Customer feedback better than Gold Medal

I love hearing customers rave about our Pinot. Gold Medals are great too but when wine is tasted with friends or with food it takes on a new meaning. Wine is to be drunk not tasted. I received this email feedback yesterday.

Dear Phil,
We have just ordered a case of your 2009 Pinot Noir which I hope is as good as your 2008. We bought 2 bottles of the 2008 when in Raglan a few weeks back. To say we were impressed would be an understatement , especially as we had a cousin and his wife staying with us, from France, and know their wines well.

For dinner one evening we had a Felton Road Pinot Noir, which as you more than likely know, is supposed to be the real top shelf stuff. We drank it and liked it but then as a contrast we thought we would try the 2008 Grasshopper Rock PN. THERE WAS NO COMPARISON!!! All present for the meal agreed on this and also to the quality , numero une, of your Pinot. They compared it more than favourably with any thing from France. What more can I say?! Congratulations.

One little word of warning —– the 2009 had better shape up well or I will have to sing your praises only as a one-pony-trick that hasn’ t been repeated. I am sure this will not be the case although one has to remember that the different vintage years do vary for a 100 and 1 reasons. My prayer is that 2008 will be repeated or excelled many times again in the future so that we can continue to enjoy it.

Best regards,
Nigel B.

I am not arrogant enough to think Grasshopper Rock will outshine Felton Road for a long time. As stated greatness comes with consistently delivery outstanding wines and Felton Road has a big headstart.
Grasshopper Rock is a different site and will produce a different Pinot Noir. Of course we are encourage by the nice comparison!
