The wines also achieved good scores from Neal Martin with our Estate Reserve Chardonnay 2016 receiving 90 points and 91 points for Glass Collection Cabernet Franc 2016. In the words of Neal Martin, ‘I like the clarity of this wine – proud to be a Cabernet Franc! … the fresh finish leaves you desiring the next sip.’
