Riper than their regular bottling with a bit of guava, nice spice and a touch of roasted chili. Bright, dry and firm on entry with nice lime fruit up front followed by a hint of tropical fruit. Round, slightly grassy and showing a bit of currant fruit on the back end. A nice mineral wash with the fruit on the finish. 87pts

Some ash and sun-dried tomato greet the nose along with black currant fruit and some weediness. A bit murky on the palate, with dark and fairly intense flavors that seem a bit muddy and indistinct. There's some nice, slightly jammy black cherry fruit on the mid-palate and some cocoa and mocha oak notes as well before the oak, burnt and slightly bitter flavor takes over on the moderately long finish. This feels a bit too extracted. 82pts

A bit woody on the nose, forest floor red currant, Christmas spice, sandalwood, tea, a bit chunky, a bit sweet up front, nice rose hip accent with a shading of bitter orange oil up front over rather black cherry almost black currant fruit, more forest floor emerges on the midpalate, a little grapefruit character on the slightly compact, slightly extracted finish. This needs another 2 years 91pts

Sweet tart on the nose with some compost, herbaceous notes over a bit of pickle barrel. This is fairly low in acid, sort of lying across the palate with a nice low intensity core of blueberry and sour cherry fruit that leads to a short, slightly drying finish. 84pts

Very complex Pinot.

Love this wine. The liquor store, where I moved to, didn't carry it, so they brought it in for me. They decided to put a case on the shelf and they haven't been able to keep it stocked since. You can't beat the price for a 1.5L bottle.

Funky nose, with sulfur and formaldehyde in the aroma. Very distinctive, but not too unpleasant. There's a nuttiness and chocolatiness hiding there. The mouth is somewhat sharply acidic, with an astringent bitterness. Tart raspberry finish.

Nice mix of chocolate and tobacco in the nose, very even. The mouth is fairly gentle, with indulgent red fruit and dark chocolate overtones. Really easy to please

8 months aging in barrel and 8 months in tank. Med ruby colour. Clean, med+ nose of cherries and strawberries. There is some pretty fruit flavours here that are true to Pinot Noir, but the tannins are a little too subtle for my liking. Drink now. 86/100.

This is the kid on the tricycle. The entry level wine is a simple, med-bodied Pinot Noir with aromas of raspberry, plum and strawberry. Slightly smoky. Clean sweet fruit flavours, refreshing acidity and fine tannins. What more can you ask for for under a tenner?! Drink now. 85/100.

A final step up in quality and price, the Ocio label is the further cream of the crop slice of the 20 barrels. Med+ ruby purple colour. Clean, youthful med+ nose of blood plums and dark strawberries. Med+ bodied wine with plush rich fruit flavours, but unlike the other wines is much more masculine in structure. There is good cleansing acidity, and the continual trend of soft tannins persists. Nice. Drink now – 2018. 91+/100.

The strong Pacific Ocean influence and red clayish soils concur to foster this refreshing, crisp, pale yellow-green wine. In nose, very fine grapefruit, white flowers and citric hints combine with a perfect mineral character. It's an expressive Sauvignon

Rich and deep bright red color with a complex and developed nose that is governed by sweet wild fruit aromas, where notes of cherries and berries are enhanced by slight toasty hints. This Pinot definitely has a personality of its own. It's tasteful, with soft tannins and an excellent structure.

This citrusy white has a pleasant grassy undertone to the white grapefruit pulp and light tangerine notes that stretch out in the cream-tinged finish. Drink now.

A fine 2011 sauvignon, this is fresh and light with subtle varietal scents of herbs and citrus. The wineandrsquo;s acidity pricks the tongue with a gentle tickle. An aperitif white to serve with sautandeacute;ed prawns.

Very friendly, with effusive cherry and licorice snap notes backed by a lively finish. Drink now.

Cool scents of strawberry and tealeaf fill this soft, light pinot noir. For smoked salmon.

Winemaker's Notes:

A Sauvignon Blanc of organically grown grapes with a young, green coloring. The nose displays citric and white flower aromas with mineral hints. The wine is balanced, juicy and fresh in the mouth, with great acidity and a long finish.
