5 STARS - Cuisine Magazine, Issue 185, Nov/Dec 2017
“Kiwi sparkling roses don't come much better than this, a personal favourite of Hunter's own grande dame, Jane Hunter. Bouquet garni, berryfruit scents lure you in; the palate is weighty and complex, rish with fresh baking characters and enlivened by persistent mousse.”
5 STARS - The Listener, Michael Cooper, 7 November 2017
“The classy wine currently on sale is mostly from 2011 base wine, blended from pinot noir (55%), chardonnay (41%) and pinot meunier (4%), and was disgorged after three years of ageing on its yeast lees. Pink/pale orange, it is highly scented, lively, complex and smooth, with strawberryish, peachy, yeasty flavours and a long, dryish, harmonious finish.”

95 POINTS & 5 STARS - Bob Campbell, bobcampbell.co.nz, 12 Jan 2016
“A ‘classic’ blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier. Bottle-fermented and aged on the lees for 36 months. This is a very classy wine with a pale pink hue, an ethereal texture and an appealing mix of very subtle strawberry and brioche -like yeast lees character.”
4 STARS – Yvonne Lorkin, bobcampbell.co.nz, 12 Jan 2016
“Pretty trout pink colour and boasting a persistent creamy mousse, delicate beading and subtle cranberry, cashew and shewsbury biscuit characters. Elegant and charismatic.”
