2012 Auntsfield Estate Sauvignon Blanc
Top NZ Sauvignon Blanc – Cuisine Magazine
5 Stars * * * * * - Rated No. 1 wine in tasting of 238 New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs
“ When sauvignon blanc is nurtured and made with care and respect, the result is a wine like this: pure, concentrated, juicy and interesting. A classic herbal and capsicum riff rings out over a slightly smoky, minerally bass line. A fine acid line and a suave, fleshy texture are the keys to the wine’s structural elegance. “It’s not reliant on any overt elements,” said John Belsham. “It’s restrained in both taste and texture.”
Cuisine Magazine, Sauvignon Blanc Tasting, Jan 2013
“ 95 per cent of this wine is cool-fermented in stainless steel using cultured yeasts. The balance is made from handpicked, whole-bunch pressed grapes that are fermented using wild yeasts in seasoned oak barrels, which adds subtle complexity without suppressing fruit intensity. Concentrated wine with a mix of stone fruit, passionfruit, mineral and a seasoning of grass/green capsicum flavours. Impressive texture and a lingering finish – very attractive.”

2010 Auntsfield Single Vineyard Chardonnay TOP 10 Chardonnay - 4.5 Stars
“ Loads of adjectives littered the judging sheets with this wine – one sip and you’ll see why. “Buttered bagel and ripe grapefruit flavours;” “really attractive fruit toast and oak sweetness;” “palate is sound, dry and really interesting;” “very well made wine”, and “rather lovely, spicy mid-palate weight – darn lovely!” So yes, a very impressive wine indeed.”

2010 ‘Cob Cottage’ Chardonnay TOP 10 Chardonnay - 4.5 Stars
“ To have two chardonnays featuring in our Top Ten out of 119 wines is no mean feat, but brothers Ben (viticulturist) and Luc (winemaker) Cowley have poured their hearts and souls into these wines and their efforts clearly show through in the results. “I love the juicy, bright acidity,” remarked Yvonne Lorkin, “and the lovely, buoyant layers of flavour and texture”. Cameron Douglas MS and Andrew Parkinson found the fruit concentration powerful and edgy, yet nicely balanced; alongside a complex, mealy, grainy finish.”

2010 'Road Ridge' Pinot Noir "TOP 50 PINOT NOIRS OF NEW ZEALAND"
Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com, Feb 2013
“ The debut 2010 vintage (4.5*) is a single block (as opposed to the broader 'single vineyard') designation, matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (33 per cent new). Ruby-hued, scented and supple, it's a very graceful and sweet-fruited wine with strong, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, finely integrated oak and a silky texture. Best drinking 2014+. ”
