Silver Medal Bragato Wine Awards 2017

4 Stars Michael Cooper
A consistently attractive wine. Pale and mouthfilling, it is a medium-dry style with youthful, vibrant pear, lychee and spice flavours, showing excellent freshness, delicacy and depth.
Best drinking 2018+.

4 ½ Stars Neil Hodgson, Nelson Mail 22 Nov 2017
Oily and textural in the mouth, the wine is simply packed with flavour but isn’t too heavy, rather it is opulent without being cloying and has lovely acidity in the very long finish. Perfect with any dish that has a little spice.

Weather Conditions: Spring and early summer were hot and extremely dry. Much needed rain came in December and January promoting a vibrant and
healthy canopy.

After a warm summer we received more rain just a few days before harvest. Luckily the fine weather returned – and with the help of our amazing picking team we managed to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.
