JTW 2019 Marlborough Pinot Gris

A bouquet of fresh and ripe white fleshed tree fruits, white spice of pepper and sweet apple juice. Varietal, ripe and enticing overall. Just dry on the palate with the core of fruit coating the palate. Contrasting acid line adds texture and freshness also emphasising the peppery note from the nose. Balanced even finish, ready to drink now and through 2021.

OTQ 2018 Marlborough OTQ Sauvignon Blanc

This is gorgeously fruited and inviting on the nose showing feijoa, jalapeno, kaffir lime and lemon peel aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that's brilliantly focused and lingering. It's weighty and mouthfilling, yet bright and refreshing, finishing impressively long and delectable. At its best: now to 2023. $35.00. Jan 2020.

JTW 2019 Marlborough Rose

Ripe, fruity, fleshy and juicy, aromas and flavours of sweet cranberry and strawberry, some plum and cherry finish the aroma profile. On the palate - fleshy, juicy, plump and tasty. Lots to like about this wine with summer red berry flavours, super fine fruit tannins and crisp refreshing acid line. Balanced and well made. Best drinking from today and through 202

JTW 2019 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

This intense sauvignon blanc offers a pleasing array of ripe fruit flavours including succulent tree fruit/peach/apple and subtle citrus/grapefruit/lime with a hint of tropical fruits underpinned by refreshing acidity. Strongly varietal wine with a profound sense of place.

OTQ 2018 Marlborough OTQ Chardonnay

Gun flint, sulphide that overrides fruit characters. Lees work evident, palate is full and rich. Nice.

OTQ 2019 Marlborough OTQ Pinot Noir Rose

From the Branken Hill Vineyard this rose coloured wine shows off aromas and flavours of strawberry and red apple skin, cherry jubes and pink candy floss. Fresh, ripe, focused and delicious on the palate with a gentle creamy texture, very fine chalky tannin moments, medium+ acidity and a lengthy balanced finish. Lots to like. Drink now and through 2021.

JTW 2017 Marlborough Gruner Veltliner

This is a fruity, likable wine, with fragrances of honey-flecked pear, peach, white flower blossom and white pepper. The palate is a delicious play between orchard fruit, creamy texture and chalky acidity, finishing on a sweet fruited, peppery note
