    A much richer Pinot Gris with not just lime but with nutty and woody hints. With some residual sugar, this put Dress Circle into the off-dry category.

    In general, NZ Sauvignon Blanc does not come across as a complex wine. The Starlet was surprisingly much intense, rich and heavy in texture. Aroma notes that I wasn’t able to identify were listed as snow peas and hint of sandalwood spices. If you don’t like Marlborough, give this a try.

    Unlike those I have tasted from Marlborough, this was more subdued on the fruits but contained a tinge of meaty smokiness giving a savoury sense. Balanced with a medium amount of acid, it reminded me of another Pinot Noir from Australia’s Mornington Peninsular.

    Fresh with some cool stone touch, vibrant citrus, suitably sweet but not pungent. Kerosene note always put me off, so fortunately this baby doesn’t have that. Keeping some residual sugar of 25 grams per litre, this was a happy Riesling in the medium sweet category.

    Slightly woody with the ripeness of black fruit, quickly detected hints of ‘stemmy’ herbaceous, which added a nice complexity to the aroma. The palate is well-balance between acid, tannins and the richness in flavour. Its Bordeaux expression easily puts it amongst the ranks of French Cru Bourgeois when tasted blind. A premium wine that can stand the test of time – easily between seven to ten years.

    Prominent herbaceous notes that were fortunately not overwhelming, initial impressions showed restrain on the aroma, and presented grainy raw edges on the texture. After a significant amount of aeration, the tannins mellowed and nicely displayed the aroma of the cranberry’s and strawberry’s red fruit ripeness.

    Pretty rose with freshness of orange blossom with red fruits notes. Slight hint of stony mineral. Dry, soft tannins with bright acidity to freshen up the palate.
