Did the Creator touch this land and turn this bottling into wine?

Gods country & Jesus wine.

Perfect mouthfeel & purity, gorgeous, delicate, soft citrus, round, waxy, honeysuckle, amazing, perfect, beautiful chalkiness, elegant, grey minerality, some of the best acidity & incredible balance in a wine I’ve had. The finish is in the theatre of, “Forget About It.” WOTN.

Very Burgundian and better than many I’ve enjoyed for less💰.

Photos of, the harvest time view of the valley floor from the property, open top fermenting Pinot Noir grapes, my property walk & talking w/owner Nigel Greening (amazing time with an amazing person/producer and outside concrete ranks...it’s an even warm to cool growing season that translates into a long fruit hang-time, amazing fruit & acidity.

Fruit forward pinot with tangy red cherries. A bit like a cherry life-saver followed by some salty mineral notes. Pop, pour, enjoy! — 8 days ago

Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc

The bouquet is worth most of 90 points all by itself! Intense tropical fruits — pineapple and ripe mango — on the nose. But the other components make it even better. Lemon citrus on the front, balanced by a tart mineral finish. A very unique Sauv Blanc, but utterly delish! — 8 days ago

Pretty much of what I want from a red wine. With some maturity. Strawberries n hay n a little yellow berries. Good acididi n length. One could always ask for more but hey! — 4 days ago
