Ata Rangi (Martinborough) 2019 Crimson Pinot Noir

93 POINTS - Cameron Douglas MS camerondouglasms.com
"Youthful, vibrant, fresh and lively bouquet with aromas of cherries and plums, dried herbs and silty soil layers, a fine lees and wood spice aromatics. Overall - vibrant, youthful and high energy. On the palate - dry, youthful, plenty of texture from tannin and acidity, bright young red fruit flavours contrast the texture and a vibrant youthful mouthfeel overall. Best drinking from 2022 through 2028+."

Winery note
"20 years ago we named this special Pinot Noir “Crimson” in support of Project Crimson, the charitable trust working to replant and preserve native red-flowering pōhutukawa and rātā trees throughout New Zealand.

Crimson is our selection of parcels from younger Pinot Noir vines from our various vineyards on the Martinborough Terrace. In their youth, vines tend to be more fruit expressive, gaining more complexity around 15-20 years.

This vintage has the intensity and structure that we love from Martinborough – complex notes of rose petal, blood orange, sandalwood, tamarind and toasted rice entice aromatically while the flavours of cranberry, cinnamon and bergamot tea align with the soft savoury notes of tobacco to taste. This structure makes for a beautifully food-friendly Pinot Noir."

Beach House (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Merlot Cab Franc

Winery description
"The Beach House Merlot Cabernet Franc blend is a brand new wine in our portfolio. This vintage we trialled adding some Cabernet Franc to our Merlot and low and behold! A new wine was born. The fruit was hand-picked, de-stemmed and fermented separately in small open topped vats where they were gently hand plunged and pumped over to aid in extracting the maximum amount of flavour and colour from the berries. The wine spent 11 months in fine French oak. The Merlot Franc screams black forest cake with loads of dense plums and chocolate. Soft and plush across the palate but with plenty of weight and length, this will pair perfectly with slow cooked beef cheeks. Will drink nicely well into the 2020’s"

Beach House (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Montepulciano

GOLD MEDAL - Hawke's Bay A&P Bayleys Wine Awards

Montepulciano is an Italian grape variety grown in the Abruzzi region of Central Italy. This block of Montepulciano grape vines have adapted remarkably well to the Gimblett Gravels site and the resulting wines have produced myriad Gold medals and Trophy’s to prove it!

Cherries, cranberries and dark chocolate with a touch of cedar are evident on the nose whilst the palate is intense and fruit driven. Bold, bright, boysenberries interplay with cedar and spice coming from the fine grained French oak. Currently delicious, but would easily cellar well into the 2020’s. But who can wait that long? … Seriously?

Beach House (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Syrah

Winery Note
"2019 was an exceptional vintage right across the board, but the one variety that seems to benefit most from these hot and dry vintages is undoubtedly Syrah.
Our 2019 Syrah was handpicked on April 5th in pristine condition with the infamous ‘dimple’ effect (caused by dehydration within the berries) evident right across the Syrah block. Once picked, the grapes were de-stemmed into an open topped fermenter and left to undergo wild fermentation. The wine was gently plunged and pumped over throughout fermentation to aid flavour and colour extraction. The wine spent a total of 27 days on skins before it was pressed off into French oak barrels consisting of 33% new oak. The wine was then left to age for 12 months in barrel

Boysenberries and blueberries alongside subtle cedar and spice are apparent on the nose whilst the palate is concentrated and powerful with a strong dark berry core. This is a strong example of Gimblett Gravels Syrah from an outstanding vintage."

Carrick (Central Otago) 2017 Excelsior Pinot Noir

94 Points Excellent - Cameron Douglas
"Integrating and harmonising well with aromas of complexity and charm, pinosity, fruit and layers of French oak and barrel toast. Flavours of red berries and cherry, baking spices of clove and vanilla and toasty barrel flavours of smoke and new wood. An abundance of tannins adds a chalk and fine dusty texture, medium acidity refreshes the palate, but also carries the flavours of fruit and a fine savoury complexity throughout the palate. Lengthy dry finish, balanced and well made. Best drinking from late 2021 through 2027+."

Only 300 cases made in the best years, this is an intensely rich wine that will cellar until at least 2020 and drinking will give rewarding ongoing pleasure.

Named for the coal seam which was mined during the goldrush and lies beneath the Carrick Vineyards thier finest expression of Pinot Noir. The wine is aged in barrel for 18 months, then bottled without fining. It is contemplative, earthy, and powerful.
