    January 26, 2019 - This was a superb Pinot from the new world. Black currant with a wonderful length to it. Brick colour, nose of dried roses. I am sorry to not have more for ageing and will be buying a whole case next time in NZ

    January 16, 2019 - Angelica Wine Club - New Zealand (Sawa Restaurant, Stanley Street): "Brooding black hued fruit, plenty of spice, toast, leather with time a slightly sour red current underpin and a little stalks Plenty of spice and alcohol on the palate over juicy red fruit, leather and a little tannic burr. Complex but not for me.
    I called Pinot Noir, 2013, Waipara (a lucky guess)"

    October 9, 2016 - Pinotpalooza (Carriageworks, Redfern): slightly stalky stewed fruit, earthy notes…Savoury, unpleasantly tannic - like chewing roots - Nah.

    October 5, 2016 - Six nations tasting (49 King Street Wharf): spicy and dense, quite black fruit and a bit shitty as well…on the palate it's tight, bitter and unpleasant.
