4 Stars – Winestate
4 Stars – Cuisine Magazine
4 Stars –  Michael Cooper
Savoury, earthy and deeply coloured, with good density of cherry, plum and spice flavours, and a firm backbone of tannin.” Michael Cooper
Deeply coloured full-fl avoured Pinot Noir with an aroma of berry fruits, dark stone fruit on the palate followed by spicy oak, a pleasing mouth-feel, and elegant soft tannins enabling it to age gracefully for at least 10 years.

Maori Point (Central Otago) 2010 Pinot Gris – Now only $14.99!!
3½ stars Winestate 
17.0 /20 Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

“This is a lively, fruit-driven style, with a bright pale, straw-yellow colour and a fresh, steely nose with stonefruits, apples and pears showing, along with a flinty lees note.” Raymond Chan 
Soft and silky, a rich dry aromatic Pinot Gris fragrant with ripe pears and apples. The palate is well structured with generous white nectarines and peaches and a soft crisp finish. Lees stirring during fermentation added complexity and a smooth mouth-feel.
