Accolades

"Best of show (NZ Wine Showcase, Seattle). Lime, rock, tropical fruits, plenty of depth and detail."
Paul Gregutt, www.seattletimes.nwsource.com, 18 April 2007


"I like the wine's deceptively low-key introduction, which contrasts with its climatic finish. A ripe style with plenty of passionfruit, lemongrass and red-capsicum flavours."
Bob Campbell MW, Gourmet Traveller Wine, Dec/Jan 2007


"Showing a slightly oily richness, this is one of the driest wines in the Pioneer Block range. It's creamy-smooth with deliciously ripe, tropical-fruit flavours and a minerally thread."
Michael Cooper, John Belsham, Simon Waghorn, Cuisine January 2007
