90 points Wine Spectator: "*Smart Buys* Crisp lime, grapefruit, passion fruit and lemongrass flavors show accents of fresh ginger. Smooth and succulent, especially on the finish. (MW)" (2/2016) Jancis Robinson: "Fruit is 60% Awatere Valley, 30% Wairau Valley and 10% Kekerengu Coast, which is further S of Blenheim than Awatere - cool but benefiting from warm sea air so that it has an early budburst but is late to ripen; some limestone. RS 1.4 g/l. Both grassy and stony on the nose, raising expectations of a tight, dry wine but on the palate it is richer with green-fruited ripeness. Plenty of fruit fla ...Read More »

2013 Misha's Vineyard "Starlet" Sauvignon Blanc Central Otago (Elsewhere $20+)

93 points Bob Campbell: "30-40% of grapes from low-yielding vines were barrel-fermented to produce a fruit-driven wine with a strong emphasis on texture. Intense stone fruit flavours with a strong mineral/chalk backbone. Bone-dry Sauvignon which should develop well with moderate bottle age." (3/2014) 91 points Raymond Chan: "Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on rim. The nose is elegant and restrained in fruit expression, showing subtle green stonefruit and hints of tropical fruits and nuances of fresh herbs, along with a minerally, chalky density. Dry to taste, fine te ...Read More »

2012 Momo (Seresin) Pinot Noir Marlborough (Previously $18)

Decanter: "Appealing scented Pinot Noir with impressive depth of flavour suggesting dark cherry, violets and spice. Smooth-textured wine that’s deliciously drinkable now but will continue to offer pleasure for many years yet. Good value at this price." (8/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(aged in old barriques for 11 months): Pale red. Musky aromas of redcurrant and strawberry, with a complicating note of game. Dense, moderately rich and juicy, showing lovely lift to the flavors of red berries and spices. Finishes a bit dusty and dry, with a firm tannic spine and lingering spice character. (ST ...Read More »

93 points James Suckling: "Looking attractive and slinky in 2012, this has ample dark-berry and cherry fruits on offer, with a fine sheen of sappy undergrowth and oak spice. The palate's smoothly resolved with flowing, supple tannins that are drenched in bright berry flavor." (10/2014) 90 points Bob Campbell: "Attractive Pinot Noir with red cherry, blueberry, spice and vanilla flavours.

2015 Te Mata "Estate" Gamay Hawkes Bay

90 points Bob Campbell: "50% of the fruit was fermented using carbonic maceration. Fragrant, dark cherry and anise flavours, with a slightly confected carbonic musk/maceration character. Appealing fresh acidity with soft, delicate tannins. Deliciously drinkable wine with character. Deserves to be served slightly chilled." (2/2016) Jancis Robinson: "50% carbonic maceration. Young, bouncy cherry fruit with a touch of rubbery reduction giving a certain snap to the nose. Loads of floral character too. Much better than the Fleurie I threw away about an hour ago! Soft palate, modern and smooth, a well sc ...Read More »

2010 Rippon "Rippon - Mature Vine" Pinot Noir Lake Wanaka Central Otago (Biodynamic)

Very, very fine and structured. Better in 2015." (12/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This red shows good depth and concentration to its flavors of black cherry and blackberry, featuring notes of star anise, slate and white pepper, with fine-grained tannins. The lengthy finish goes on and on. Drink now through 2025. (MW)" (6/2014) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep ruby-purple in color, the 2010 Pinot Noir is scented of red currants, wild blueberries and black ber ...Read More »

The nose is elegantly concentrated with firm and tightly packed, intense aromas of dark red cherry fruit with raspberry elements, layered with whole bunch dark herb nuances. The whole bunch complexity is harmoniously integrated, and liquorice notes emerge in the glass.

2015 GeorgeTown Pinot Noir Rosé Central Otago

94 points Bob Campbell: "Soft, subtle and silken Rosé, with flavours of crushed strawberry, watermelon, summer berries and a hint of rose petal. A gentle, charming wine that demonstrates considerable power through its lingering finish." (12/2015) K&L Notes: About the producer from Raymond Chan: "The GeorgeTown Vineyard label shot to fame when the 2007 Pinot Noir was awarded the Champion Exhibition Red Wine Trophy at the 2009 Air New Zealand Wine Awards.
