Community Tasting Note

  • Callum's Corkers Likes this wine: 92 points

    January 17, 2017 - Screw Cap. Well chilled.

    Still love this NZ Chenin. This bottle the acidity a little fresher, which I liked. So, some variation within same vintage? Loads of white/yellow fruits, a little honey mid way through, lovely acid lilt to finish. Clean. Heaps of super drinkability. Perfect with roast duck. Med-H body.

    VFM...v good, compared to a Vouvray of similar class.

    3/4/17, 1:19 PM - Pretty good value for money, Oregonative, the organic Millton's. Probably my all time fave' Chenin is Gaston Huet from Vouvray AC, but it is about £40 a bottle. Had this week a Marc Bredif 'Classic' Vouvray 2015 for around $NZ 29.00. Good-very good wine but not in Huet's class.
