Martinborough Vineyard

Home Block Pinot Noir 2014

This needs a ton of decanting time and partial oxidation to really shine. It almost tasted like Gevrey with fruit. Dark fruit underripe Elderberries touch Anise bark baking spices touch white pepper. — 14 days ago

Ata Rangi

Crimson Martinborough Pinot Noir 2018

So wickedly delicious. A nice old world style PN with a backbone of bright new world crunchy fruit. A nice whole bunch expression of ripe Martinborough fruit from still a cooler temp set of Ata Rangi’s vineyards. My only bottle I was able to bring back from my Nov 2019 trip to all of NZ’s major regions. Good thing I brought back many other releases mwahahahahahaha — 24 days ago

Craggy Range

Te Muna Road Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Yum!! Fantastic Pinot Noir. Only New Zealand can make them like this and Craggy Range is one of the best. Can I say full bodied and Pinot in the same sentence? Earthy spice on a bed of intriguing penetrating vibrant red fruit. So balanced so addictive. — 11 days ago

Les Beaux Cailloux Chardonnay 2009

One of the best Chardonnay I have had. 11 years old but so so youthful. Balanced, fine, focused and sensational complexity. Hints of wheat, beeswax, white peach and oak, it’s just super composed. Such a pity it’s not made anymore. — 4 days ago
