NEW ZEALAND tasting notes
Find our favorite tasted wines in each vineyard. Of course it’s very subjective, and everyone has its own preferences. It also depends on the moment of the day, the food you eat with, the people sharing this special moment and many other things!
Cloudy Bay, Te Koko, Sauvigon blanc 2015
We really liked this sauvignon blanc, with a nose of exotic fruits (pineapple, mango) and a real length in the mouth. We liked the fresh and balanced attack with grapefruit and lemon notes and the evolution is fruity and tasty! We loved the slightly woody finish.
Cloud Bay, Pinot Noir 2016
We loved its very aromatic nose, with aromas of almost candied red fruits (strawberry, cherry), as well as chocolate and caramel! We also have a light woody aspect that adds complexity to the wine. The tannins are supple and well integrated.
TE WHARE RA
Te Whare Ra, Riesling 'M', 2018, single vineyard 5182
We loved this wine, different from the French Riesling but with beautiful notes of flowers (rose), lime, and lemon as well as a bit of petrol on the nose. We liked the amazing grany apple flavours on palate. A good balance between sweetness and acidity
Te Whare Ra, Pinot Noir, 2016
We appreciated the pronounced nose of ripe plums and the firm tannins. We loved the fresh red berries aromas (Raspberry, and cranberry). This wine has a good and long after taste.
Stoneleigh Chardonnay 2017 Rapaura séries
This wine has a lovely smoky and pop corn taste! We loved the amazing vanilla and butter taste and the nice smoothy mouthfeel on the palate!
Wild valley rosé 2018 stoneLeigh pinot noir
This rosé is a wild fermented wine, which means that the fermentation occurred naturally: no yeast has been added in the tanks. We have lovely notes of rose petals, cherry, strawberry and we loved its creamy texture! We also have nice walnuts flavours on palate!
Convergence Sauvignon blanc 2018
This white wine has a very good acidity with zesty notes on the palate! It’s a refreshing wine, with herbal and mineral aromas
Tributary Pinot noir 2017
This wine has a great structure with high acidity and silky tannins. We loved the amazing red cherry and plum flavours, as well as the earthy and mineral finish in mouth!
Vipers vineyard, Riesling, 2017
This Medium dry Riesling has complex aromas of lime, white spice and jasmine with earthy notes. We loved the very good balance of fruits, sweet and sour, as well as the amazing notes of ginger and honey!
Mata au pinot noir 2017
This wine is highly perfumed and has an amazing level of complexity: cranberry, raspberry, blueberry and mushroom! On the palate, it’s silky and we loved the rounded mouthfeel and the long textural finish!
Dress Circle Pinot Gris
This Pinot Gris has fresh crisp citrus and pear notes. We loved the honeysuckle and orange blossom flavours in mouth. This wine carries a bit of sugar and has a good length!
The High Note, pinot noir 2016
We loved the lovely aromas of plums, raspberry and strawberry, and the original earthy and leather aromas. This wine has a rich and silky palate as well as a long and smooth finish.
