Main Divide (Canterbury) 2020 Pinot Noir

18.5/20 Points - Candice Chow Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
Deep, ruby-red, faintly lighter on the rim. The nose is gentle full, growing in presence as it aerated, rich aromas of dark herb, interweave, cherries, raspberries and plums, hibiscus and a hint of smoke and spice mix. Medium-full bodied, there is a good concentration of fruit, shows aromas of dark cherries, raspberries, plums and pantry spice; liquorice, subtle smokiness and earth lifted by bright hibiscus floral. Tightly knitted ripe tannin left a velvety mouthfeel. A balanced acid backbone supports the weight of rich fruit, harmoniously lingering to a lengthy, powerful finish. This plush Pinot Noir has great balance and backbone, showing elegance and structure.

4.5 Stars - Yvonne Lorkin yvonnelorkin.com
Made by the folk at Pegasus Bay and named after the mountainous backbone of New Zealand’s South Island, this superblypriced pinot noir boasts a beautifully integrated red fruits and smoky, savoury notes. 40% of the grapes were fermented as whole bunches which injects some succulently chewy stem tannins into the earthy, tamarillo-tastic textures.

4.5 Stars -  Michael Cooper Michael Cooper’s Buyer’s Guide

 

Upon release it is deep ruby in colour. The nose is a brooding amalgam of red fruit and savoury aromas. Tantalising impressions of raspberry, dark cherry and blood orange uncoil from the glass, shot with hints of earth, game, chocolate, violets and sweet spice. In the mouth it is gorgeously styled, rich and savoury on a silky fine palate. Tightly knit fruit and plush velvety tannins are perfectly balanced by a backbone of invigorating acidity that delivers outstanding structure and a lasting finish. Elegant yet powerful, in a way that Pinotphiles crave.

Main Divide (Waipara) 2018 Riesling

92 Points - Cam Douglas
"Distinctive and classic with aromas of pears, apples and tangerines, white roses and wet stone mineral moments. While this is an off-dry style it is hardly noticeable with the core of fruit, contrasting acidity and refreshing almost dancing palate textures. Honeysuckle, ripe tree and citrus fruits, floral and fresh. Balanced and well made, ready to enjoy from today and through 2025+"

A lighter style riesling from Canterbury with crisp acidity and plenty of green apple and apricot flavours. This is a great lunchtime or aperitif style wine

Main Divide (Waipara) 2020 Gewurztraminer

Winery description

"A classic North Canterbury summer then enabled this smaller crop to mature beautifully. Accelerated ripening allowed harvest to take place slightly earlier than usual, and favourable autumn weather ensured the grapes were picked in perfect condition.

The wine is lemon-straw in colour, with intense varietal aromas of lychee, quince, ginger, honeysuckle and spice. The palate is rich and unctuous, yet there remains a lively freshness and vibrancy. Pre-ferment skin contact has added structure and ripe phenolics, giving the wine satisfying length and balancing its off dry finish."

Very fresh, vibrant and fruity bouquet with scents of tropical fruit, fresh cherry and raspberry along with a fruit tea and touch of fresh herb and salty air. Very crisp, salivating fruity, refreshing and dry. Flavours are vibrant and the acidity tickles the palate as it spreads flavour.
