Wine & Spirits:
This chenin’s broad flavors of quince paste have a fresh lanolin note. It’s bold and juicy, with sweetness cut by slightly starchy acidity, the wine’s youthful tension needing bottle age to mellow. (4/2016)

Wine Spectator:
A forward style, with candied ginger, dried pear, quince and chamomile notes that are threaded together nicely. Lingering mineral edge through the finish
