2006 Winslow Turakirae Martinborough Red Bordeaux Blend

This wine has become my benchmark for all other top quality wines. Great nose and palate. Who would have thought Marlborough grapes could produce a world class Bordeaux. If only they made more.

This was an interesting bottle, enjoyable and well made but not what I expected. still lots of fruit and holding together well after 10 years. The Shiraz seem to be dominant and has produced a sweet wine for a cab sav blend.

No way the cork was coming out in one piece. Good bricking, dust and leather on the nose. Smooth with medium finish and fine tannins. Very enjoyable wine drinking well now.
