Awards, Reviews and other Notes

92 pts Wine Spectator Web Only - 2018
Velvety tannins set the stage for up-front, bright and tangy flavors of strawberry and cranberry. Details of talc, dried thyme and sage and black pepper emerge, lingering on the finish, with an air of elegance. Drink now through 2030. 80 cases imported.

94 pts Wine Enthusiast Nov 2018
Walking a tightrope of grace and power, this wine from Actor Sam Neill speaks of drying flowers, red currants, leather, olives and wild herbs. The palate has focus and tension, fine, powdery tannins, lifted acidity and a herbal tonic finish. It’s a delicious drop now but could see 10 years in the cellar. Drink through 2028. Editors’ Choice.

Winemaker Notes

Wild spice, violet, red fruits and some brooding whole bunch aromatics. Flowing on to a rich textural palate that shows great poise, elegance and density.
