Main Divide (Canterbury) 2022 Pinot Noir

94 Points - James Suckling jamessuckling.com
"Very fresh with sliced strawberries, hazelnut, cappuccino, and biscuit character yet always subtle. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a nice acid background running through the wine."

Winery note
"Upon release it has a bright ruby hue. The nose is soft and inviting, slowly unfurling with nuances of tamarillo, pomegranate and gogi berry, interlaced with touches of vanilla, woodsmoke, lavender and an earthy, savoury underlay. The palate is sweetly fruited and supple, with plush polished tannins and a ripe, spice driven mouthfeel. An ethereal and elegant wine, coupled with a rounded body and splash of refreshing acidity that provides harmony and length, flowing perfectly through to its long, rewarding finish."

Deep ruby in appearance with aromas of dark fruit, such as blackcurrents, plums and boysenberries. Layered beneath there are also hints of tobacco, liquorice and cloves.  While the wine is full bodied, the Merlot component ensures it remains smooth and succulent on the palate, with generous fruit weight and soft velvety tannins.

Main Divide (Waipara) 2022 Riesling

Winery note
"Upon release it has a bright lemon hue. A rousing fusion of citrus, floral and flinty aromas tantalise the nose. Zesty notes of grapefruit, lime peel, and quince are melded with jasmine and orange blossom, underpinned with a steely mineral core. The mouthfeel is vibrant and energised, showcasing both richness and an elegant structure. Subtle sweetness is contrasted with zippy acidity that creates a pleasing tension, paving the way for a prolonged and tangy finish. grapes were picked in stages during late March and early April. Some parcels were intentionally left to hang until later so they could be harvested with a portion of noble botrytis. The free run juice was then slowly fermented at cool temperatures to help the wine retain its vibrant fruit characters and varietal purity. During this time daily tasting was undertaken to assess levels of acidity, alcohol and residual sweetness, with the fermentation being stopped once the right balance was achieved. Winemaking intervention was intentionally kept to a minimum to allow the vintage, variety, and vineyard to express itself harmoniously. At all stages, from fermentation to bottling, the wine was handled very carefully to help it retain a little of its naturally dissolved carbon dioxide. This may result in a small amount of spritzig when first poured, accentuating the freshness and liveliness of the wine."
