Te Muna Road Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2022


Impressive NZ SB: you have to like this in your face style: huge blast of grapefruit & gooseberry, grassy herbal notes, stones & minerals, it is intense. Not too acidic or angular on palate - particularly if you let it warm up just a bit, fruit turns smoother & more tropical, but still that wall of grapefruit & gooseberry. Lingering dry finish resonates — 2 months ago

Dry River

Martinborough Pinot Gris 2016

Notes of pear with musk. The palate is lush and unctuous showing quince and peach. Again a lovely flavoursome white for winter. New Zealand do some non mainstream varieties like Pinot Gris and Chenin Blanc really well. Delicious is an overused descriptor with wine but this Is bloody delicious!! — 6 months ago

Dry River

Martinborough Pinot Noir 2017

Colour of light to mid Ruby with a tawny rim - almost transparent. Red fruited aromatics of cherry and strawberry with a little pepper and whole bunch notes. Next day a jubey note on the palate amongst the pastel red fruits. M- acid and tannins. Martinborough is great for Pinot Noir. Dry River has some famous neighbours like Ata Rangi and Escarpment. — 6 months ago
