"Bran flakes, smoke, tinned grapefruit, tangerine and jasmine. Light, tight and fine, spicy and kissed with oak, ripe lemon zing and juicy grapefruit segments, a little nectarine there too, but sparking with flint and bony charm, and a tense and cool finish of admirable length. Painting with watercolours, perhaps, but a significantly beautiful wine we have here. Love it." JUL 2017. 95+ points, Gary Walsh.
"Tangy and redolent of white peach, tangerine and nectarine out of the gates. Tensile, mineral-clad and tightly furled across its aft, reined in by a framework of high quality French oak and the oatmeal, truffled curd and reductive tension of extended lees handling. This wine will billow across its structural seams with age." JAN 2017 94 points Ned Goodwin
"Light to mid-straw colour, the bouquet fresh and oak-driven, with strong cashew nut aromas. The palate is bright and fresh and intense, with lively, slightly strident acidity. A quality wine but the acidity is a little prominent. A more straightforward wine that could benefit from a little more time." JUL 2017 93 points Huon Hooke.
