smells like the asian candy you pick up after eating a nice bowl of pho. you know that green apple/pear/durian candy that’s pungent through the wrapping. also sorta tastes like it in the best way possible with a bit of funk. — 3 days ago

Rippon Vineyard

Tinker's Field Mature Vine Pinot Noir 2014

This is probably the most serious Pinot I had on the trip, no disrespect to the Felton bottles. My heart is kinda with Rippon, and this was a little ruthless to drink this so young, but it doesn’t export to US and I figured it was worth a roll of the dice. Opened 3 days ago and tried each day then recorked. I think oxygen has finally started to subtract after its initial age simulation contribution. But I believe in this bottle and would wish to have it in a few years and with food, instead of in a camper van in cheeky makeshift tasting moments. — 4 days ago

Kora

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Wasn’t sure how this would be after sitting in the wine cooler for six years, but it was very pleasant. Much more floral than a typical Sauvignon Blanc. Wish I’d saved a few more. — 10 days ago

Spy Valley

Southern Valleys Pinot Noir

Some umph with this very good Kiwi Pinot noir. Strawberries, blackberry, floral aroma along with spices. The tannins kept everything tight but smooth. City hall in the background, capped off a great evening. — a day ago

Marlborough Grüner Veltliner 2016

What an amazing Gruner! Tropical from the Marlborough terroir with tiny hints of grapefruit and citrus, but with the smoothness and depth of a traditional Gruner. It’s great! — 11 days ago

Greywacke

Kevin Judd Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

2017 vintage. Drank early May 2019.
Pale yellow with hints of green. Flowers and fresh grass on the nose. Very smooth intake on the palate, minor steel sharpness, lemon and grass. Nice wine.

Savor Collective

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Found this at Pamplemousse. It's not my typical pick, but it's really good and I liked drinking it with dinner. Michael liked it too! I'd like to get it again. — 2 days ago

Villa Maria

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

The 2017 Villa Maria Private Bin Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc shows the expected grassy, herbal nose with tropical fruit and minerals included. The palate is also full of those mineral notes, as well as lemon, lime and guava flavors. Acidity is brisk, and the lengthy finish is fresh and citrusy. — 23 days ago

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Выпит бокал этого совиньон блан на берегу Индийского океана 18.05.18 в ресторане Le Place. Достойное рабочее марльборо по разумной (10 €) за бокал для Сейшел цене. — 9 days ago

Mount Edward

Central Otago Pinot Noir 2011

Got them to sell me an older vintage. Enjoyed this over two nights. This fucker was pure skittles on opening but calmed down and brought some balance to the table on day two. Very fruit driven and almost hard to imagine what it was like on release. That being said, I very much like what this thing is up to, and find it to be a very good value. — 4 days ago
