97++ Points - Stuart McCloskey  "Pour the wine for the table and settle back to the hushed silence (such are the incredible aromatics and complexity). Evocative notes of autumn unfurl alongside damson, cinnamon, sweet spice, violets, peony and unmistakable blood orange. The palate exudes grace and charm – I love the glossy feel to the texture with soft pumice textured tannins providing a little yin and yang. Brooding, yes, and certainly laid back in style. Unforced and incredibly natural. The wine has its own voice and doesn’t change its pitch for anyone. The flavour profile follows a similar vein, albeit the fruit component offers a touch more concentration. The earthy tones come across sweeter, there’s a little smoked meat which I imagine will develop with additional bottle age, and the spiced blood orange finish is harmony personified. A beautiful, beautiful wine which is an absolute joy to drink today. Yes, it will age, but I believe this wine is perfect now. Serve on the cooler side and be mindful of the sediment. Served using Zalto Burgundy glassware (not decanted!)."

Zalto Denk-Art Burgundy Glass

Due to further lockdowns in Austria we are experiencing extended delays with our Zalto orders.  

We are currently expecting our next delivery to arrive October 2021.

The Zalto Burgundy glass is recommended for all Pinot Noirs, designed almost specifically for Pinot’s delicate aromas. The aromas of Pinot Noir are often the most delicate, but when revealed can be the most enticing and pretty. The Zalto Burgundy glass is the widest of all the Zalto glasses providing the largest surface area for wine. This allows for rapid aeration, revealing all of the delicate spice, herb, floral, earth and berry aromas to be maximized. The narrower rim holding these aromas for an unparalleled experience of the elegant subtleties. The Zalto Burgundy is also very good for Nebbiolo, especially Barolo.

At the Southern tip of the North Island and a sub-region of Wairarapa is Martinborough. Known for it’s boutique style of winery, Martinborough’s production is dominated by Pinot Noir characterised by its balance between elegance and intensity. As well as Pinot Noir, plantings of several other varieties that reach their full potential in Martinborough’s climate are also found including Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Viognier and Syrah, producers like Dry River are a great example of the quality these varieties can reach. Martinborough has a semi-maritime climate with coastal breezes coming from the east and shelter within the rain shadow of the Tararua Ranges resulting in a cool, dry climate.
