Review: Campbell Mattinson - Winefront Monthly, Edition: March 2005
2003 Chardonnay - "Rattle the cage. Give it some air. Take a long look at it and see the aromas of rice paper rolls, pear, mineral and toast before a textured, layered, bitter, minerally-driven palate of extraordinary delicacy given the year...It doesn't taste like a freak-year wine; it tastes like a wine from the Savaterre vineyard; the best compliment. Drink 2006-2010. 93 points."
2003 Savaterre Pinot Noir - "Think on the conditions; this is a year that should have spelled disaster for pinot noir. That it didn't is the biggest indicator of the magic of this vineyard I have seen. It's got the mystery, the magic, the complexity you desire. It's got minerality, flavours of baked earth, forest, rose, toast and tar, together with streams of dry, long, structured tannins...Drink: 2006 -2012. 93 points."
