Winemaker’s Notes: A delicious combination of ripe summer fruits and delicate floral perfume-citrus blossom and elderflower entwined with nectarines and white peaches, mandarin and cantaloupe with a twist of lemon. Intensely flavored, succulent and crisp with a delicate herbal infusion – quintessential Marlborough.

93 Points James Suckling: Quite fragrant black fruit aromas with concentrated dry tannins to balance them. Plenty of life, too. Better from 2018.
90 Points Wine Spectator: This generous red delivers cherry, berry, vanilla, orange peel and baking spice notes, with light tannins and juicy acidity. Forest floor and tea details give this a traditional character. Drink now through 2023.
Winemaker Notes: Aged for 16 months in French and American oak barrels, Izadi Reserva is a shiny ruby color. Rich aromatic intensity with a nice balance of red fruit, liquorice and spices and smoked hints in the background. Elegant and round in the palate with a long aftertaste that brings back floral and fruity memories.
