Even better the second time around. Showing good weight and perfect balance of fruit, spice, and sandalwood. Quite complex and long - Punches well above its modest price tag. VGV

Commercially not good. The cost performance is too good. Can tell the personality of the responsible person.

Warmer vintage and the wine is more aromatically advanced than the 2014, riper fruit profile but still compellingly Burgundian.

Pretty compelling example of what can be done at a special site in Central Otago.

2013 not a patch on 2012. May need more time but at first blush not as rich, balanced, or textured as 2012. Same plum and cedar character, but sour cherry dominates the aftertaste.
