4.5 STARS – 2016 Buyers Guide to New Zealand Wines
Wine Writer – Michael Cooper
Full-coloured, it is youthful, but already drinking well, with mouth-filling body, vibrant, ripe blackcurrant and plum flavours, showing good concentration, well-integrated oak, finely balanced tannins and good potential.

95/100 – The Real Review
Bob Campbell – Master of Wine
A deep and aromatic red from a top Hawke’s Bay vintage. Seamless, linear, fine-grained wine with floral, violet, dark berry, anise and spicy oak flavours. A seductively elegant and appealing red that can be enjoyed now but promises to develop well with bottle age.

5 STARS – 2016 Buyers Guide to New Zealand Wines
Wine Writer – Michael Cooper
The very elegant, Bordeaux-like full and youthful in colour, it’s a notably savoury and supple, full-bodied wine with concentrated, well-ripened blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, oak complexity, and fine-grained tannins. Already delicious, it should be at its best from 2017 onwards.
