WINE TASTING NOTES:
Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc – Imagine yellow-fleshed peaches, rock melon and blackcurrant – a sponge cake with lemon icing, chamomile and hints of rose petal. This is a delicately perfumed and deliciously ripe-fruited interpretation of Marlborough sauvignon blanc. The palate is both subtle and textural, showing considerable ripeness and concentration, with a crisp and long, juicy finish.
Te Whare Ra Pinot Gris – This wine is finely structured with great purity & length of flavour and a lovely fleshiness. Lifted aromas of nashi pear, raspberry, red apple and white florals follow on to flavours of the same along with savoury undertones which are balanced by fine, supple texture and lingering minerality. This release is a dry style which has concentration, balance and great texture with layers of flavour.
Marisco The King’s Bastard Chardonnay – The cool climate nature of this wine is stated by aromas of nectarine, lemon pith and underlying oak. The palate starts strong with stone fruit flavours backed up by a subtle creaminess. Secondary characters of flint and toast help to create interest on the palate while a typical Marlborough acidity draws out the palate with a salivating finish.
Astrolabe Rosé – Colour is a delicate shade of rose gold. The aroma is of Quince and rhubarb crème brûlée, rosewater and bottled stonefruit. The palate is a medium-bodied dry wine with round, mouth filling flavours of crab apple jelly and quince paste.
Nautilus Southern Valleys Pinot Noir – The Nautilus Pinot Noir is dark ruby in colour. The nose reveals lifted floral aromas, ripe wild blackberries, cherries and spices. The palate is medium bodied with good structure. Refined and balanced, this elegant wine shows good intensity and a lengthy finish.
Stanley Estate Lagrein – A quality, fruit driven wine, with a palate of Black Morello cherries, red plums, hints of Liquorice, tobacco, leather and vanilla. Soft on the nose, the effect of the oak maturation is subtle and noticeable, giving the wine balance, depth and structure with strong silky tannins and a spicy finish.
