2016 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Top Pick!
2016 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

Fruit is night-harvested, when the temperatures are cool to minimize oxidation, making it easier to manage in the winery.

95 points Bob Campbell: "Weighty, concentrated Sauvignon Blanc, with a mix of gooseberry and red capsicum together with riper nectarine, tree fruit flavours plus a seasoning of nutty yeast lees character. Textural, satisfying wine in quite a complex style." (10/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "A little skin contact here, smells of ripe pear fruits as well as some bright tropical lemon citrus, melon and other tropical fruits, the palate is big on pineapple and passion fruit flavor, peachy through the finish." (10/2016) 91-92 points Raymond Chan: "Very pale and clear colour. This has soft, gentle ethereal aromatics, showing a subtle amalg ...Read More »

95-96 points Raymond Chan: "Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim.

Medium in sweetness and light-bodied, the palate features elegantly rich and succulently sweet flavours of limes and mandarins entwined with white and jasmine florals and a gentle layering of honey.

In the beginning, there was nothing. Then an impish brewer piled a ludicrous amount of hops into a batch of beer.

93-95 points Raymond Chan: "Brilliant straw-yellow colour with lemon-gold hues. The nose is full and lively with bright fruit aromas of jasmine, exotic yellow florals and honeysuckle, along with layers of limes, marmalade, minerals and toast. This has freshness and intensity. Medium in sweetness, the fruit flavours of citrus fruits, yellow florals, honey and toast are rich and concentrated forming a luscious core and very fine-textured line.

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 »

2014 Te Mata "Awatea" Bordeaux Blend Hawkes Bay Top Pick!
2014 Te Mata "Awatea" Bordeaux Blend Hawkes Bay

96 points Raymond Chan: "Very dark, deep, black-purple color, a little lighter on the rim, and youthful in appearance. The nose is fresh and refined with dark red florals entwined with black and red currants and fresh, dark herbs. The aromatics are beautifully pure and grow in depth and penetration in the glass. Medium full bodied, the palate is tightly concentrated with a sleek, intense heart of bold blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit. This has lifted dark red-floral aromatics along with piquant fresh herbs and a hint of leafiness, but the fruit sweetness and richness unfolds, e ...Read More »
