Thirst Magazine – Article on Alexandra Basin Wines – Cameron Douglas (November 2010).
“The Perseverance Pinot Gris 2010 tasted of sweet pear and red apple, off dry with crisp acidity and sound fruit flavours – 3.5 stars. Their first vintage Pinot Noir ’06 was dry with smokey kirsch and cherry flavours, slightly drying tannins with a dusty edge, a sound tasty food wine.”

Perseverance Rosé 2010. A zesty, pungent wine with hints of citrus, greengage and tropical fruit, nuts, an oily texture and a zesty, balanced finish. Four stars
Hospitality Magazine – Wine Review by Cameron Douglas (April 2011)
“Suggestions of crushed pear and apple with a hint of honeysuckle, white peach and white flower. The first thing that strikes me about this wine is the balance and that the off-dry approach works nicely with the primary fruit flavours. As the wine opens up it begins to display soft white pepper notes and a hint of minerality. The acidity is bright, and refreshing and carries the wine to a moderate-plus finish”.
