Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc 2001

Rich golden colour, nutty flavours as a result of ageing. Hint of fading tropical fruit on the nose with coconut on the palate. Honestly thought this would be well past its best but has surprised and delighted 19 years on! — a day ago

Te Arai Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2017

8.9

Wine Enthusiast lavished this with 97 pts, and personally, I beg to differ...
As with this varietal, complexity of flavors and perfume come along for the ride. The initial experience on the nose is predominantly notes of Yuzu and tangerine peel. Palate is piercing and close to gunpowder dry. It’s tense and nervy, with a hint of salinity. From a style perspective, if you enjoy CB, this is for you. For me, this is searing, and needs fatty foods to help it relax.

Let me walk my prior comment back and try again:
I already feel bad. Do you need to go there? I feel duped and used. Now I feel a little better.

I agree with the ratings here! Really great white. Perfect for the grilled octopus we had.
Full bodied Blanc. Great balance but nice pineapple overtones.

Conterno Gattinara Nebbiolo 2016

Bästa nebbiolon på länge. Nedtonad men ändå väldigt komplex. Bra syra och inbäddade tannniner. Nedtonad frukt, men rosor, nypon, te, rök, mineral ger en mycket fin helhet. Kan lagras men är riktigt fin nu. — 16 days ago

Coleraine Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2009

On Saturday I conducted a Cabernet tasting at home with 8 mates. The theme was 2009 vintage Bordeaux v Margaret River with this outlier from NZ included. This had leafy minty notes with a touch of coffee. A medium weight palate with a certain hardness which was a negative. Still a good future. Ended up being out classed in the company to follow. I will drink my remaining 6 bottles over the 5 to 10 years. — a month ago
