The Pass Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Color of egg white. Nose is sweet and fruity, with peach, nectar dominant, Sprite, lemon and tangerine, spice, and hint of mineral. Nose is tropical. Taste of ample acidity, tinkling on the tongue, grapefruit and tangerine flavors, and hint of mineral again. Aftertaste is just a bit too light with tasty acidity. Quite nice. — 9 months ago

Felix's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011

Nice single vineyard New Zealand Pinot. Not the spritzy cherry rut I've fallen into, but more a full plush strawberry rhubarb pie. Earthy, pruney, and stemmy given some time. Worthy of the Hobbit scenery. 17 months in barrel. Tastes like a serious effort from a reasonably priced producer. — 6 years ago

Awatere Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Welcome to lockdown 2022, at home drinking - bottle #1 First had this as UH with the Toasst ladies. Danny gravitated to the Barolo that night (which yes, is delicious) — though so is this! Juicy, great minerality, has some depth though goes down super easy (and very reasonably priced). Perfect everyday red. — 6 months ago
