Valley of Spies Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

A top wine on Spectators list, tried several vintages. Pale lemon with aromas of citrus and tropical fruit with herb floral notes. On the palate flavors of zesty sour green apple fruit flavors and some grassy tones, lively acidity. The wine finished with fruit, herbs, grassy and mineral notes. — 3 months ago

Marlborough Riesling 2016

Without going into a tirade on TDN in young Rieslings, I’ll just start off by saying that this was decent and showed good typicity as an Australasian Riesling. Aromas of petrol, lime cordial, lemon, and musk. Salted limes, pepper, crisp acidity, medium weight, and a touch of bitter fruit peel/phenolics on the palate. It’s got nice energy, but the petrol kills it for me. — 2 months ago

Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Nice balance of smooth and fruit. Notes of cherry and clove with an oakey undertone. Definitely great when aged as least 4 years and well aerated. — 4 months ago


Awatere Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Welcome to lockdown 2022, at home drinking - bottle #1 First had this as UH with the Toasst ladies. Danny gravitated to the Barolo that night (which yes, is delicious) — though so is this! Juicy, great minerality, has some depth though goes down super easy (and very reasonably priced). Perfect everyday red. — 6 months ago
