    August 10, 2019 - Surprisingly very nice. Didn’t know what to expect initially. Very fresh, grapefruit, lemon and grassy notes but restrained and crisp. Very palate friendly as most of Phinney’s wines. Friends enjoyed it.

    March 30, 2019 - A wonderful expression with defined grapefruit and hay grass. I think that CT member CHRISTINE HAVENS has great notes and quite comprehensive tidbits of the wine story. Bravo to her well written review.

    February 23, 2019 - Crisp, fresh, mineral-y, another great Locations offering. Paired it with a shrimp/garlic/spinach linguine and it was stellar, a great counterpoint to the creamy/peppery sauce. There's a hint, just a hint, of stone fruit, but it's really quite dry overall. Drinking well now.

    May 6, 2018 - Another stellar offering from Dave Phinney’s Locations project, the NZ-7 is fresh, grassy, and quite mineral, owing in part, to the Awatere Valley’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean and the Waihopai Valley’s gravelly soils in combination with a cooler climate. Fresh and elegant, it’s awash in underripe pineapple, boxwood, lemongrass, lime zest, and sea foam. On the palate, a sense of mouthwatering palate tension from an energetic burst of acidity that releases a core of tropical fruit and piquant herbaceousness. 13.5% ABV | Sample
