    Michael Cooper's Buyers Guide to New Zealand Wines 2012

    Fine value. The 2010 vintage (****) is fleshy, sweet-fruited and harmonious, with good intensity of fresh, ripe tropical-fruit flavours and a dry, rounded, lingering finish.

    Winestate Magazine, Wine of the Year 2010 Edition, Top 5 & 41/2 stars

    Pale straw in colour with green hues. Bouquet of passionfruit, crushed herb, nettle, capsicum and citrus fruits. Punchy aromas in the tropical end of the spectrum with bright, green lime notes. Lovely zesty palate; rich structure with loads of tropical fruit flavours and a sorbet-like finish. Complex with great intensity, refreshing acidity and a lingering finish., Bob Campbell, Master of Wine

    Pure yet flavoursome wine with gentle tangy passion fruit, lemon grass and red capsicum flavours. Elegant rather than blockbuster style with energy and drive.

    Concentrated, tangy wine with gooseberry, cut grass, lemon grass, tree fruits and a hint of passion fruit. Richly textured wine with power and a lengthy finish.
    5 Stars 93/100
