"Beautifully lifted aromatics. There is some nice spice and sour cherry, a hint of raspberry and sweet confectionery character. The palate has a deep lingering intensity with power and finesse. This is a classy wine of great poise and expression. There is a trace of minerality with schisty gravelly loam displaying a beautiful purity. This is from different vineyards in Central Otago, hence different soils with different rootstocks and clones adding to the complexity."

"The deeply fragrant nose offers sweet florals, cane fruits and exotic perfume. Signature lavender aromatics are at once bright and restrained in this vintage. Broad ranging red fruits and vibrant sandalwood are presented over a crystalline structure and elegant framework. Mocha undertones lend intriguing hints of noble power with soft and feathery tannins offering persistence and poised balletic precision." -- Winemaker
