96pts James Halliday Top 100 "Barrel fermented in new and used French puncheons which contribute to both the flavour and texture of this very appealing wine. It's savory and dry, but the lemon zest and fruit flavours are the prime movers in showing what can be done event in a vintage that wasn't easy."

92pts James Suckling “A perfumed nose of gooseberries, passion fruit and jasmine. Medium-bodied with silky texture. Mineral backbone gives pleasant clarity and depth to the stone and tropical fruit. Dry and tasty. Drink now.”
96 James Halliday "It's complex, and in a lineage that will ensure the wine has a healthy life ahead.....Drink to 2030."
94 Gary Walsh "Guava, gooseberry, cut fennel, spice and juicy grapefruit. Smooth, slightly smoky, juicy feel to it, and savoury with green twigs and cheese, old pineapple, fresh though, with a long and spicy finish. Lovely wine. MR SB showing it's class."
95 HallidayGold 95 International Wine Challenge - London 95 Real Review “This is one of the better examples, from gifted winemaker Bruce Dukes. Retaining a youthful bright yellow hue. Snow peas, oak-toast, lemon essence and wheatgerm – lovely fresh nose. Oak is terrific. A creamy glide across the palate, lemon zest kicks in to give energy to the finish. Beautifully constructed. Faith in pristine fruit rewarded.” Nick Butler
