King Richard II Napa Valley Red Blend 2017

Young and tight with beautiful midnight dark fruit and ample power behind it. Two hour decant required, at a minimum, likely closer to 4-5 recommended at this point. Hold ‘‘em if you’ve got ‘em - long, long life ahead for this one. — a day ago

Te Mata Estate

Cape Crest Hawkes Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Very pale lemon in colour. Aromas of gooseberry, citrus blossom and barrel ferment characters - a bit toasty and nutty. Blended with a touch of Semillon and Sauvignon Gris. On the palate peachy notes - fulsome in the mouth. An excellent wine, all the better for the oak maturation. Richard Heming MW said of this wine “could be Graves or Pessac Leognan”. I really enjoyed this - from one of New Zealand’s best estates. — 6 days ago
