WINE TASTING NOTES:
Giesen Organic Syrah – This limited edition organic Syrah is from the Southern Valleys, from high-density, certified organic vineyards. Every attention is lavished upon our organic vines which are hand tended, picked and sorted. An intriguing, elegant Syrah with violet floral on the nose, followed by layers of dark blackberries and juniper offset by earthy, smokey character framed by a dash of oak and spice.
Dog Point Section 94 Sauvignon Blanc – Pale straw in colour. Pure focused fruit aromas of ripe citrus, white peach, a pleasant fragrance of white blossom. An underlying yeast influence is attained from a naturally occurring fermentation in old oak barrels for a period of 18 months. A complex full bodied style of Sauvignon Blanc with a chalky minerality and fresh herbal influence, complimented by a slightly funky reductive edge.
Zephyr Chardonnay – The colour is bright green, straw. Nose is spice, citrus, lemon, mealy, subtle funk. The palate is texture, phenolics, chewy onion skin and oak spice.
Saint Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc – Elegant, poised aromas of tropical passionfruit and ripe blackcurrant combine with a subtle saline note. Palate: The palate is full and lush with rich flavours of passionfruit, blackcurrant and fresh grapefruit. An underlying salty character leads to a long lingering finish.
Lawson Dry Hills Reserve Pinot Noir – This wine offers a complex array of aromatics ranging from dark, berry fruits through to savoury forest floor characters. The palate is softy and silky with exuberant berry and cherry flavours. This wine has a full mid-palate, good length and a rich, flavoursome finish.
Stanley Estate Albarino – Dry to taste and a full, warm and rounded generous palate. Concentrated flavours of white and yellow peaches, honeydew melons, vanilla, passionfruit and pineapple. Minerality, zesty acidity, and slight oak spice. It has a full and lingering palate.
