Eradus - Awatere Valley
Succulent fruit balanced by lovely, subtle and flinty minerality. This is a seductively powerful and moreish wine yet understated by its elegance. The nose is all about floral and nettle notes. The finish is long, lively and crisp. A delicious wine that brings together “new world” fruit and “old world” elegance and minerality.
Mahi - Twin Valleys
This wine shows an array of fruit characters, ranging from citrus through to tropical notes. This is complemented by some secondary characters from the natural yeast ferments and some barrel ageing. The palate has an elegant structure with a creamy, textural mid-palate and a long finish.
Decibel - Pacific Passenger
Concentrated pinot noir with cherry/berry, plum, dried herb and floral flavours, with reductive struck flint characters supported by a firm structure of ripe tannins. The wine has certainly mellowed since it was first tasted.
