Q Pinot Gris 2022

93 Points 

Complex, pure, ripe and enticing bouquet with aromas of spicy pear, apple and quince. Lush satin texture touches the palate with core fruit flavours of white nectarine and citrus, pear and apple then a touch of quince. Acidity and warming alcohol add breadth and weight as well as contrast to the fruit.

Q Rose 2022

93 Points

Sweet red cherry, ripe cranberry, roses and mineral highlight the complexity this wine has to offer. These scents translate to the palate seamlessly with a mineral core then red berry fruit flavours, spice and super fine tannins. Salivating and dry, a wine for summer.

Q Pinot Noir 2021

94 Points

Bright, moderate crimson, lighter edged. This is a soft and delicate bouquet filled with raspberries, cherries melded with fine spices, red blossom and a hint of minerals. Medium-bodied, elegantly presented, raspberries, red cherries and red currants interweave rose, earth and minerals, subtle spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and black peppercorn linger to a lengthy finish. The fruit has weight and depth of flavour, growing in volume with floral fragrance and spice. Supple, silky tannin echoing chalky minerals added mouthfeel. This red-fruited Pinot Noir shows depth and elegance of fruit, delicate spice, and minerals details on a silky, long finish.
