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."

Charcoal Gully (Otago) Sallys Pinch 2014 Pinot Noir

93 Points Excellent Cameron Douglas (Feb 2021)
"Vibrant, youthful and fruity bouquet with aromas of dark cherries and dried raspberry, spices of toasty French oak barrel, a stony earthy quality and youthful complexity. On the palate - powerful, fruity, earthy and dry. Flavours reflect the core of red berry fruits and raspberry, there’s plenty of tannin and acidity for texture with fruit and oak flavours for contrast. Still youthful and can remain in your cellar if you like. Best drinking from 2022 through 2028+. If opened between 2022 and 2024 - I suggest it be enjoyed with food."

4 Stars - Michael Coopers Buyers Guide (2020)
"Still on sale, the deeply coloured 2014 vintage (4*) is a single-vineyard red, hand-harvested at Pisa, in the Cromwell Basin, and matured for 10 months in French oak casks (32 per cent new). Fragrant, mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, it has generous, well-ripened cherry, plum and spice flavours, and a firm finish.``

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 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.

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.

Konrad (Marlborough) 2020 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.

Main Divide (Canterbury) 2019 Pinot Noir

92 Points -  Cameron Douglas MS |
"Aromas of dark berries toasty brown spices of oak. Flavours on the palate of dark cherries and plums, some black currant then vanilla and nut. Fine tannins with a mild chalky texture, a balanced and refined palate with fruit flavours that reflect the bouquet, contrasting acid line and lengthy satisfying finish."

Upon release it is deep ruby in colour. A complex patchwork of both red fruit and savoury aromas unfurl from the glass, with raspberry, cherry, and pomegranate soon giving way to mushroom, leather, vanilla and baking spice. Generous fruit weight is backed by bright acidity and silky tannins that rapidly expand in the mouth. This gives the wine a pleasing tension that excites the palate, creating length and setting up for a rewarding finish.

18.5+/20 points - Candice Chow
91 points and Silver Medal  -  IWSC 2020

The 2019 Holly South Series Pinot Noir ripples with elegance and finesse reflecting the warm growing season experienced throughout the Wairarapa region. Bold aromatic expressions of wild flower, red berries, spice and herb give way to a fresh palate with generous length and graceful oak.

In the winery, the different batches of fruit were processed separately so that the individual characters could be retained. Further complexity was added by incorporating techniques such as plunging and pumping over to ensure optimum flavour extraction from the skins. Prior to fermentation the grapes were left to cold soak for 3 days. Different yeast combinations were used, along with wild yeasts, to add even more depth of flavour. The different batches were then left on skins for 21 days before being pressed off into barrel. This wine also incorporated some whole cluster fermentation, which has lifted the aromatic profile with floral and spice notes. Once in barrel, the wine was aged for 12 months in oak (23% new) before the final blend was put together
