Hawkesbridge Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017
At our blind tasting Vic gave this a Gold-medal score and said, "Crushed plums and cherries on the nose. Big fruit on the palate with perfect oak integration. A very smart mouthful of wine."
Gibbston Highgate Estate Dreammaker Central Otago Pinot Gris 2018
The harsh climate of Central Otago with its low fertility soils and careful viticulture has enabled production of a wine with finesse and structure, showing excellent varietal character and fruit purity.
Right Side Of The Tracks Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Bill Brand's Right Side of the Tracks wines are considered legendary and are Coonawarra through and through. Bill's grandfather got off the train at Coonawarra in 1902 and started work at John Riddoch's winery. The family tradition has passed down over a century of Brands and this wine does not disappoint. This Cab Sav has plum and black fruit flavours and a clean lengthy palate.
Ponder Olive Grove Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Lovely combo of greens and ripes - all we love about a multi-subregional blend. A third share of three fantastic sites over both valleys with a portion of barrel ferment included. Blended they create a complete, beautifully balanced and powerful wine.
