Gibbston Valley (Central Otago) 2022 Glenlee Pinot Noir

"Glenlee is a Pinot Noir that comes from a vineyard of one man’s dreams. Californian visionary Gary Andrus has passed on, but his belief in close planting Burgundian principles results in a vineyard legacy: low crops of intense fruit – and sore knees for anyone who works there! The wine is a thrilling expression of site and method." Christopher Keys, Winemaker

Gibbston Valley (Central Otago) 2022 School House Pinot Noir

95 Points - Stephen Wong, Wine Sentience
95 points - Cameron Douglas MS

Winery description
"All clones were separated into multiple small batch fermentations. With the cool vintage and very low berry count, no whole clusters were included. The fruit’s natural intensity allowed a very gentle cap management to be employed. Following indigeneous fermentation, the wine was pressed to barrel (20% new), where it remained for 10 months before bottling. Typically alluring nose, darker violets and crushed red petal. The palate begins with a demurely lush textural expansion, before snapping through a svelte mid, and strikingly mineral finish. The 2020 School House Pinot Noir will cellar comfortably for 5-10 years."

Martinborough Vineyard (Martinborough) 2021 Te Tera Pinot Noir

93 Points - Cameron Douglas, MS

One of the most popular 2nd tier Pinots around. Worth every cent and always over delivers.

Winery notes
"Te Tera vineyards typically range from 8 – 23 years old and are located within the premium Martinborough growing appellation. Te Tera literally translates from Maori as "The Other.” These wines embody a more youthful, approachable style

Te Tera is made from a selection of  quality home-grown fruit. The resulting wine shows the expertise of an estate that was first to plant Pinot in Martinborough. Ripe and savoury but with nice freshness, this is a serious drop to decant now or age a while... if you can"

Maude (Central Otago) 2022 EMW Pinot Noir

Winery description

"A celebration of two blocks of mature Pinot Noir from the Mt Maude Vineyard. As the name suggests, the blocks face opposite directions. Made in a different style - 100% whole cluster, clone 10-5, often only one pigaege during the ferment - definitely a unique winemaking twist on Pinot production. A bewitching perfume, paler in colour yet full, luscious and complex. Love it or hate it, this Pinot Noir certainly creates some debate."
