Gisborne, North Island

Lindauer (Montana)

Special Reserve Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay

Ihanan hedelmäinen, mutta paahteinen jo tuoksussaan! Maku hyvin miellyttävä, hedelmäisen makea ja maukas mutta myös mukavan paahteinen ja hieman tamminen. Myös hiven keltaluumuisuutta ehkä, ei yhtään ns. halppisskumppamakua! Oikein mukava ja maukas, oikeastaan etenkin ihan itsenäänkin. — 25 days ago

Waiheke Island Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

9.1

This is still thriving: elegantly styled Left Bank offering with bright beam of pure cherry & currant, cassis, along w/endearing secondary layers of earth, leather, herbaceousness, hint of pepper, tomato leaf and others... great complexity w/out being all over the place. Mid weight, mild tannins and great freshness. Impressive! — a month ago

Pinot Noir Doug Wisor Memorial Martinborough 2003

Smooth and elegant Pinot Noir from New Zealand. Still vibrant after 18 years. Lots of cherry. Strong but smooth tannins in the finish. Some slightly off flavors, but overall, tastes like an excellent Volnay or Pommard. — 18 days ago

Lovat Vineyard Syrah 2013

Dark Ruby red in colour. The over riding descriptor on nose and palate is black pepper. If you don’t like pepper in your reds (and I do) then you won’t like this. Just medium bodied from cool climate Martinborough (better known for excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay). Touch of red licorice. Fine tannins and ultra peppery. — 12 days ago

Distinctive but not overpowering. Nice on its own or with food. Love it with a charcuterie plate! — 15 days ago

Dry River

Chardonnay 2014

I’ve always had a soft spot for New Zealand Chardonnay and this wine from Martinborough supports the theory. Mid Lemon in colour. Dusty citrus and honey notes. These descriptors transfer through to the palate with white peach and medium acid. A touch of pineapple juice. Another classy Chardonnay from New Zealand. — 17 days ago

Kumeu River

Coddington Chardonnay 2018

Beautiful struck match, flinty, white burgundy nose. Unfortunately the palate can’t quite live up - slightly dilute, lemon-lime, linear — 20 days ago

North Fork of Long Island Albariño 2019

So,so impressive- concentrated grapefruit pith and light lime fruits. Floral and minerally on the nose. Pitch perfect balance with high acidity. NBA playoffs accompaniment, shared by good neighbors. — 24 days ago
