Awards and reviews

  • 2011 Vintage 87.5 pts Markus del Monego and Andreas Larsson – Tasted Journal,  June 2013.
  • 2011 Vintage 89 pts Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar,  August 2013.
  • 2012 Vintage ‘Pale yellow.  Oyster shell and flinty minerality dominate the nose; less fruity than the 2013 version. Very rich and ripe, in fact almost oily, but closed today, with the fruit in the deep background. Most impressive now on the long, dry, tactile finish.’ 90 pts. Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar,  August 2014.
  • 2012 Vintage ‘……scents of grapefruit and dried orange peel reveal commendable detail.  The palate is very well-balanced and harmonious………nicely poised and as fresh as a daisy on the finish.  Drink now – 2019.  89 pts Robert Parker,  August 2014.
  • 2012 Vintage ‘ Lean and taut, this white offers yellow plum, green apple and lanolin flavours, showing intensity and concentration, with a long finish.  Drink now – 2021.  90 pts  Wine Spectator,  August 2014.
