86 Points - Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, Feb 21
Bright, salmon-pink, even colour throughout. The nose is soft and bright, nuances of field strawberries, stonefruit, lemon melded with rose petals and a white spice hint. Medium-light bodied, dry to taste, aromas of field strawberries in focus, followed by lemon zest, stonefruit, a little white pepper and rose petals linger on the closing. The wine is refreshing with lively acidity balance, flow smoothly with a touch of creaminess to a cleansing, dry finish. Serve this as an aperitif and match with cold smoked salmon and cream fraiche over the next 2 years. A blend of Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer.

It's instantly appealing on the nose showing Gala apple, fig, nectarine and white floral aromas with a hint of sweet strawberry. The palate displays elegant weight and beautifully rounded mouthfeel combined with juicy fruit flavours and refreshing acidity, finishing long and delightfully tasty. At its best: now to 2022.

Fresh, ripe, fleshy, fruity and highly scented bouquet. Flavours of sweet strawberries, light red cherry, peach tea and a touch of grapefruit. Satin textures with a core of fruit and contrasting acidity. Fresh, lively, balanced and well made. Ready now for Summer 2021 and through to Summer 2022.
