Well balanced Pinot from this excellent Marlborough producer. 2017 is a tricky year but still very well balanced for a NZ Pinot. Earthiness is balanced with the cherry fruit which reminds me of an Prince Edward county Pinot. Bought it at the winery (the family owned viticulteurs are awesome hosts, I highly recommend to book a tasting) shame they haven’t released the awesome 2019 vintage. One of the nicest Pinot from Marlborough and it is wired to drink in a camp site! 😂. 😢 where is my cheese plate? — a day ago
What an amazing recommendation from my local wine shop!!
Light gold color. Huge nose of butter and cream. Big wine, with camomile, butter, and just the right amount of acid. Smothers the palate immensely. No way this should be only £20!!!

The nose on this New Zealand Chardonnay is so fresh and green that I thought I had inadvertently opened the Sauvignon Blanc. Grassy, herbal aromas pop right out, with bright citrus, apple and stone fruit following. The palate features lemon, grapefruit and apricot (!) with a racy acidity that adds to the freshness. The wine has some heft to it - thanks to malolactic fermentation - so it plays well in the winter. I’m sure it will be just as welcome in the spring and summer.

This wine’s nose bears the New Zealand standard for Sauvignon Blanc - grassy, herbal, grapefruity and a lanolin note thrown in to the mix. The grapefruit comes on strong on the palate and brings the herbal stuff in through the back door. Acidity is great and the finish is long and full of citrus.

Impressive - effusive evolving nose very complex for NZ SB: big time grassy w/hint of savory herbs, but quickly pivots to green-filtered fruit: pineapple, guava, and lime - tart zesty vibrant citrusy w/out being nervy. They got something really good going on here — 18 days ago
