17/20 4 Stars Raymond Chan

What a lovely little package this is. Winesale office was totally won over. It wasnt just us either looking at its medal collection!

Made by the clever fellows at Te Pa wines, the Koha range is 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 generous, soft and sluggable Pinot, look no further!

Pond Paddock (Martinborough) Pinot Noir 2014

3.5 Stars Bob Campbell 4 Stars Raymond Chan

3.5 Stars Bob Campbell 

4 Stars Raymond Chan

"Moderately deep ruby-red colour with purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. This has a softly full and deep nose of ripe dark red berry and black cherry fruit entwined with aromas of spicy plums and complex nuances of herbs, violet florals, earthy spices and mineral elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is soft, rich and weighty with plenty of deep flavours of ripe dark red berry and plum fruit, with liquorice, dark herb, earth and spice notes. The fruit is sweet and ripe, and balanced by grainy tannin structure, lending a fulsome, textural mouthfeel. Some alcoholic power underlines the fruit and soft acidity adds to the gentle drive. Spicy plum and oak, with earthy layers are carried to a soft-textured, very long, sweet finish. This is a fulsome, sweetly rich Pinot Noir with dark berry, spicy plum and earthy flavours and a grainy, textural palate. Drink over the next 5+ years"

Daniele tends the vineyard with the assistance of Simone Amorese, a winemaker from Italy who lives on the property, and Paul Mason has been contracted to make the Pond Paddock wine. In 2014, the 4,000 vines yielded 6 tonnes of fruit to make approx. 550 cases of wine. The smaller 2015 harvest saw 2.5 tonnes harvested to make around 230 cases

Good ripeness concentration and weight tannins. Pinot noir 2015 shows the characteristics of the 
vintage, fruitiness and complexity body structure who makes the wine long and persistent on the palate. A long storage needed in your cellar.

Porters (Martinborough) 2012 Reserve Pinot Noir

Bright, rose petal colour and hue. Quite bright in the glass, with none of that extruded bottled black Doris plum colour. The bouquet, at this stage, ever so slightly closed, tells you this wine requires a modest decanter and aeration prior to consuming. I would say about half an hour would be ideal. Typical Porter Estate aromas: a floral, cherry and earthy complexity. That “French” type complexity we love as it harmonises beautifully with game and cheese. There is a redcurrant, cherry and petal delicacy.


Terrace edge (Waipara) 2016 Pinot Noir

4 1/2 Stars Winestate magazine

NZ Organic Vineyard of the Year (2018)

5 Stars Raymond Chan

5 Stars Sam Kim

This Waipara winery has been called the one to watch and they really are. 

Very low cropping levels result in a fruit driven, concentrated wine with the lovely velvety texture which makes this variety so famous. Hand plunging is carried out to achieve delicate extraction of colour and flavour from the skins, before at least 10 months maturation in French oak barriques. During this time it undergoes natural malolactic fermentation in small vats with indigenous yeast.

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 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, French-style cassoulet.


Johner Estate (Wairarapa) 2017 Pinot Noir

Pegasus Bay (Waipara) Pinot Noir 2015

Top class Waipara producer

96/100 James Suckling
Super vibrant with plenty of earthy forest floor aromas as well as toasted spices.  The palate reveals a core of pristine dark cherry fruit flavor, beautifully judged ripe tannins and a level of effortless depth that singles this out as a consistently great New Zealand pinot noir.

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 in wine in New Zealand and wine in the Caterbury region. The first vineyards planted in 1976 and Pegasus Bay established in 1986. 

The wine has a vibrant ruby appearance. The bouquet is packed with red and dark fruit, (raspberry, pomegranate and cherry), with hints of pepper and spice. Layered beneath there are also savoury notes that speak of grilled game and black olive tapenade. The palate is satisfyingly concentrated with fine grained tannins, however there is a refreshing minerality which ensures the wine remains tight and focused, with a lasting finish. A slightly reduced time in oak has resulted in a harmonious style, one that that is mouth-filling yet elegant


Torlesse (Waipara) Pinot Noir 2016

NZs most exciting region, Waiparas oldest winery

The 2016 is looking fantastic. Both Juicy and savoury this is mouthfilling and ridiculously smooth. Aromas of black forrest fruits, forrest floor and a waft of balsamic. Depth of flavour and beautiful light spiciness, flavours of cherry compote and more forrest floor notes. Soft and long stretchy tannin structure. What an awesome little PN!

Akitu A2 (Otago) Pinot Noir 2017

91/100 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

94/100 Points Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier

Moderate intensity garnet colour to the edge with density. Plummy dark fruit with considerable depth and concentration, complemented by subtle airy herbs with a sprig of thyme and integrated brown spice overlay. Aromatic complexity and density with lift and bright cherry like fruit. These are expansive and vibrant aromatics.
The plummy fruit theme continues with a plush entry noteworthy in its concentration and generosity that builds as it progresses over the palate. Silky tannins and bright but supporting acidity give vitality and energy. The uniqueness of the vineyard marks the wine with a powerful core of juicy fruit that holds things in a fine balance between richness and lightness. Savoury exit with length.

As usual, there is so much to enjoy about this blend as a youngster, but it will be hitting its straps at 3 years with subtle complexity evolving across the fruit, but why wait?

Cellaring – 3 to 7 years

Food – Duck Pancakes, BBQ Duck, Panang Duck curry, Duck a l’Orange, Confit Duck, just Duck and plenty of it. Salad not required.

Winemaking later led Simon and his family from Te Kauwhata to Gisborne, where he specialised in Chardonnay, and eventually to Marlborough where in 1996 he and his wife Jane Forrest-Waghorn joined with old friends Paul Davenport and Sally Lewis to have a go at their own label…and so began Astrolabe. Today they work with a number of growers scattered all over Marlborough, from Awatere valley to the Kekerengu coast to the Wairau Valley, developing a wide portfolio of iconic wines that celebrate the varieties and terroirs of Marlborough.

Here is a stunning single site Pinot Single vineyard Pinot Noir from Astrolabe.
