Accolades

"...Is fine fruity merlot from Marlborough with deep sweet-fruit flavour, poise and concentration, smooth fine tannin and a subtle under-pinning of oak."
Tim Harris, NZ Herald Canvas, 21 May 2005


"...It has elegance and warmth. A toasty, autumnal wine with nary a jammy note to be found. A toast to winemaker Matt Thomson."
Kate Fraser, The Press, 30 June 2005
