Ata Rangi (Martinborough) 2018 Pinot Noir

Listed in the 2019 Fine Wines of New Zealand list.

5 Stars & 97 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Splendidly perfumed and immensely complex, the wine shows sweet cherry, thyme, floral, cedar and earthy mushroom characters on the nose. The palate displays outstanding concentration and persistency, together with refined texture and flowing mouthfeel, finishing wonderfully long and seductive. It’s multi-layered and perfectly proportioned with a stunning line and length. At its best: 2022 to 2033. RRP $75.00Aug 2020." Drink 2022 - 2033

Bright, succulent, ripe red fruits create an inviting first impression of this classic Ata Rangi Pinot Noir.  As the wine unfolds, delicate floral aromas emerge - think of dark, velvety roses - a fitting image for a wine with such luxuriously silky textural qualities. Tannins are very fine, very supple, allowing the wine to show lovely primary fruit on the nose at this early stage. The long, long finish is laden with fruit weight and intensity that promises rewards from careful cellaring.

Iconic New Zealand Pinot Noir and a must try wine!!

Ata Rangi (Martinborough) 2019 Crimson Pinot Noir

93 POINTS - Cameron Douglas MS
"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."

Black Cottage (Otago) 2019 Pinot Noir

93 Points and Five Stars -  Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
93 Points - Cameron Douglas MS

This ever popular label is super quaffable and easy drinking in style..Made underthe watchful eye of super star winemaker Dave Clouston and always consistent.

From a vineyard in the Bendigo sub-region, the fruit was hand harvested from traditional Pinot Noir clones 5, 115 and 777. The wine was hand plunged with 8% whole bunch before being aged in predominately mature French oak barrels.

With dark purple hues, this savoury pinot noir releases lifted aromas of raspberry and dark cherry with hints of iodine and black olive. The palate is full of kirsch cherry and cassis flavours, umami, liquorice and a sprinkling of dried herbs. A focussed frame and crunchy tannins contribute to a glossy mouth feel and a slightly peppery finish. Pair with chargrilled meats and game dishes.

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.

Winery description
"The Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir is known for its structure and its ability to age well over a long period of time. The 2018 growing season had the hottest growing season on record, with rain just before harvest, it was incredibly unusual and picking began two weeks earlier than normal. The fruit came in looked good and the resulting wines are generous and impressive. This wine is an integral part of what we do and a wine that we feel represents the strong connection we have with our land. The fruit comes from a parcel of vines which are entirely grown on their own roots and are the oldest vines we have on the property. Now 25 years old."

Classic Central Otago Pinot Noir, with good structure, earthy tones alongside red fruit and great balance. Classic, well-balanced, generous.

Giesen (Marlborough) 2018 Clayvin Pinot Noir

Gold Medal - New Zealand Organic Wine Awards

5 Stars 96 Points - Sam Kim Wine Orbit
"Seductively complex and enticing with sweet cherry, mixed spice, game, warm mushroom and assorted nut aromas"

This has to be up there with one of NZ's best Single Vineyard wines...

Southern Valleys, Malrborough, New Zealand VINEYARD HISTORY Clayvin Vineyard, planted 1993, North facing, was Marlborough’s first significant hillside vineyard. The Clayvin Vineyard is organically farmed, high density planted using the competition between vines to reduce vigour, promoting root structure and delivering highly concentrated fruit. Initially taking a long term lease, seeing the potential the Giesen brothers purchased the vineyard outright in 2015. 

Handpicked from the B, C, D F and G Blocks. All fruit was hand-sorted in the vineyard before coming to the winery. Prior to harvest, a small vineyard ferment called a Pied de Cuve was developed, which is then used to inoculate the fruit at the winery, prompting a natural wild ferment consisting of yeast that are specific to the Clayvin vineyard. Minimal cold soak, with a 5 to 10 day ferment. The post-ferment maceration was up to 10 days so as not to extract hard, big tannins. 100% wild ferment. Basket pressed, Matured in 100% French Oak 300L Hogsheads with 29% new oak.

Great cellaring wine, Giesen recommends up to 10 years

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.

Henri Cauvard (France) 2017 Pommard Les Noizons

The Cauvard family has been working the vines for 400 years but it is only for 40 years, or 3 generations, that the estate exists as a winegrower producer. Henri Cauvard, assisted by his son Julien, is the president of ODG "Les Vins de Beaune" Their wines truly represent love and passion for the Beaune Appellation, which they produce so well.

Pommard les Noizons, is a sought after village appellation within the Cotes Du Beaune. Noizons is not a Premier Cru, but its excellent location above Pézerolles merits more than a village classification, the slightly higher altitude giving a fresh and chalky style of Pommard.

Deep red, dark purple ruby, aromas of blackberry, blueberry, redcurrant, cherry stone and plums. Complex and distinguished. Elegant and round tannins. 

Ageing from 2018 to 2026.
