Awards & Reviews

Sydney International Wine Competition 2018 - Gold medal

Winestate - Wine of the Year Annual - Best of 2017 - Four and a half stars

$15.00 - $20.00 "An unashamed big flavoursome wine" commented one judge. It has intense lifted passionfruit esters and nice toasty pungency on the beautifully textured palate. The aromatics are big and punchy with lots of passionfruit, herbaceous and citrus notes. The palate is smooth and packed with a lovely intensity of flavour - passionfruit, citrus and more tropical fruit characters lead to an attractive herbaceous finish.Bright and refreshing - Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

North and South magazine - December 2017. - Four stars

Four stars - This is an aromatic lively wine, with melon and green-capsicum flavours, showing very good delicacy and length and a touch of complexity. Finely balanced, it's delicious from the start.
