This is Millie, that is nice and patient enough to explain nearly everything to us. Thank you. We bought 3 bottles back from her explanation, recommendations that suits to our palate. It was down to our favourite:

  1. 2012 Single Vineyard – Pinot Noir
  2. 2012 Single Wineyard – Cabernet Souvignon
  3. Sweet Wine – 2013 Late Harvest white

For those who love dessert wine, this Rochford Muscat might suit your palate where it is too sweet for me.
