Kamptal, Austria. Transparent yellow-green. On the nose inviting aromas of herbs, supported by a peppery spiciness, followed by fresh cut apple fruit. Racy and crisp on the palate, yet beautifully balanced. Bone dry, refreshing, typical "Grüner” herbal character. The lean body makes it an ideal support for starters or simply as a mouthwatering appetizer...
Kamptal, Austria. The palate is very juicy and spicy on the same time. Full bodied and smoothly textured. Despite the ripeness plenty of typical spiciness and freshness. Tremendously persistent in the finish with a tight core...
Gisborne, New Zealand. A bright fruited, expressive nose with notes of dark cherry, juniper
berry and fine burnished leather, yet with a subtle hint of roses.

now has flavours of fine wool and bush honey including quince and ripe
bouche pear with a long tingling aftertaste...
Casablanca, Chile. "This is a great wine but it throws me off the scent of pinot noir in some respects. It’s bloody, savoury, briary and squishy red berry fruited in bouquet.

There’s a lushness and freeness to the wine, away from the control of fine pinot noir, but firmly in the slot of a layered, lengthy, interesting and fine drinking red wine..."
