Mount Brown

Estates North Canterbury Pinot Gris 2020

"It's immediately appealing on the nose showing apricot, poached pear, rockmelon and lemon zest aromas. The palate delivers terrific fruit intensity and richly textured mouthfeel, beautifully balanced by refreshing acidity, offering excellent drinking." Basically if you can find a wine $23.00 better than this….bravo and let me know please. Lols — 4 days ago

Dreadnought Waiheke Island Syrah 2016

Our final long lunch in Cairns at the Salt House on the waterfront. No formal notes but i have always loved this Shiraz from Waiheke Island in the middle of Auckland Harbour NZ. Plummy spicy and savoury with supple tannins. Overtones of Northern Rhone and easy to drink. — 22 days ago

Yes, you would think perhaps the rainfall might be a bit high for quality viticulture but not so.

Pellegrini Vineyards

Eastend Select BBQ Red Blend 2020

I had the pleasure of visiting Pelligrini in August of this year. I have admired their Cabernet Francs in the past and now I can add Petit Verdot to the list. This juicy mid weight red is a great every day wine. I also bought their Petit Verdot labelled wine which was a bit more but just spectacular. The quality of Long Island wine has increased dramatically over the years and this producer should definitely be added to your wine list…. — 2 days ago
