Awatea 2016 Reviews

'The palate is elegant and taut with fine concentration of blackberry, blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit, along with hints of leaf and red florals. Good linearity, and carries to a fragrant red-fruited finish.' 18/20 ★★★★

Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, March 2018 Featuring: Awatea 2016

'Delectable. Overdelivering for the price.' 95 points ★★★★★
