Aurum’s philosophy is to work as closely as possible with nature.

Mouthfilling, juicy and supple, it has concentrated, small red fruits, perfumes and spice flavours, with finely integrated oak adding complexity, and obvious cellaring potential; open 2020+.

Great value Central Otago pinot! hard to pass up!

“Cherry Block was started in large part to bottle the spirit of many memorable times in Central Otago, especially at the Boyd Family Cherry Orchard in Alexandra. We feel very fortunate that it now gives us reason (as if we needed one!) to return to that special part of the world year after year.”

Gale Force (Marlborough) 2018 Pinot Noir

Ripe red berry aromas and savoury flavours combine beautifully with juicy acidity and crunchy tannins on the palate.

The strong winds of the Upper Wairau Valley of Marlborough often reach Galeforce intensity. The vines find these Galeforce winds very unnatural and they divert all their energy into producing the juiciest fruit with the most flavour for the birds to spread their seed. The fruit is harvested before the birds can get to them

Gale Force from Clark Estate, offering great value drinking from a boutique producer.

Ghost Hawk (Martinborough) 2018 Pinot Noir

Silver Medal - Decanter (under original label)
95 Points/5 Stars - Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (under original label)
5 Stars - Michael Cooper (under original label)
"Estate-grown and matured in French oak casks. Full-coloured, it is fragrant, mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with generous, ripe cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, good tannin support, and a savoury, finely structured finish. A very ageworthy wine, it’s well worth cellaring to mid-2021+."

The Pinot Noir buy of the year! This is Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay under priced for the wine and its pedigree.

Bottled for us by a top Martinborough producer. This comes from a top site that has gone into Martinborough's big name Pinots in the past but is too good for that now. The Vines on this site are low yielding of high quality fruit and are up to 30 odd years old. This is classy stuff, low vigour, low cropping vineyard.  Hand picked, crushed into 2 tonne open fermenters, hand plunged and with gentle use of new oak.

Enticing aromas of dark cherry, plum, vanilla and mixed spices. The palate is wonderfully weighted, supple and delicious.

Giesen Organic (Marlborough) Pinot Noir 2015

Fruit was gently de-stemmed as soon as it arrived at the winery and then added to open top fermenters by gravity. A cold soak for five to seven days allowed the early development of colour and flavour prior to fermentation. Delicate hand plunging of the ferments ensure soft extraction of tannin and colour. After 14 days maceration the fruit was gently basket pressed with the free run wine aged in French oak 300L barrels for 12 months. It then received a further 24 months bottle ageing before release creating superb complexity.

The key to the perfect food match is to find the perfect occasion. When you’re enjoying time with friends and family, serve this wine alongside a decadent, rich dish such as Chinese five-spice duck - or for something European, a French-style cassoulet.

95 Points Bob Campbell MW – The Real Review

92/100 Decanter, Rebecca Gibb
"This has great colour and is beautifully fragrant. It's fresh, elegant yet ripe, with gorgeous violet, blackberry and raspberry coulis flavours. Lovely skin and seed tannins coat the palate like cocoa powder, and there's no edginess evident." Drink 2019 - 2030

The big name Pinot Noir you have never heard of...................

A single site Pinot Noir from Earnscleugh, Grasshopper Rock is on the south side of the Alexandra basin. The vineyard is on warm North facing slopes. 

All the good fruit go into this (probably because they only make one Pinot Noir). Clever winemakers, Pip Battley and Pete Bartle, are top of their game when it comes to making top Pinot Noirs, usually with a $60 price tag.

This has to be one of Otago's best value AND best quality offerings around.

Ripe cherry flavours, spices, powdery tannins and gorgeous lengthy finish. Delicious.

Henri Cauvard (France) 2016 Volnay

Volnay, admired for its delicacy and sappy style. Always been thought of as the most feminine of Bourgogne wines. Though there are vigorous and muscular versions, it truly does stand out among the red wines of the Côte de Beaune. The colour varies from bright ruby to a light garnet.

Aromas are of violet, gooseberry, cherry, and spices. Gamey notes and cooked prune. It has an immediate appeal which, added to a slight natural precocity, means it can be fully open while still relatively young. Fresh, the finish is warm.

Maude (Otago) 2019 Pinot Noir

Listed in the 2019 Fine Wines of New Zealand list (2018 vintage)

4 ½ Stars - Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)

Maude are making waves with their Otago Pinots. This is their Estate wine made from hand harvested fruit, Queensberry and Lowburn vineyards. Very much a family-owned and hand-crafted enterprise. 

Winery note
"The 2019 Maude is sourced from Central Otago’s premium sub regions, each contributing to this savoury, complex Pinot Noir. Aromas of dark cherry, plum and dried herbs team up with a palate that displays layers of dark fruit flavours entwined with velvety but structural tannins. Careful cellaring for 5 years will reward."

93/100 - Cameron Douglas MS

"The flight of Pegasus Bay Pinot Noirs continued to illustrate their burgundy influence, the reds often reminiscent of Morey-saint-Denis" - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, USA

The Donaldson family are big are a influence on wine in New Zealand and in the Canterbury region. They first vineyards planted in 1976 and Pegasus Bay was established in 1986. 

Upon release the wine is bright ruby in colour. There is a teasing array of vibrant red fruit on the nose including raspberry, pomegranate, cherry and plum. Spice and herbal notes, as well as a savoury underlay, add to the wine’s complexity. While the palate has generous fruit weight and velvety tannins, it is balanced with refreshing acidity and a structure that gives the wine classic North Canterbury tension and pinosity.
