Misty Cove

landmark Series Marlborough Riesling 2021

Lemon, lemon zest, green apple, honey, white pepper and a tiny touch of chalk. This is very inviting. The palate is very dry and tangy. The acid drive is strong and the wine could feel almost unbalanced because the acid drive tends to overpower the fruity notes, and there is width and a vivid mouthfeel that goes on for a long time in a fresh and tangy finish. It's good but I believe it could be better along food. I could see myself munching on sushis along this one 🤤🍣🍱 — 6 days ago

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

So silky and weighty for a NZ Sauv Blanc (clearly from the extra hangtime and the Semillon). Love the melange of pyrazines and tropical fruit on the nose with savory herbs and lemon pith on the finish. Finding it hard to put this glass down! — 6 days ago

Pale lemon with aromas of stone and tropical fruits with citrus and floral notes. On the palate fresh fruit flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, apple and melon with lemon citrus wrapped in lively acidity, medium length ending with fruit and lemon citrus texture. — 10 days ago

Rukatac 2020

Not an obvious choice, a Rukatac from Korčula. But a v. nice one.
V. Mediterranean nose with white peach, melon and dried herbs. A lot of them. Plus a salty whiff. Very fresh.
On the palate this shows medium body and a stony, salty backbone. Juicy acidity, yellow fruits, nice balance & flow. At 12.5% alc this is a chilled delight and very food friendly.
A v. nice discovery!

Channing Daughters

Ramato Long Island Pinot Grigio 2021

Love love love Channing Daughters. This Ramato is less rosé, more orange wine, both in color and taste. It’s all wet rocks and incense, raspberries and nettles. Super complex and super tasty. — 11 days ago

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. — 6 days ago
