Reviews

Yvonne Lorkin, yvonnelorkin.com

"This is one of those super-easy, ‘drink it, don’t overthink it’ wines that ticks all the boxes for all those good things like passionfruit, peach, hints of fresh herb, capsicum and cut grass flavours. It’s definitely a sauvignon to savour now – don’t go stashing it away thinking it’s going to improve with age. Just pop a bottle in the fridge for an hour, pour and enjoy in the sun."

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
93/100

Lively, fragrant and inviting, the bouquet shows passionfruit, nectarine, red capsicum and lime zest aromas, followed by a succulent palate that is intensely flavoured and beautifully vibrant. It is lush and fruit expressive, and with a touch of musky complexity, making this a terrific drink. At its best: now to 2018.
