This wine is a puppy, but truly is delicious

Great value and great vintage
Much better than the 2010

Pyramid Valley Vineyards

Calrossie Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Little bit of bike tire reduction outta the gate, but it cleans up in a hurry. This is pure Chambolle-Musigny. The best NZ pinot I've had. Focused, perfumed, and just the right kinda musky. Red currant, blood orange, potting soil, and kelp. Wonderfully melted tannin, finesse for days. Has a long life ahead of it. — 12 days ago

Johnno's Sémillon 2010

The funny thing is that you aspect a crisp vertical wine and I dare to say this label is exceptionally well made every vintage I have tasted. Potential to age unlimited
You get so much flesh with chablis like minerality which you very rarely meet
Long finish
Yes still super young but also very enjoyable already

Vat 1 Hunter Valley Semillon 2006

Magnum, blind tasted
At first it resembled a white Burgundy, a Chateaunnef-du-Pape blanc or a Gruner Smaragd from the Wachau
So toasty it was hard to tell that it was only a 12yo Semillon and I dare anyone to guess this wine didn't touch oak
Very elegant, super easy drinking
It went down too quickly, maybe we were too many
