Chasing Venus

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Typical but subdued (in the BEST way) Marlborough savvy b. Identified by me in a blind tasting early though I worried when I offered my decision seeing as this is an ELEGANT Sauvignon Blanc. Grass and gooseberries for days yet they are all supes chill like hey..,we are from the southern island all cool. And they are and this wine is, — 9 days ago

The Brothers Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

This is significantly better than the previous ratings suggest. Decent depth and not nearly as tart/acidic as many Pinots from Marlborough. The earthy/fruity balance is excellent. Good buy. — 6 days ago

Jackson Estate

Vintage Widow Pinot Noir 2013

Color of seducing ruby with purple hue. Nose of milk, nice dark fruits like ripe cherry, spice, coke cola. Taste is silky, with sweet vanilla, cherry, dried seaweed, juicy grapes, low tannins, spices, and a bit zest. Aftertaste is smooth, spice, and some more sweetness. Easy to drink, with good flavors and complexity. — 10 days ago

Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pleasant and affordable which earns this an added half point. This PN is the Burgundian style; Starts with Dark Cherry then slight cranberry acidity, in the middle it presents earth/loam and appropriate tannic finish with breath of the right amount of oaky raisin. — 3 days ago

Marlborough Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Jesse Pender

Done in an oxidative style that leads to a lot of creamy texture which is balanced out by the high acidity of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Great value and a great buy! — 4 days ago
