The Real Review Recognitions

2021 Nepenthe Apex Shiraz: 93 Points, Huon Hooke

"Deep red-purple color with a graphite/broken rock and freshly tilled earth bouquet; machine oil too, and floral notes later. Intense flavor, only medium to full in body, with refreshing acidity on an elegant framework. Classic shiraz iron-stony character, but here it's in a slightly lighter weighted palate."

2021 Nepenthe Apex Pinot Noir: 90 Points, Aaron Brasher

"Youthful and bright in the glass. Fragrant aromas of sap, bramble, underbrush, cherry and a menthol kick. Fresh and punchy on the palate, full of cherry, raspberry, dried herbs and spice. There's an underlying menthol/eucalyptus sappiness on the finish that dominates. Tannins are firm and structured and the acidity has zip."

2023 Nepenthe Elevation Sauvignon Blanc: 89 Points, Stuart Knox

"Very pale lemon-yellow hue. Cut asparagus and green papaya aromas. Palate mirrors the aromatics with bright acidity accentuating the freshness. Good length and will be a real crowd pleaser."
