HIGHLIGHTS:

NZ Pinot Noir

I admit to questioning why someone would name a wine brand after something that inherently smells bad, such as a wet jacket.

NZ & International Pinot Gris

After a challenging couple of years for pinot gris in New Zealand we appear to have struck gold with the 2023 vintage.

NZ & International Other Whites

I’m constantly telling people that judging wine is difficult but, let me tell you, they’re not buying what I’m selling.

NZ Sauvignon Blanc

I always feel a tad intimidated when the topic of sauvignon blanc comes around.
