Ara Single Estate (Marlborough) 2019 Pinot Noir

Silver - International Wine and Spirits Competition
4.5 Stars & 90 pts - Sam kim Wine Orbit
Metro Top 100 Winner 

No expense spared Pinot Noir offering considerable value for money. There are many $40 Pinots that don't come close to this!

Offering enticing dark berry aromas supported by savoury, smokey undertones creating complexity. Its soft, subtle palate is alight with bright strawberry flavour intertwined with a rich cocoa finish. 
Harvest The 2019 growing season was legendary, with the hottest January on record and one of the best flowerings in living memory. Due to this unusually hot growing season, plentiful bunches of evenly-ripened berries were harvested nearly two weeks earlier than usual. It was a race against the weather to ensure our grapes were tucked away safely in the winery before the spring rain soaked the vines. The result was beautifully ripe berries with intensely concentrated flavour and well developed tannin and colour. Winemaking Parcels of fruit fermented over 12 to 16 days, peaking at 28°, before the juice was pressed. From there it rested in a selection of French oak, 25% of which was new.

Awesome drinking!

Aurum (Otago) Pinot Noir 2018

Aurum’s philosophy is to work as closely as possible with nature. The vineyard and winery are managed using certified organic practices and they thrive to produce wines that speak truthfully of their origins. Organics is the defining philosophy of the vineyard management and part of an overall goal to achieve continuous improvements in vineyard sustainability and to make better wines.

The grapes were mostly destemmed, cold soaked for 5 days and fermented in open vats with wild yeasts. The wine was matured in French oak barrels for 12 months. Unfined and unfiltered.

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+.

Doctors Flat (Otago) 2017 Pinot Noir

Listed in Air New Zealand Fine Wines of New Zealand list

5 Stars Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, April 2020 
"A deep, velvety pinot noir with cassis, red-fleshed plum, and layers of spice and nutty oak. It’s still relatively youthful but a delight to taste and with potential to get even better with bottle age. It has a classic Bannockburn signature." (2017 vintage)

Buyers pick!

A true underdog, ticks all the right boxes for a wine double this price. Steve Davies made wine for Carrick and Akarua before developing his own vineyard, he also supplies some really big league Bannockburn Pinots. A voluptuous style of Pinot Noir, deeply flavoured and juicy. Laden with flavours of red and black cherry mineral edge and complexity by the bucketful.

If you haven't tried Doctors Flat....you really should.

Domaine Rewa (Otago) 2016 Pinot noir

5 Stars, 94/100 - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 

94/100 - Jamie Goode, UK
This shows pure, vivid red cherry and berry fruit. Finesse and elegance are the hallmarks, with purity, a lightness of body and a spine of grippy tannins. Lovely elegant style.” (Jamie Goode, UK)

Domaine Rewa is a tiny 5.5 hectare vineyard located on the fluvial terrace nestled in the foothills of the Pisa Range. 

Stylish and complex, the beautifully fragrant bouquet shows red/black cherry, floral, dark olive, nutmeg and earthy mushroom characters, leading to a juicy palate that is wonderfully rounded and elegant. It is refined and persistent with gorgeous spicy/savoury nuances.

Giesen (Marlborough) 2017 Single Vineyard Clayvin Pinot Noir

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

Giesen (Marlborough) 2019 The Brothers Pinot Noir

A generous Pinot Noir from Marlborough’s Southern Valleys, with rich dark cherry and tart currant flavours, a subtle spice and elegant floral notes leaping from the glass. A more ‘masculine’ style than the previous year, this vintage’s bold flavours meld with a crisp acidity to provide poise on the palate, and fine grain tannin add focus to the beautifully lingering finish.

Giesen Estate (Marlborough) 2018 Pinot Noir

Giesen Organic (Marlborough) 2015 Pinot Noir

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.

Goldwater (Marlborough) 2016 Wairau Pinot Noir

Gold medal - Air NZ Wine Awards 2017

18 Points - Raymond Chan
"Bright, even, light ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, paler on the rim. The nose is elegant in proportion with a fine, tight core of ripe, dark-red and black cherry fruit with hints of blackberries and dark herbs, and an amalgam of violet florals and minerals. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegant and refined in presentation, with a softly concentrated core of ripe, dark-red and black cherry fruit with notes of dark raspberries and blackberries, unfolding nuances of herbs and florals. The fruit is underlined by light, fine-grained tannin extraction, and balanced by soft acidity. The flavours blossom on the mid-palate and carry to an elegant, moderately long finish. This is an elegant and refined Pinot Noir with dark-red and black cherry fruit with hints of raspberries, herbs and fragrant florals on a fine-textured, softly blossoming palate. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 4-5 years. Clones 115, 667, 5 and 113, all Wairau Valley fruit, fermented with 15% whole clusters to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak" Raymond Chan, November 2017"

Founded in 1978 Goldwater is one of NZ's oldest wine producers!
This Pinot Noir shows the influence of the Wairau Valley's unique climate and complex soils. This wine has vibrant colour and fine tannins ensured by the use of hand-plunging techniques during fermentation. The aromas and flavours are packed with dark cherry, Black Doris plum and savoury spice. The palate delivers silky smooth tannins with a lengthy finish.

Grasshopper Rock (Otago) 2017 Pinot Noir

96 Points - Cameron Douglas MS

Listed in Air NZ Fine Wines of New Zealand 2019

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.

Koha (Marlborough) 2018 Pinot Noir

Gold Medal -  China Wine & Spirits Awards, 2019

3 Stars - Michael Cooper
"The 2018 vintage has lightish, slightly developed colour. Matured in oak barrels (26 percent new), it has decent depth of ripe cherry and spice flavours, fresh acidity, earthy notes and a fairly firm finish." Michael Cooper

Made by the clever fellows at Te Pa wines, the Koha range was mainly for the on premis market but we were lucky enough to get offered this fab little wine. 

Warm and spicy aromas of raspberry and plums, with hints of dried herbs and mocha. The dark berry fruits carry through onto the pallet. This wine is drinking perfectly right now and the tannins are super soft and velvety. Awesome value and a real crowd pleaser. 

If you are looking for a balanced, soft and sluggable Pinot, look no further!

Konrad (Marlborough) 2017 Pinot Noir

5 Stars, 94 Points -  Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Konrad Hengstler began planting vines in Marlborough in 1996, it didn’t take him long to shake hands with the Giesen brothers. Their shared commitment to quality shaped their partnerships across decades, ultimately leading Konrad to pass the baton on his retirement. The Giesen brothers continue Konrad Wines’ legacy, distributing quality wines around the world.

Deep crimson in colour, the nose shows profound ripe fruit characters, exotic earthy spice notes and a hint of toasty oak. In the mouth the wine is firm up front, showing classic black cherry and damson plum fruit with lovely density and poise. The tannins are ripe and powdery giving an impression of mocha and liquorice.Structural acidity gives the wine great length of flavour, allowing the fruit to run its full course through the palate.

Great value and well made Pinot Noir, excellent when enjoyed with soft cheeses, or try it with spring lamb.

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."
