Hawkes Bay Chenin Blanc 2012

One of my favourite wines! It's been doing reall well for it's age and could even go a year or two more. Amazingly intense botes of stonefruit with manuka honey! I'm really proud of these grapes! — 6 years ago

Esk Valley

Hawkes Bay Pinot Gris 2015

A toast to the last night in Fiji. A wonderful, richer styled Pinot Gris. A citrus and honeyed nose with a touch of peach leads to a rich palate of baked apple, peach, honey and a touch of oak balanced by bright acidity, wet stone and possibly a touch of RS. The finish is long a clean. A wonderful sipper. — 5 years ago

Hawkes Bay Syrah 2013

Nose of peppercorns savoury spices and minerals Medium weight with plummy minerality coming through on the palate. Hawkes Bay NZ Syrah has always been a favourite of mine starting with Te Mata's Bull Nose Syrah 10 years ago. This Salo is made by leading Aussie winemaker Steve Flamsteed of Giant Steps in the Yarra Valley Tasted again 36 weeks later. Lacked a little mid palate fruit when compared to the Mt Langhi Cliff Edge which was a similar cool climate peppery Shiraz. I preferred the Langhi. — 6 years ago
