Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2021

I like it! First couple of sips were not great but the aftertaste is really nice and fruity without being sweet. Still nice and refreshing Sav Blanc with just enough grassiness/earthiness. This might become my go-to Sav Blanc — 2 days ago

Chardonnay 2020

Ripe grapefruit, almost peachy - a little funk which blew off. Enough palate cleansing acidity to make this very moreish. A delicious wine which is amazing value at only $21.50 per bottle from one of the best Chardonnay producers in the New World. A big statement I know but try his premium Mate’s Vineyard and see what you think. — 11 days ago

landmark Series Marlborough Riesling 2021

Lemon, lemon zest, green apple, honey, white pepper and a tiny touch of chalk. This is very inviting. The palate is very dry and tangy. The acid drive is strong and the wine could feel almost unbalanced because the acid drive tends to overpower the fruity notes, and there is width and a vivid mouthfeel that goes on for a long time in a fresh and tangy finish. It's good but I believe it could be better along food. I could see myself munching on sushis along this one 🤤🍣🍱 — 16 days ago

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Pale lemon with aromas of stone and tropical fruits with citrus and floral notes. On the palate fresh fruit flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, apple and melon with lemon citrus wrapped in lively acidity, medium length ending with fruit and lemon citrus texture. — 21 days ago

Prestige Collection Pinot Noir 2017

Thought this blind was an aged red burg, so colour me surprised when it was revealed to be a young NZ pinot. Clearly a little more developed than it should be (colour and aromas), but credit where credit’s due, this was quite elegant. Even after the reveal I could not detect that marmalade finish I find so often in NZ pinot’s. This was all red cherries and ripe strawberries, with savoury spices and earthy notes. Perhaps the quality of the oak, which left much to be desired, and rich velvety texture were the only indications of it’s origin. Finished a touch short. There were wines with more intrigue on the table so I didn’t drink much of it, but it definitely wasn’t a bad drop. One to revisit. — 17 days ago
