Emma's block Pinot Noir

More elegant and fine boned than all the other pinots, but still incredible structure. More accessible but still backward. — 2 years ago

Red Shed Pinot Blanc 2015

On the nose, sour & sweet; pear, lemon, lime, green apple and white & yellow florals. Dry in style. Pear, green apple, underripe green melon with rhine, spice, canned pears, white peach, stones, spice that rises, delicate minerals with great acidity and finish. Photos of additional tasting areas, clean water photo of our drive outside Queenstown and their garden sign. New Zealand lake water is so much cleaner than ours. — 4 years ago

Rocky Point Pinot Noir 2019

Take a typical good-quality PN and amplify everything from color, nose, mouthfeel, structure, and length - and you get to this wine from Rocky Point, a steep hill above a lake in central Otago. Color is deep violet; nose is high-octane black fruits (mulberry) and ripe cran- and strawberries, and minerality and a sweet herbaciousness; taste is full bodied with round tannins, dense fruit, medium-high aclohol, rubber and spice. And all well balanced. Would love to try in 3-5y. — 6 months ago

Casey Curbow

Incredibly fresh and seamless fruit and floral aromatics. Preserved strawberry and straw. Perfectly integrated richness from oak regiment. Last bottle drank was in a savory umami stage 4-5 years ago, but this was singing at peak somehow. — 6 months ago

Lake Wanaka Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc

The most mineral and least fruit driven Sauv Blanc tasted. Citrus and mineral dominate, with a bit of austere depth. Even more mineral than Sancerre — 2 years ago
