Why do we love this wine?

We have a tiny allocation of this, and we’re grateful to have it. We look forward to the stories from the lucky few mofos who manage to get some of this in their cellars (or even better, an invite to the main event).  New Zealand’s most famous red wine for good reason, it’s been called NZ’s “greatest red wine” by Raymond Chan (he should know, being a Kiwi resident), “New Zealand’s Grange” by Wine Front, and is considered in the top three wines of the country by robertparker.com. Even Decanter chimed in this year, confirming it as “New Zealand’s most avidly collected red wine”. We’re big fans, too, unsurprisingly. We could go on about it, but let me hand you over to some less biased reviews.

“This superstar label delivers precision, purity and poise with this latest offering. Exhibiting scintillating clarity together with seductive complexity, the bouquet shows red/dark fruit, game, cigar, cedar and violet notes on the nose. The palate is concentrated and focused with stunning fruit weight and intensity, superbly structured by loads of fine, chalky tannins. The wine offers great presence on the palate, and delivers perfect line, length and balance.” - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
