‘Light straw-green, very much a child of the vintage, with the chalky acidity of the variety magnified by the growing conditions; however, it is nigh-on certain this wine will develop superbly over the next decade plus.  Drink to 2025.  93 points

James Halliday, Wine Companion 2012

 

‘A handy dry white that marries lovely fruit purity and concentration with subtle winemaking overlay to great success. The aromas are of stone fruits, beeswax and lemon citrus, some baking spices and creamy, fresh bready notes too. The palate is lithe and juicy; acidity works away below rich fleshy fruit to create terrific balance and length here, lightly creamy buttered peach and melon, and a long finish of fresh almond and flowers. 93 points

Nick Stock, Good Wine Guide 2013

 

'It's a pleasing and sophisticated wine – savoury, richly textured (but not fat) and underpinned by a gently, citrusy varietal flavour, subtly meshed with a pleasing character derived from barrel ageing on yeast lees. The slightly fuller and rounder (but now sold out 2010) indicates benefits from bottle ageing – and that this could be a slow and graceful evolution. McKay says both wines underwent full malo-lactic fermentation, adding texture, and the 2011 contains a splash each of viognier and roussanne.'’

'The key to this wine is its restraint. Given the length of flavour and texture, this is an extraordinary example of marsanne.'
