Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Aromas of nectarine and peach fruit flavours with hints of wet slate, matchstick, creaminess and savoury oak char. A full bodied wine with a creamy, supple texture displaying rich stonefruit and tropical fruit flavours and savoury elements. These persist on the long, bright finish."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"This is instantly appealing on the nose showing nectarine, rockmelon, brioche and toasted hazelnut characters with subtle flinty complexity. The palate is concentrated and beautifully rounded, and delivers fabulous fruit intensity together with stylish oak infusion, wonderfully complemented by creamy texture and well-integrated acidity, making the wine smooth, lingering and flavoursome. At its best: now to 2020."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 vintage is fresh and mouthfilling, with slightly creamy notes on the nose and palate. Still youthful, it has vibrant grapefruit-like flavours to the fore and well-integrated, biscuity oak adding complexity. Best drinking mid-2018+."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2016 Vintage)
"The colour is lustrous lemon gold, the tantalising bouquet conjures up toasty oak, gunsmoke, malt, nectarine and peach with some reductiveness noticeable and the taste is bold, toasty and mouthfilling with lashings of peaches and cream and a long rich savoury oak finish with lingering wheatmeal and woodsmoke."
