5 Stars / 94 Points - Martinborough Vineyard Te Tera Pinot Gris 2016

scored by sam kim

This is fabulous and delectable, offering ripe pear, floral, nectarine and subtle spice aromas, together with richly weighted palate that is rounded and plush. The wine is immediately appealing and delivers lovely fruit purity, leading to a superbly long, silky finish. Wonderfully harmonious and satisfying. At its best: now to 2019.

MARTINBOROUGH VINEYARD HOME BLOCK PINOT NOIR 2013

Vibrant in colour, with effusive floral aromatics, this wine's seductive fruit presence is matched to a fine, deftly managed structure. "The fruit develops through the palate," noted John Comerford. "It's beautifully balanced and persistent in flavour, texture and structure." For John Saker, the red and dark fruit, and tannin finesse, all spoke of place. "It had Martinborough written all over it."

5 Stars / 94 Points - Te Kairanga Pinot Gris 2016

Scored by Sam Kim

This is instantly appealing on the nose showing poached pear, green rockmelon, floral and fig characters. The palate delivers excellent fruit weight and intensity, while remaining elegant and pristine, wonderfully supported by silky texture and refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2019.
