Luscious. I'm on my third order of this tasty drop.

I've happily drunk my way through 3 cases and am about to order the fourth which at $12/bottle today (May 2016) is superb value. It's almost up to Barren Rock quality but that one has become too expensive for me now and I'm very happy to make Ghost Hawk my standard.

I bought this one hoping it would be of similar quality to their pinot noir which is superb but it's not, alas. It's ok but nothing special.

Lammastide (Hawkes Bay) 2014 Cabernet FrancReview written for Lammastide (Hawkes Bay) Cabernet Franc (Product not available at this time)

I really like this wine and glad I took a punt on it. It is really smooth and tasty, and a bit gentler than Cab Sauv so it's excellent for sipping while having a few cheese and crackers before getting ready to prepare dinner, but equally good with food. Highly recommended. One bottle down, eleven to go... and that certainly won't be a chore.

Evenwood (Coonawarra) 2013 Cabernet SauvignonReview written for Evenwood (Coonawarra) Cabernet Sauvignon (Product not available at this time)

This is a delicious wine and I'm delighted to order a second case at $12/bottle. It's well worth it. Smooth and fruity but with a bit of that Cabernet edge to it. It's great with food (match it with whatever you like) and also for a relaxing preprandial glass.

Tussock (Nelson) 2013 Pinot NoirReview written for Tussock (Nelson) Pinot Noir (Product not available at this time)

It's pleasant enough but nothing special and there are others for a similar price that deliver better (of course, there are others in the same price bracket that are worse). The writeup for this wine (probably like most) had more than a touch of hyperbole.

This wine is delicious, lots of flavour and character and very smooth drinking.

* Long Flat (Australia) 2012 Semillon Sauvignon BlancReview written for Long Flat (Australia) Semillon Sauvignon Blanc (Product not available at this time)

This is a wine of no particular character or distinction. It's sort of ok on special at $6.99 but not worth the full $10.99 price. The accompanying notes are rather euphemistic. It is a thin wine, not 'medium bodied', and 'crisp acidity' translates to sharp.

A very welcome change from the usual Aussie and NZ reds.

a good tasty drop but for similar price I prefer the Barren Rock.

I found this wine disappointing and flavourless and won't be buying it again.

Very tasty, one of the best in its price range but stiff competition from Barren Rock
