Prestige Collection Pinot Noir 2017

Thought this blind was an aged red burg, so colour me surprised when it was revealed to be a young NZ pinot. Clearly a little more developed than it should be (colour and aromas), but credit where credit’s due, this was quite elegant. Even after the reveal I could not detect that marmalade finish I find so often in NZ pinot’s. This was all red cherries and ripe strawberries, with savoury spices and earthy notes. Perhaps the quality of the oak, which left much to be desired, and rich velvety texture were the only indications of it’s origin. Finished a touch short. There were wines with more intrigue on the table so I didn’t drink much of it, but it definitely wasn’t a bad drop. One to revisit. — 19 days ago

Estate Selection Rosé Blend 2021

Mary H

A step below the #SIB but a refreshing and serviceable rosé. Kitchen sink grape blend of 33% cab, 14% merlot, 17% chard, and a smattering of riesling, cab franc, gewurtz, and pinot noir. (Lacks focus) — 2 days ago

Fantastic nose - dark and brooding. Started watery but then put on bulk with air. Decent pinot. Quite burgundian. Buy again below $40 — a month ago

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2020

This is my new go-to pinot. Dark brooding and spicy. Very Gibbston Valley in character - almost up to Valli or Gibbston Valley single vineyard bottlings, but at half the price this is a strong buy. — a month ago
