Our Fabulous Fifty, The Wine Merchant NZ Supplement:
"A Pinot that won over the judge's thanks to its classic New Zealand style" with "lots of succulent fruit. It's so bright with good structure, but what is even more impressive is the price, which is very good for a wine of this quality from Central Otago."
"Light crimson. Juicy dark-red fruits, almost more beaujolais cru than Pinot! Light, finely textured and rather elegant. Unforced and very fresh on the finish." Julia Harding MW.
