  • 2012 Seifried Sauvignon Blanc Seifried Estate

    Pale clear golden straw. Notes of grapefruit and passionfruit, lined with white chalky minerals and a distinctive nose of Marlborough grassiness. Slightly floral secondary aromas, with a tinge of honey. Harmonious blend of primary and secondary aroma. Fresh and crisp on entrance, sweet on the initial palate with a nice lemon-lime acidity. The wine transitions quickly into a smooth, dry medium length finish. The finish also features a touch of grapefruit bitterness that is nice, soft and palatable. Overall a zesty, freshing and well-made wine, good with seafood or to drink on its own.

  • 2012 Esk Valley Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec Reserve

    Deep dark garnet with ruby rim. Nose of dark red cherries, cassis, chocolate wif secondary notes of smokey oak. Mildly sweet on the initial, medium body, dusty medium to firm tannins with an opulent chewy texture. Decently smooth transition, a little vegetal adding character to the wine. Finishes off beautifully with an ultra long, dusty, tannic, chewy mouthfeel. Absolutely delicious wine that leaves one yearning for more. A little roughly hewn, but Great value for money.

  • 2013 Ara Sauvignon Blanc Single Estate

    Clear Pale straw. Nose of Marlborough grassiness and green capsicum; secondary notes of grapefruit with a tinge of passion fruit. Refreshing, medium on palate, lightly sweet yet acidity balances out perfectly with the almost creamy mouthfeel. Transition is moderately smooth with a fair bit of complexity, carrying through to a long semi-dry (with a hint of sweetness), grapefruity finish. A beautiful wine jus slightly rough round the edges however one of great value, well rounded and a great aperitif.
