Pegasus Bay

Main Divide Pinot Gris 2018

Vintage 2018 | Ooooph, this is an impressive wine: extremely expressive smell with spices and flint, well balanced taste with good concentration. The sommelier told that the wine comes from grapes harvested late from high vineyards. | Paired with langoustine and chanterelles | at restaurant Alma in Oisterwijk — 21 days ago

North Canterbury Pinot Noir 2017

Tart cranberry, dried baking spices and black pepper. Not my favorite PN, but certainly does the trick at this afternoon price. — 2 months ago

Field of Fire Chardonnay 2015

This is wonderful. Full and round. Mouth filling with great body and length. I note it is now quite expensive which is no surprise. Last of the 2015 in my cellar. — 4 months ago

Upon opening the bottle there was lots of smoke. Kind of obnoxious. That goes away after half an hour and you really start to get that red cherry fruit. Light color with some cloudiness. It’s growing on me. — 3 months ago

Mt. Beautiful

North Canterbury Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Lush and bright with a crisp finish. Lime, green apple, kiwi, white peach and a little melon with a smattering of herbs rather than heavy pyrazines. Lots of acidity for freshness, although a bit high in alcohol, so has some body. The oak doesn’t get in the way for me, as it often does w SB — it adds to the texture and lush mouthfeel and adds a a hint of spice, but otherwise pretty classic. — a month ago
