"A beautifully perfumed nose of white and black pepper, wet stone, grilled meat, toasted rosemary and grilled plum. Medium-bodied with silky, fruit-soaked tannins. The palate takes off, displaying a incredible amount of spicy complexity. Pepper, paprika, clove, coriander. It keeps going. Tight structure keeps everything wonderfully in line. Layered, dynamic and delicious. Superb. Best from 2024. Screw cap.", Nick Stock

"Intense, powerful wine with blackcurrant compote, dark-fleshed plum, black pepper, anise and spicy oak flavours supported by sweet, ripe tannins. A supremely elegant wine that is accessible now but promises to reward cellaring. A Kiwi classic. 03 NOV 2022." Drink 2022 – 2040

"Due for release in November 2022 this wine is fantastic - with a bouquet of concentration and power, is very expressive with aromas of dark berries and field mushrooms, fruit and barrel spices, wood smoke and very youthful energy. Black currant and baked meats, mushroom and clove, dark fleshed raspberry, barrel spices and violets. Equally fantastic on the palate, very taut still, youthful and high energy with concentrated flavours of fruit and earth, wood and power. Tannins are ripe, polished, in abundance and layer in mouthfeel to an already impressive texture. The backbone of acidity contrasts the core fruit flavours adding length, shape and form. Delicious, new and cellar worthy. Best drinking likely from 2025 through 2040." Drink 2025 – 2040
