Medium yellow colour reflecting some age development, while the bouquet is very flinty, smoky and sulfidic, the burnt-matchstick note almost straying into an electrical-fire smell. Liberal oak has been employed. The wine is full-bodied and intense, but elevated acidity keeps it very much alive on the tongue. This wine makes a statement. It's an extreme style as far as sulfides go. Date Tasted: Dec 2019; Rating: 94 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
This has such complex and rich style to it with a flinty edge to the peach, grilled-lime and lemon-pith aromas. The palate has really rich textural layering and plenty of peach, grapefruit and pastry flavors. Resolved, powerful and smooth. Drink or hold. Date Tasted: Dec 2019; Rating: 95 Points; James Suckling
Yup, a little struck-match character on this one as well as on the Sauvignon Blancs – as one might expect. Completely deeelicious in my book. What a bargain! If, and only if, you like this style. But this seems constructed for the long term with exceedingly true and bright fruit. Coche fans could save a fortune ... Fairly rich fruit but with no shortage of trademark Marlborough acidity to keep it fresh. 17/20 Points; Jacins Robinson
