96 points Bob Campbell: "Selectively hand-harvested from old vines, bunch-pressed and fermented. A weighty riesling with lime, mineral, apricot, tree fruit and toast flavours. 5% botrytis with sweetness (54 g/l residual sugar) supported by lovely acidity but only very subtle honey character." 95 points Raymond Chan: "Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is elegantly concentrated with a firm and intense nose of white florals and subtle lime and citrus fruit notes, along with distinctive saline and mineral notes. This is tightly bound and shows wet-ston ...Read More »

2015 Corofin "Cowley Vineyard - Main Slopes" Pinot Noir Marlborough (Previously $30)

91 points James Suckling: "This carries some more floral notes but is leafy too with violets and undergrowth — all in a very fresh state and all cutting into bright red-cherry fruits. Tannins are nicely stated. They hold well." (3/2017) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cowley Family Vineyard Main Slopes Pinot Noir is a silky, medium-bodied wine with bright acidity and wonderful purity of fruit. Hints of woodsy spice surround cherry and berry flavors that never seem sweet or confected, instead remaining firm and savory. I could see this evolving well for up to a decade. (JC)" (5/2018) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Offers dense notes of sp ...Read More »

2015 Dog Point Pinot Noir Marlborough

97 points Bob Campbell: "Rich, concentrated pinot noir with ripe plum, black cherry, liquorice, spice, anise and nutty oak flavours. A powerful wine that's a pleasure to taste now but has the potential to develop well in bottle." (10/2017) 96 points James Suckling: "Impressive red-cherry aromas precede great depth and structured, handy tannins that pull real flavors out of the wine and coat the palate. This holds fresh and rich darker cherries and red plums long into the finish. Regal pinot with soul and swagger. Drink now to 2025." (3/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aged in 40% new French oak, Dog Point's 2015 Pinot Noir is a pristin ...Read More »

2017 The Hermit Ram Skin Fermented Sauvignon Blanc North Canterbury (Natural)

Winemaker's Notes: "This wine is an extension of the Nattura Sauvignon Blanc process. The wine is destemmed and fermented on skins for a month. The skins are not worked hard, they are included in order to gain all the aromatics possible from the fruit, and to promote a fine thread of phenolics to keep a tension and length in the final wine. Bottled straight after malolactic with no Sulphur addition, this wine is almost in the rawest form possible. It is cloudy and this adds to the overall textural experience."

2016 Quartz Reef "Bendigo Single Vineyard" Pinot Noir Central Otago (Biodynamic)

Raymond Chan: "The nose is firmly concentrated with a fine and intense core of dark-red cherry and berry fruit, entwined with raspberry notes, red florals, dark herbs and notes of liquorice and minerals.... This is a rich and sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with dark-red cherry, berry and raspberry flavours, a concentrated palate and plenty of fine-grained tannin extraction with a vibrant finish." (10/2017) K&L Notes: Tasting Notes from the Winery: Divine ruby red in colour with intense cherry and berry aromas. Rich on the palate with dark cherry, subtle floral and herbaceous notes. Exce...
