The Wine Front – "When you leave the path, you'll have a winemaker ask you questions and you don't know the answers, and you might worry, but you'll have enlightenment. Did you use any enzyme? You answer Nup. What's the pH on this? Dunno. Nup and dunno are two of the greatest things", winemaker Michael Glover on a roll, "the winemakers will look back at you with astonishment and concern, but it's beautiful, that's when you've cut off the cord". This wine had some skin contact in early stages, went through natural ferment, natural malolactic fermentation, and was left in old barrels for a year on lees, then sulphured; no additions aside that. Comes from gravel soils in Nelson off the estate vineyard. Pale golden colour. Honey drizzled lemon/lime. Has a touch of stony/flint like character in perfume too. Full flavoured but light, crunchy-textured style. Impressive length. Truly. Stacks of character. Full orchestra of flavour and texture but retains a vitality, and, importantly, very high drinkability. What ho! Delicious." 93 points, Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au

The Wine Front – Started by Shane Munn, the previous winemaker, finished by Michael Glover. About 60% of this is whole bunch with a blend of three of the top blocks. It's a one off in style and vision, with 2015 seeing the single blocks being presented as single wines. Smoke, rich earth and twiggy scents. Ripe, punchy dark berry and macerated cherry fruit character. Washes the palate with sweet, clean earthy character, game meat, dark fruits. Chewy tannins and ripples of murky spice. Finishes warm and full. It's a generous style, blocky, full, and many will love. 93 points, Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au
