93/100 – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
5 stars – Michael Cooper
“It’s wonderfully complex and lifted on the nose showing ripe apricot, honey, orange marmalade and cake spice aromas, followed by a delectably sweet palate offering creamy mouthfeel and rich texture. Well balanced by vibrant acidity, making it instantly appealing. At its best: now to 2026.” – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
“Certified organic, the classy, concentrated 2018 vintage was hand-picked in The Corners Vineyard, in the Wairau Valley, and matured on its full yeast lees until bottling in December 2020. Light gold, with a scented, slightly honeyed bouquet, it is currently delicious, with rich peach and apricot flavours, lively acidity and a sweet (103 grams/litre of residual sugar), finely balanced finish.” – Michael Cooper
Tasting Note: From The Corners Vineyards, Rapaura, Wairau Plains, Marlborough. Aromas of florals, beeswax and marmalade, the palate is concentrated, richly textured with an intense varietal definition.
Region: Marlborough, New Zealand
