Innocent Bystander

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2020

I hate the label but enjoy the wine. Medium bodied with delicately spiced raspberry fruit and savory earth. Polished tannins, sleek acidity, and smooth concentration. Great QPR. — a month ago

Bannockburn Chardonnay 2019

White florals, citrus notes verging on white peach. These same notes extend through to the palate with Medium minus acid finishing with a saline note. Very moreish. There should be a bigger fuss made on the excellence of New Zealand Chardonnay which can be world class. Just the right amount of acid for short term cellaring. Thoroughly delicious. — 2 months ago

Block 5 Pinot Noir 2015

Dark cherry and coriander in this nose.

Provocative blackberry bramble, garden vegetable stalks, dried berry, tinges of menthol.
Such an amazing winery, they command a hefty price here, yet quite worth it in winemaking skill and fruit farming.
7 years and still going strong.
Happy weekend!

Rippon Vineyard

Lake Wanaka Mature Vine Riesling 2020

Medium light lemon straw , with green hints . White flowers , citrus peel, herbal touches , touch of that petrol note , quite discreet overall however. Fresh with good intensity on the palate , some rounder , riper fruits, slightly creamy texture , green apple ,tangerine , lime cordial. Dry , quite intense finish , fresh acidity . Well balanced and refreshing overall, no excess weight here and good extract. Nice to drink now , but pretty young, will probably age relatively well over the next 5 to 7 years . — 2 months ago

Central Otago, not Tasmania. I was there and missed on the opportunity to try sparkling from there. All the wine I had from there had amazingly, beautiful acidity. I did have a few from Tasmania. 👍🙃

It's delicious, especially after the first of the spring lawn care regimen, 6H later, I'm beat.

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018

A gorgeous waft of fresh baked cherry pie in the breeze.

Some sour cherry jam, tarragon, green tea, black cherry, dried fig.
So many layers and ins and outs, a wonderful wine.
Light tannins, zesty acidity - well made.
