2011 Gewurztraminer
Quite sweet Gewürztraminer but with a lovely balance of acidity. Gentle and perfectly pure Turkish delight/rose petal flavours. The wine has a lingering finish. Impressive wine, great as an aperitif served well chilled. Score: 89 “Bob Campbell”

This score put my Gewurztraminer as third highest ever rated by Bob Campbell in the wider Canterbury region including Waipara.

2011 Syrah
This is the debut Syrah sourced from Scott Grant and Celine Blond's 20-year-old Canterbury vineyard - and its darn good. Inky magenta-black in the glass and crammed full of blackberry and pepper soaked in pomegranate and cocoa. Really fresh, interesting and a great southern example. “Yvonne Lorkin”
