Reviews:

Gold Medal Bragato Wine Awards 2014

Gold Medal New Zealand Int. Wine Show 2014
Full-bodied, ripe, decadent and luscious with tingling pepper, coriander and ginger spices, a creamy texture and juicy ripe pear, peach and melon fruit with an infusion of tangelo. Alsace-like.

5 Stars Michael Cooper: An emerging classic. The 2014 vintage is a distinctly Alsace style – weighty, with a slightly oily richness. Delicious from the start, it is sturdy and gently sweet, with lovely depth of ripe peach, apricot, ginger and spice flavours, balanced acidity and a lengthy, harmonious finish. Great value.

Weather Conditions: A warm and dry spring allowed an early flowering and good pollination. January was fairly cool with regular rain ensuring the vine canopy remained lush green and working at its best. Two months of Nelson sunshine ripened our grapes beautifully leading to one of our best harvests so far.
