“JDV stands for ‘Joie De Vivre’. The 2020 vintage (4*) was made principally from Hawke’s Bay Merlot. Pink hued, it is a characterful wine, full-bodied, with good concentration of fresh strawberry, watermelon and spice flavours, and a dry finish.”
90/100 4.5-STARS | WINE ORBIT
“Fresh and inviting, the bouquet shows lifted aromas of Gala apple, apricot, strawberry and subtlespice notes, leading to an elegantly flavoursome palate delivering juicy fruit flavours backed by crisp acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2022.”

“Made by Cam Duke, local-yet-internationally-experienced-rosé-o-rama-obsessive winemaker, this gets the Yvonne Lorkin award for best wine bottle featuring seahorses, butterflies, frogs, cherries, pomegranate, bees, birds and even Nemo. Crafted from predominantly merlot, it’s a stonefruit and citrus fest edged with a dusting of white pepper. Taut, punchy and refreshing, this is a case of the wine tasting as good as the bottle is pretty.”
