Bilancia Hawke's Bay Syrah 2010

"Voluptuous, supple and fleshy with pristine blue/blackberry, dark plum and floral perfume. The palate is superbly ripe while remaining impeccably balanced with silky tannins."

Mud House Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

"Beautifully ripe and seductively styled, the bouquet shows dark plum, cherry and game aromas. The palate is richly textured with supple tannins."

Mud House South Island Pinot Gris 2010

"A gently framed wine displaying lovely stone fruit and pear aromas with a hint of mixed spice. It's succulent on the palate with a touch of sweetness and a refreshing crisp finish."

Mud House Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010, Casey's Road

"An elegant bouquet with subtle cherries and spices, while the palate has finesse, seamless fruit and tannin harmony."

The Millton Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2009
