What The Critics Say
94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim
"The wine is beautifully lifted on the nose displaying dark plum, spiced cherry, game, hazelnut and clove characters. It is juicy and rounded on the palate, delivering excellent fruit weight and fine texture, brilliantly framed by polished tannins, which provide elegant firmness and length. A gorgeous expression offering terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2020. $45.00. www.wooingtree.co.nz. April 2018." Drink 2018 - 2020
5 Stars Michael Cooper
"This single-vineyard Cromwell red is typically classy. Retasted in April 2018, the 2014 vintage (5*) has full, bright, still-youthful colour. Likely to be long-lived, it is fragrant, savoury and supple, with generous, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent complexity, and a long finish. Best drinking mid-2019+."
18.5-/20 Raymond Chan
"Even, dark ruby-red colour with slight garnet hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly concentrated with a firm heart of dark-red cherry fruit entwined with subtle notes of dark and dried herbs, unveiling red florals, earth and nutty oak. The oak is aromatic Adding to the lift. Medium-full bodied the palate has sweetly luscious and bright dark-red cherry and berry fruit along with fragrant red florals, dark and fresh herbs. The fruit is complexed by subtle earthy detail and nutty oak, and supported by fine, grainy tannin extraction and structure. The acidity is poised and adds tension and energy, and the wine flows to an elegant, but firm and lingering finish of cherries, herbs and nutty oak. Match with pork, lamb, beef and venison over the next 6-7+ years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 115, 777 and Abel, fermented with 5% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 29% new French oak." Drink 2017 - 2025
