Really like this Sauv Blanc. Not too sweet, easy and crisp finish. Really good value for the price. Will be buying another case. — 15 days ago
Friday night and the wine of the evening is the 2018 Glover Family Vineyard Zephyr Pinot Noir. This is from Marlborough New Zealand.
On the nose there is chrrry, raspberry, cranberry, clove, spice, herbs, rose petals, faint oakand earth.
On the palate is juicy red fruit, cherry, raspberry, strawberry, clove, mushroom and a nice earthy feel.
This wine is medium bodied that has good tension and a smooth mouthfeel, medium + acidity and medium to medium + fine tannins which leaves you with a long fresh red fruit finish. Have a great weekend and please be safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 14 days ago

Waipara west, two terrace red, pinot noir, waipara 2016
There's a bit of an oaky thing first on the nose, along with gun powder (which goas away after a while), pomegranate, cherry and raspberry and a tiny touch of grapefruit. That's an intense nose! The palate is made of a huge acid backbone, a silky mouthfeel through and through, with an almost milky texture at some poiny (first time I encounter such with a pinot), a nice cherry, raspberry note all along, gentle, carressing tannins in midpalate before a rather long, tangy finish with the same fruity notes, that silky, slightly teasing tannic layer and subtle bitterness too. It's pretty awesome — 7 days ago
Pale lemon with aromas of stone fruits with wafts of blossom, spice & smoke. On the palate rich ripe apple and pear with a touch of zesty citrus fruits, crisp, with vanilla notes. Nice creamy mouthfeel, vivid acidity, medium+ finish ending with citrus mineral and floral spice character. — 7 days ago
typical well made Marlborough nz sauv Blanc.
100% organic sauvignon Blanc.
wild yeast 4 months stainless steel fermentation.
medium + acidity.
tropics, citrus and the greeness. cat pee and everything.
papa who's not a wine lover liked it a lot.
much better as it got warmer.
paired well with excellent tripoli style food takeaway.
tshirshi (spicy pumpkin salad), couscous with beans and chard (tbeha=heaven) and spicy pickles.
family meal blockbuster.

Another fabulous SB from the NZ!! I really love this one! The flavor lingers on your palate! It has just the right level of acidity and a nice mineral flavor. Of course the typical tropical fruit flavor that we adore and expect from Marlborough is chillin’ in this Dashwood! Drink and enjoy! This is a wine that everyone will love! — 14 days ago
