Bob Campbell of The Real Review gave 91 points and 4 stars.
"Weighty pinot gris with Gala apple, poached pear and citrus flavours. A clever balance of sweetness with tangy acidity leaves a pleasantly drying and moderately lengthy finish. Terrific buying at this price."
Michael Cooper gave 4 stars in his article 'This year's top pinot gris picks from New Zealand' published in the October 13, 2018 issue of the New Zealand Listener.
"Bargain-priced, this is a full-bodied (13% alc/vol), fresh wine with pear, peach, lychee and spice flavours, showing good varietal character. An off-dry style, it is attractively scented with excellent delicacy and vibrancy."
The Sunday Telegraph, 28th October 2018 - "WHILE New Zealand's Marlborough region is far better known for its gobsmacking sauvignon blancs, pinot gris is seriously making up ground in the wine stakes. This inviting drop is crammed with refreshing spicy flavours, distinctive apple-pear nuances. A most welcome import."
