I expected more from a #singlevineyard release from #kumeu and that has been touted by the likes of #jancisrobinson must be an #mw thing. Too expensive for what it delivered. Better off with the #estate wines of Kumeu. #newzealand #pinotnoir — 22 days ago

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Refreshingly subtle #marlborough #sauvignonblanc - it doesn’t smack you in the nose with green tropical fruit, more subdued passion fruit, grapefruit, citrus notes, nicer weight on the tongue but plenty of tension to keep things balanced. Strong QPR here. — 13 days ago

River Road Ranch Pinot Noir 2016

Light, tastes like a Burgundy. Hints of fruit. A wine to sip in the afternoon or for a warm day. — 3 days ago

Felton Road

Block 3 Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

9.4

I might have mentioned this in a previous Felton Road post. If you haven’t tried this producer and you love White Burgundy, Burgundy & Ca Pinot, you owe to yourself to find a bottle(s). The fruit Nigel and his team produce is top shelf & some of the best acidity I’ve had. This is better than most more expensive CA Pinots & Burgundies I’ve had & their offering’s are in the $50-$65 range.

I love warm day & cool night Pinots. This is the climate of Central Otago. Their fruits are nicely ripe with acidity for days.

The mouthfeel is glorious, sexy and elegant. The blackberries, black raspberries, black plum, raspberries and strawberries really sing. This 16 is young & I’d hold it another 3-5 years for better things. Think it hits 95-96 at that point. This still shows some stronger spice & cinnamon stick at this age. Dark soils, underbrush, some savory meats, a dash of herbaceousness, tree bark dipped in sap, mixed mid fruit cola. clove, some vanillin with amazing, bright florals that are dark, fresh; red, blue, purple set in violets. Perfect acidity and an elegant, ruby, well balanced, smartly polished finish that sings on the palate for minutes.

Photos of; the view from their property in April 2017 which, is their fall, outside fermentation tank, my walking the property with owner Nigel Greening and my wife enjoying her walk around the property.

Westside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir 2008

9.2

The replacement for the 2010 Bucher Vineyard that showed just enough V/A to dump it.

The 08 Westside Road Neighbors was in fine shape. Love their fruits & profile at this age.

Ryan Road Willunga Mourvèdre 2014

This must be the most unique, crazy good wine of the year. So spicy so intense with dark fruit drenched in dark cigar box, tar like tannins. So addictive. Mourvèdre from Down Under by Two Hands. Just don’t drink it with Tammy because she tries to take it all 😉. — 4 hours ago
