Medium lemon in colour. An intriguing classy nose showing funky leesy notes, nectarine, cashew nut, flint and gunsmoke - many nuances. Palate staining citric intensity. One of the world’s great new world Chardonnays - no exaggeration. Has become an annual purchase for me. Postscript:: Similar notes to the 2010 vintage 193 weeks ago. This year I bought the “Hunting Hill” and “Coddington” Cuvées for the first time. Will be interesting to see the differences. — 3 days ago
On this Sunday night I have opened the 2016 Soljans Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
On the nose the aromatics are very compelling explosive with notes of lime, papaya, guava, honeydew melon, orange, passionfruit and minerals.
On the palate there are citrus notes, lemon-lime, nectarine, asian pear, melon, white peach and minerals.
This wine is nicely complex that is medium bodied with a oily saline mouthfeel that has medium acidity that moves nicely into a long clean citrus mineral finish. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend staying safe and healthy? We look forward to the week doing the same. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 16 days ago

This afternoon I have opened the 2015 Soljans Estate Barrique Reserve Marlborough Pinot Noir.
On the nose I am able to get ripe cherry, strawberry jam, cola, ckove, mushroom, some funk, wet leaves and forest floor.
On the palate there is ripe cherry, raspberry, cranberry, plum, clove, mushroom and an earthy component.
This wine is medium bodied with medium acidity and medium sandy tannins with a long earthy finish. I hope everyone's weekend went well and are doing well? We look forward to a wonderful week ahead and as always please stay healthy and safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 9 days ago
I love Martinborough Pinot Noir ! A region you hear barely anything about ... this Pinot is delicious! Delicate , red & dark fruits , spicy . Lovely ! — 13 hours ago
Ripe red fruits with cherry to the fore. Also spice and a hint of ginger - smoky. A light to medium bodied palate finishing with ultra fine grained tannins. To be honest not as impressive as I was expecting. This wine seems to between youthful exuberance but not yet gaining complexity. I did have one a few years ago brought by a friend which was delicious. Try the next in a year or so. — 19 days ago
I agree with the ratings here! Really great white. Perfect for the grilled octopus we had.
Full bodied Blanc. Great balance but nice pineapple overtones. — 8 days ago
