Has the Bruce Dukes stamp on it, providing a wine that has purity and finesse, yet also haunting complexity to its flavours. I'll happily buy into Dukes' key words of gooseberry and guava, but there's also a tracer bullet of zesty/pithy citrus on the long, emphatic finish.
95 points | James Halliday, Wine Companion

Complex layered and blended white. Sauvignon offering lifted fragrances of gooseberry and lychee, with Semillon offering fig, white grapefruit and a mineral component. The portion of barrel fermentation introduces exotic spice and textural harmonisation.Fruit is harvested based on flavours and natural acidity. A third of the blend is fermented and aged for 2 months on lees in seasoned French oak barrels to enhance mouth feel and to introduce complexion elements, while the balance Is cool fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness.
