Wine Reviews

Quartz Reef Methode Traditionnelle Rose NV

CHAMPION NEW ZEALAND SPARKLING TROPHY

'Best of the Best'

“The most delicate pink sapphire colour with evocative baking bread nuances, hints of strawberry, a savoury backbone and a crisp, fresh, mouth-watering finish.”

New Zealand International Wine Show 2012 - Reviewed September 2012

Quartz Reef Pinot Noir 2010

90 points

Bright medium red.  Pungent aromas of cherry, redcurrant and minerals.Concentrated, spicy and light on its feet, with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of red berries, flowers and spices.  An herbal nuance gives the finish a positive bitterness.

Very suave, fresh pinot with plenty of life ahead of it.
