More candied stone fruit than green fruit surprising from steel chard. Chugging! — 21 days ago

Sophia Gimblett Gravels Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Rich Bordeaux blend. Very aromatic expressing dark fruits, cigar box and moist cave. On the palette similar flavors growing in intensity. Fine polished tannins fully integrated giving it a very balanced lingering finish. Needed a special wine today being grateful for God’s protection after flipping the Racer a full 360 and still landing on all four wheels unharmed. Thank you God ❤️ — a month ago

Kumeu Village

Chardonnay 2020

Ripe grapefruit, almost peachy - a little funk which blew off. Enough palate cleansing acidity to make this very moreish. A delicious wine which is amazing value at only $21.50 per bottle from one of the best Chardonnay producers in the New World. A big statement I know but try his premium Mate’s Vineyard and see what you think. — 8 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. — 13 days ago

Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay 2017

Good acidity and a bit of nuttiness to round out a smooth mouthfeel. Good NZ banger! — 10 days ago
