Aromatic. Lilies, saffron, lavender.
Primary facet I notice first is mouthfeel. Light, airy, and smooth. Silken, for sure.
Almost like the feeling of the characteristic lightness of a crème brûlée or an expertly crafted budino.
Saffron, rose, and apricots. Lovely expression. Beautiful in the light.
Hitting on multiple levels for me. — 8 days ago
What a joy to drink this 9 year old Marlborough Chardonnay in a near perfect spot with little sign of age. This is so bright, fresh, vibrant but carries a depth that I didn’t expect from this region.
Complex palate with white peony, pepper, lemon, grapefruit and mouth watering acidity. The finish is so, so long and couldn’t be more buttery. Like, minutes later buttery. Could this be barrel age, could it be malo fermentation - not sure. But I love it. — a day ago

Dry Rose Cider Wolffer Estate. I would classify this as semi-dry. Very flavorful but not overwhelmingly flowery — a month ago
Pretty nose. Pretty nose. Gardenia, honey suckle, apricot. Nice creaminess with a coating acidity and underripe apricot and honeysuckle coming through. Yum. — 18 days ago
Third bottle this week. Very beautiful. Full on MLF here; round, nutty. Three days on skins. 😍 — a month ago
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.

Color is really light egg white. Nose of flowering note, light honey, crayon, spice, nectarine, and ripe pineapple. Nose is decent with tropical fruits rhythms. Taste follows the nose with addition of zest and nice acidity. Good balance of sweetness fro the fruits and honey mix with quality acidity. Aftertaste is also medium long with more zest, and flowering note. With this price tag, you can hardly beat it. — 17 days ago
