Drumsara Pinot Noir 2012

On release this wine is a classic reflexion of Drumsara’s Pinot Noir, showing dark and wild fruits of cherry, plum, blueberry and marama strawberry, with an underlying hint of spices – thyme, liquorice and vanilla. The palate abounds in deep fruits, supplemented by vanilla beans and dark chocolate. The fine grained tanins and lively acidity give the wine length aging potential. Enjoy now – 2018.

Man O’ War Ironclad Merlot Cabernet 2012

$49.00 $44.10

Predominantly Cabernet franc and Merlot, the nose has aromas of sweet ripe fruit with lifted aromas of crushed red berries and darker cassis with hints of floral perfume from the Malbec and Petit Verdot with a flourish of tobacco and cedar from the Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is vibrant, exuding ripe fruit and a rich texture finishing with supple fine grained tannins. The 2012 Ironclad is a fine example of what Waiheke can achieve in a cooler vintage. It has great fruit accessibility with a powerful structure coated in luxuriant fruit,supple yet powerful. It is an engaging wine in its youth that will reward patient cellaring revealing a refined structure and greater complexity with age. This is our greatest Ironclad yet.

Deep ruby red with reflective brightness. A rich savouriness and red fruits, but also quite aromatic. This Pinot Noir is warm and rich with a luscious medium-to-full body and vibrant acidity. A wine with texture and interest, the Liaison Pinot Noir can benefit from time in the cellar or can be enjoyed now.
