Te Muna Road Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2019

I remember having this at the winery 4 years ago and thinking at the time it was one of the best sav blancs id ever tasted, which is easy to say in that setting. Revisiting and it’s still excellent, but I’m drinking it in my kitchen. More soft peach than typical passion fruit. Wonderfully balanced and unique.

Marion's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2011

This was tasting amazing after a good 5-7 year cellaring. Lost all of that young Martinborough Pinot character and was very rich, flavorful, and delicious. Wow! — 19 days ago

Chardonnay 2012

Found this bottle by accident in my cellar not thinking I had any left. Barrel ferment characters - nutty and mealy notes. Lemon cream on the palate, and, as my previous notes, reminiscent of a Grand Cru Corton Charlemagne. I have said it many times before but the best New Zealand Chardonnays are world class. Still fresh and tastes young - nothing like 8 years of age. The following day funky slightly smelly aromas like old tea towel. Decanter Magazine (UK) awarded this wine in 2014 I think, the best Chardonnay outside Burgundy. — a month ago

Kiwa Single Vineyard Martinborough Pinot Noir 2016

I give this a higher rating than the 8.9 average. A very smooth yet full bodied Pinot with an excellent nose. Very drinkable. Would get again. Love me some New Zealand Pinot Noir. ❤️😊🍷 — a month ago
