2018 Mount Edward Pinot Noir Rosé Central Otago

90-91 points James Suckling: "A dry, savory style that has light dried-flower and berry aromas. The palate is dry and textural with good energy and punchy, smooth drive. Grown-up wine." (10/2018) K&L Notes: Coming from a single block of the Muirkirk vineyard, the grapes are picked specifically to make rosé. One hundred percent Pinot Noir grapes spending 2-3 hours on the skins before being drained off, creates a wine of refreshing acidity and a lovely smooth texture. Nothing tutti frutti here.

It's a very dark black-red in colour, and the 63% of Merlot sings out in its soft, seductive black-cherry and black-plum fruits.

2018 TWR (Te Whare Ra) Chardonnay Marlborough

Lisa Perrotti-Brown writes: "Owned by winemakers Anna and Jason Flowerday, Te Whare Ra (TWR) is a small vineyard / winery located in the Marlborough sub-region of Renwick. The 11 hectare vineyard is planted to 7 different varieties and was first established in 1979. The vineyard is managed with a combination of organic and biodynamic practices and both winery and vineyard are both fully certified organic with BioGro NZ. The Chardonnay and Riesling “D” (dry) are particularly exciting, though the Pinot Noir has a lot of character and potential too."

2017 Fromm Pinot Noir Marlborough (Previously $25)

94 points Sam Kim: "Showing poise and restraint, the elegantly expressed bouquet shows sweet raspberry, cherry, thyme and almond characters with a touch of floral lift.

2017 Mount Edward Riesling Lowburn Central Otago (Previously $18)

Super fresh. Drink now. Screw cap. " (11/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend sourced from several subregions, the New Zealand dry 2017 Riesling boasts between five and seven grams per liter of residual sugar.

2016 Dog Point Pinot Noir Marlborough

96 points James Suckling: "Impressive structure and concentration. Terrific complexity in the mix here, too. Blueberries and mixed cherries on the nose and palate with a terrific layering of plush, assertive tannins and a fresh, vibrant kick into the finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

No excess sweetness and certainly no evident oak or alcohol. Well behaved wi ...

Quartz Reef "Methode Traditionelle" Brut Rosé Central Otago (Biodynamic)

93 points Raymond Chan: "100% Pinot Noir, fermented to 12.5% alc. with 5 g/L dosage, the wine aged a minimum of 24 months on lees. Bright, light salmon pink colour with some depth, the bead very fine and persistent. This has a full, solid and voluminous bouquet with deeply packed aromas of bready autolysis laced with strawberry and red fruit notes. This is very expressive of Pinot Noir. Dry to taste and fulsome, with mouthfilling flavors of stonefruits, red berries and brioche, the palate is open and broad, but well-proportioned with weight and depth." ...
