The wines from Quartz Reef receive consistent praise by wine writers. With the colder months approaching it is their top quality Pinot Noir's that are in the limelight:

Quartz Reef Pinot Noir 2010, Central Otago

“This year, Quartz Reef became just the sixth vineyard in New Zealand to achieve full biodynamic certification. This is a fine pinot from the 2010 vintage, with supple dark cherry fruit around an intense and fresh core of stony mineral.”
JO BURZYNSKA, VIVA - NZ HERALD

Quartz Reef Pinot Noir 2010, Central Otago

“Pomegranate tangy on the nose and redolent with intense squeezed forest berry pips. Preserved citrus peel, too, plus iron-like smells. Huge gunpowdery palate, with a core of loganberrylike fruits. A powerful chewy pinot noir.”
TIM WHITE - AUSTRALIAN FINANCIAL REVIEW

Quartz Reef Bendigo Estate Pinot Noir 2010, Central Otago

“Elegantly perfumed pinot noir with layered fruit and floral flavours. It’s charming and has a lingering finish. Power delivered with great subtlety. Quartz Reef consistently rates among the region’s very best pinot noirs every year.”
BOB CAMPBELL - GOURMET TRAVELLER WINE
