"Hallmarks of the Wairarapa and Martinborough with a bouquet of silty mineral laden soils, dark berries and old strawberry compote. There’s also scents of moderate toasty barrel with vanilla and clove moments then a dark rose highlight. On the palate - youthful with a core of fruit and contrasting tannins, moderately firm textures and fine acid line with a fine silty soils and quietly savoury complexity. Well made, youthful and needing some cellar time. Great with food right now or best from late 2022 through 2028."

"Beautifully ripe and perfumed, showing Black Doris plum, raspberry, mixed spice and floral aromas, it's juicy and flavoursome on the palate delivering excellent fruit intensity backed by fine texture and polished tannins. Upfront and highly appealing. At its best: now to 2026."
- Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"Moderately concentrated pinot noir with bright cherry, plum, smoky oak, anise and subtle fresh herb flavours. An appealing wine, with a nice balance of acidity with fruit sweetness. Accessible but should develop well in bottle. Excellent value."
- Bob Campbell MW

"Offering excellent value, the 2020 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown at two sites (mostly young vines in the Blue Rock Vineyard), and oak-aged for 10 months. Bright ruby, it is mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity, with good density of berryish, plummy, spicy flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and ripe, supple tannins. Well worth cellaring, it should break into full stride 2023+."
- Michael Cooper

"A gorgeous perfume with great intensity. The nose shows attractive berry characters, roses, violets, strawberry lollies, with red liquorice, dark chocolate, and meaty elements. A dense, ripe, fleshy Pinot with genuine concentration, richness on the mid-palate and dense, sinewy, dusty tannins that linger. Enjoyable wine with weight and balance."
