Accolades

"Grown at Dillons Point, in the lower Wairau Valley, this mouthfilling, creamy-smooth wine has rich, stone-fruit flavours seasoned with toasty oak. An up-front style, but the exuberant use of oak is balanced against deliciously rich fruit flavours."
Michael Cooper's Best of 2008 Releases, Winestate Annual Edition, 2009
