Reviews & Awards

Blend mainly from Bannockburn and Gibbston, with about one-fifth from Alexandra in the south of Central Otago. This is apparently winemaker Dean Shaw's idea of the perfect blend. Racy and mineral. Admirably fresh! Drinking 2023 - 2032
James Suckling
95 Points
Aromas of black berries, brambles and violets followed by kola nuts, cloves, and a touch of caramel and toasty notes. Medium-bodied, bright acidity with yet compressed tannins. Elegant and precisely framed wine. From organically grown grapes. Needs a couple of years to open. Screw cap.
