spicy oak, smoke and flinty detail. The palate has a fine-textured phenolic line, and the mouthfeel is balanced by lively acid tension and energy enhancing the fruit sweetness. The wine carries to a long, juicy finish of green stonefruits, spice and smoke. This is an elegant and tightly concentrated oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with flavours of green stonefruits, spices and smoke, and a fresh, fine-textured palate. Serve with herb-marinated seafood and poultry over the next 3 years."
