    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
