Our Pinot Noir has an elegant, silky texture with an array of black fruits & secondary game flavours. Well integrated oak provides sappy, spicy complexity & aids the tannin structure.

> SILVER - NZ Int. Wine Show
> SILVER - Int. Cool Climate
> SILVER - China CWSA 2014

A dryer style with a delicate array of aromatic flavours reminiscent of preserved pears, quince and ripe stone fruits.  The palate is full and rich with soft acidity and a long finish.

A medium-bodied wine with a harmonious palate showing baked apples, almonds and a subtle spice. It has a finely balanced acidity that lends to the clean, lengthy finish.

> GOLD - Canberra International Riesling Challenge
Fresh-flavoured and light-bodied with a racy acid length and an off-dry finish. Flavours of lemon/lime, delicate florals and green apple are to the fore with hints of ginger spice. Great with food but also makes an ideal aperitif.

SILVER - Easter Show Wine Awards
Rich and full-bodied, bursting with classic varietal aromas of Turkish delight, fresh lychee and rose petal.  The residual sugar and muted acidity adds to the wine’s luscious textural qualities.

> PURE SILVER - Air New Zealand
Delicate crushed strawberry and sweet cherry fruit flavours with refreshing watermelon and cream soda notes. The palate is soft and plush supporting delicate berry fruit aromatics and creamy complexities, with a long, clean acid finish. 

> 4.5 STARS - Winestate Magazine
> PURE SILVER - Air New Zealand
> SILVER - Marlborough Wine Show

A luscious indulgence.  Complex aromas of citrus, lime and beeswax notes, layered with concentrated honey and dried fruit on the palate.  A great accompaniment for rich soft cheeses and sweet desserts.
