Subtle flavors. No stainless taste. Maybe some slight oak? — 6 months ago

Ripe but sophisticated bouquet. Strawberry stew, sweet plum, clove, tomato, sagebrush and underbrush. Less fruity, more mineral palate with flavours of raw meat, iron, underbrush and sagebrush. Wonderful and demanding wine that without proper attention can be easily underestimated. Very young.

Very good p/q. Reminds me of Giant Steps Applejack/Sexton. Clean red fruit, lavender, with a deeper spice note. There is Gibbston/Otago deep spice, then you get pure red strawberry. No discernible tannin, and acid is subdued, but at this pricepoint this is a buy. — 6 months ago
Classic Central Otago dark brooding character, but with more elegance than Gibbston Valley or Valli. The nose is all blue and black fruit, with a vein of cedar spice, Med-full bodied, complex, with a silky mouthfeel. Serious weight, but not heavy. A cross between the dark weight of Otago and a good Gevrey. Strong buy. — 7 months ago
Did the Creator touch this land and turn this bottling into wine?
Gods country & Jesus wine.
Perfect mouthfeel & purity, gorgeous, delicate, soft citrus, round, waxy, honeysuckle, amazing, perfect, beautiful chalkiness, elegant, grey minerality, some of the best acidity & incredible balance in a wine I’ve had. The finish is in the theatre of, “Forget About It.” WOTN.
Very Burgundian and better than many I’ve enjoyed for less💰.
Photos of, the harvest time view of the valley floor from the property, open top fermenting Pinot Noir grapes, my property walk & talking w/owner Nigel Greening (amazing time with an amazing person/producer and outside concrete tanks...it’s an even warm to cool growing season that translates into a long fruit hang-time, amazing fruit & acidity.
