92pts James Suckling

Impressive aromas of violet-like florals and wet stones, as well as blueberries and cherries, making for a complex and appealing nose.  The palate has a very direct, fresh, and piercing feel with focused, assertive tannins.

 

92pts Wine Enthusiast

There is indeed great diversity here in the flavor mix of cilantro, raspberry, cherry and citrus. Those citrus components up the acidity, with lemon, grapefruit and even a touch of green pineapple coming through. Though young, the wine shows good focus, with lightly grainy but ripe tannins. The prime drinking window should open fully in a couple more years. PAUL GREGUTT

 

 

Winemaker Notes

The Diversite cuvee showcases the unique and diverse range of soil, sunlight exposure, and nine clones found on the three Northern blocks of our estate vineyard.  The Swiss Mariafeld clone in particular lends natural spice notes to the wine, which have become distinctive characteristics in this cuvee.  The soil variation for Diversite ranges from heavily broken volcanic basalt on the Northwestern block, to more lush Nekia soil of the Northeastern block.
