REVIEWS

Bob Campbell, bobswinereviews, March 2013 93/100

Pure, punchy gooseberry, passion fruit and nectarine/tree fruit flavours offer a strong varietal and regional expression. The flavour profile appears to be a little riper than most from this cool Marlborough vintage. Very attractive wine that begs you to have a second glass ... and a third. 93/100
