    Sam Kim, Wine Orbit June 2011.

    'Excellent quality showing high level of concentration and balance. It's ripe and fragrant on the nose displaying red/black plum, spice, game and black pepper characters. The palate is succulent and generously flavoured with lovely mid palate weight and silky texture leading to a pleasantly drying finish. A well structured and varietally expressive Syrah......'.

    Michael Cooper, Buyer's Guide to NZ Wines 2011.

    'The 2008 vintage ...grown at Church Bay, on Waheke Island...is a distinctly savoury and earthy style with good density of blackcurrant and spice flavours and ripe, supple tannins'. Rated 'Excellent quality, Silver medal standard'.
