Silver Medal Boutique Wines of Australia 2010 Wine Awards

 "Who said they couldn't make pinot noir in Hawke's Bay? This one is in the hills, a few minutes from Waipawa. An abundant and youthful wine, it's one of two made by Rosie Butler and it's full of surprises and flavour. Worth making acquaintance with both."

Winestate magazine 4 stars
"This is one of the finest wines yet from Central Hawke's Bay. The bouquet is fresh and punchy; the palate weighty, with an array of grapefruit, herbal and mineral flavours, fresh, crisp, dry and long."
