    Sheer class, there’s no other words for it!

    From a single vineyard, boutique Central Otago producer with the sole focus of making kick ass Pinot Noir and Riesling. This is a wine that over the years has won just about everything there is to win, been seen in very high places (try 35,000 feet) and slurped by the rich and famous! Served in international business class on Air NZ, served at the world famous French Laundry restaurant in the USA, chosen as a wine to showcase to international visitors during Rugby World Cup 2011, Prince William even knocked back a glass or two on a visit a few years back!

    With an already bulging trophy cabinet back at the winery, this 2014 vintage has got off to a flyer already with FOUR 5-Star reviews notched up:

    5 Stars (95/100) – Bob Campbell (MW)
    5 Stars – Michael Cooper (MW)
    5 Stars (95/100) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
    5 Stars – Raymond Chan

    Owned and operated by US born Domenic Mondillo, originally trained as a chef before moving to NZ in the 80s to start up his own wine label.

    With 11 months in French oak this is a powerful, silky, spicy Pinot that’s impressive right now but tuck it away for another six or seven years and be totally blown away!
