Wine review: "Straw yellow with a bright green edge. Whilst taught and austere with grapefruit and pithy citrus. It is the addition of subtle brioche, almond meal and generally wholesome characters, combined with a complex leesy funk that assemble all the components of this wine so well. Long, lively and luxurious. Very stylish indeed."
Wine Business Magazine
Wine review: "A Beginning in which cellar-derived complexity skillfully leads ahead of fruit focus. This is a textural, savoury, funky and complex rendition, with more charcuterie and gunflint barrel-derived complexity than ever."

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion
Wine review: "Bright quartz-green; has very good texture and structure, the barrel fermentation inputs controlled, allowing the elegant stone fruit and grapefruit flavours to have their say in an undemonstrative fashion; minerally acidity provides the full stop."
