2013 Elephant Hill "Hieronymus" Bordeaux Blend Hawke's Bay

100 points Raymond Chan: "‘Hieronymus’ means ‘one with a sacred name’ in Greek and Latin.

Very dark, black-hued, vibrant purple-red colour, very youthful in appearance. This has a finely proportioned, tightly concentrated, smooth and silky presented nose of ripe blackcur ...Read More »

2013 Greywacke Pinot Noir Marlborough (Elsewhere $40+)

97-98 points Raymond Chan: "Marlborough Pinot Noir is severely under-recognised. Some superb bottlings have emerged over the years. Fromm, Villa Maria, Auntsfield, Saint Clair, TerraVin and Te Whare Ra to name a few. The Greywacke is another one up there. At present about 20% whole bunch. Maybe more can work well? Moderately dark ruby-red with slight purple hues. This has a full, deep nose of ripe dark raspberry and cherry fruit with an array of soft red fruits and florals, the faintest whole bunch herbal detail, some toasty oak spices. Full-flavoured and mouthfilling layers of fla ...Read More »

2013 Mud House Pinot Noir Marlborough

Bob Campbell: "Reasonably concentrated, vibrant Pinot Noir with raspberry, cherry and spice flavours. Slightly rustic tannins balance sweet fruit to give a moderately drying finish. Offers good value at this price." (8/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep ruby-purple in color, the 2013 Pinot Noir has ripe cherry and raspberry notes on the nose with nuances of dried herbs, lavender and fallen leaves. Light to medium-bodied, fresh and lively in the mouth with just enough fruit and rounded tannins, it finishes medium to long. (LPB)" (12/2014) Wine Spectator: "Marked by plenty of vegetal details of herbs and ...Read More »

2015 Elephant Hill "Le Phant Rouge" Red Blend Hawke's Bay Top Pick!
2015 Elephant Hill "Le Phant Rouge" Red Blend Hawke's Bay

93 points Sam Kim: "A gorgeous merlot, cabernet sauvignon and syrah blend, the fragrant nose shows blackcurrant, dark plum, cedar and mixed spice aromas with hints of cigar and vanilla notes. The palate is beautifully weighted and rounded, and offers silky mouthfeel backed by fine, chalky tannins. Wonderful balance and generosity. At its best: now to 2020." 91-92 points Raymond Chan: "Full, very dark, black-red colour, a little lighter on the rim.

The palate delivers excellent fruit weight and silky texture, beautifully enhanced by layers of ripe fruit flavours and subtle savoury undertones, finishing long and finely dry. Stylish and attractive, and pristine and complex at the same time. At its best: now to 2022. Certified organic." 92 points Bob Campbell: "Elegant and reasonably powerful Pinot Noir with spicy cherry, smoky oak and violet flavours. A firmly structured wine that can be appreciated no ...Read More »

2016 Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

91 points Decanter: "One of the most sought after Marlborough Sauvignons, demand must follow owner Kevin Judd around - he was chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay for 25 years before deciding to go things alone. Intriguing fenugreek seed and bacon fat aromas evolve into elderflower and citrus. On the palate, intense gooseberry and fenugreek dominate, with elderflower and honeysuckle providing some richness, followed up by slight mineral notes. Although vibrant, the acidity is kept in check, making this a well-balanced wine." 91 points Wine Spectator: "Opens with a fragrant floral note, offering high tones of h ...Read More »

2015 Framingham F-Series Pinot Noir Marlborough New!
2015 Framingham F-Series Pinot Noir Marlborough

A wildly complex Pinot Noir from the heavy clay soils of the southern valleys - Marlborough’s primo sub-region of the best Pinot Noir. The wine is fermented with wild yeast and spends a very extended time on skins before resting for 16 months in seasoned French oak. This wine is about layers. Aromas swing back and forth between berry fruits, crushed herbs and ploughed earth. It’s lifted and spicy with lovely interplay between sweet and savory. On the palate the wine has density and power but everything is quite finely delineated by long persistent tannin... Read More »
