Supreme elegance! Beautiful colour, with intense and bright reflections.

November 17, 2011
Misha's Vineyard

An old stomping ground of mine was Otago. We never could understand why anyone would live in central Otago. Then we tried the wines…“Misha’s Vineyard has engaged the talented Olly Masters as their winemaker. He combines the exuberantly bold and spicy nose laced with sweet dark cherry and ripe black and red berry fruit one has come to expect…”

Rochford Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir

Mid plum in colour and brilliant in clarity. Nicely restrained but already showing hints of what is to come. Dark cherry fruit is combined with savoury and mocha characters. There are hints of perfume/violets. Sweet dark berry fruit leads into a rich and rounded mid palate. There is a nice balance of fruit and oak, well supported by fine tannins.

Veuve Pelletier Champagne Brut NV: Wine Man Pick

April 23, 2012
Veuve Pelletier Champagne Brut NV

At Last! A French Champagne that doesn’t break the bank & has some Pinot Noir in it for a fruitier flavour profile. Bright golden yellow, with copper tints and persistent bubbles with sweet almond, lime and white peach notes. The delicate palate is fresh and balanced. A light to medium body wine-style. Good toasted-biscuit and red bramble fruit from the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Great aperitif.
