Cloudy Bay

Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Staring down the barrel of home workouts once again, sigh...
I think vintage received rave reviews from WS, and for good reason. The nose presents blossom, lychee and jasmine. Palate is vibrant and energetic. Beautiful, exotic delineation, with pineapple and limestone.perfect sweetness with racy acidity. Excellence from NZ.

I visited this winery a few years ago while birding in NZ. A good place with great wine. We bought a mixed case and drank it all the way to Stewart island. A really great wine.

@Jody Scharf, I’m a little late, but hope you and yours had a great one, too.
@Hugh O'Riordan, Cloudy Bay wines are a point of reference in our book. Not made it to NZ tho, yet!

From the Haro-Lumia Taster’s Dozen. Subtle, caressing, yet bursting with melon, citrus, and lime. Mouthwatering and leaves you wanting more. Amazing effort. A WS Top 100 and well deserved. — 7 days ago

@Dawn E. Just how I like my Sauv Blanc!



Pelee Island Winery

Shiraz Cabernet 2018

Pleasantly surprised - for the price, this is def a good purchase. Smooth, even a bit sweet, this blend would stand up to spaghetti or Mexican, but also be a pleasant stand-alone sipping red. Yes, buy more. — 4 days ago

Kumeu River

Maté's Vineyard Chardonnay

Plush and intriguing. Drinking very well at age 10, this is one of my favorite Chardonnays. Notes similar to last time with a slight oiliness. — 8 days ago
