~ Buy Six and Pay $80 net each ~ Lands Tuesday 4 Feb "An expressive and relatively densely fruited nose features raspberry liqueur, kirsch, plum, spice and floral elements. There is a really lovely palate impression to the classy middle weight flavors, thanks in large part to the very fine grain of the tannins. Notwithstanding the refinement of the mid-palate the finish is dusty and serious though not particularly austere and I very much admire the balance and overall sense of depth. Excellent." 90-92 Alan Meadows Burghound Drink 2020+

Wine Advocate 91 points. Completely destemmed and raised entirely in concrete, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Domaine Nicolas Boiron is a serious Côtes du Rhône. The blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 5% Cinsault is full-bodied and rich, with hints of tar and black olive layered over ripe black cherries. A bit of licorice emerges on the long, silky finish. Drink this beauty over the next 5-7 years. JC Sept 2018.
Darling Cellars Capeman Sauvignon Blanc opens up to aromas of green fig and tropical fruit such as watermelon, passion fruit and pineapple. These flavours follow through on the palate and are supported by a vibrant acidity that keeps the palate fresh.
Gold Medal, NZ International Wine Show, 2019. Sam Kim - Wine Orbite - 93/100 Made by the team at Rockburn Estate in Central Otago. Lightly oaked style bursting with fruit from the first sip. Winery Notes: Our Devil’s Staircase wines are inspired by the winding road leading from Queenstown to Kingston along the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Sourced from several Central Otago vineyards, the Devil’s Staircase Pinot Noir takes the willing down into the realm of decadence and Bacchanalian delights. Here, everything is pleasure spiced up with a bit of naughty. The unrelenting Central Otago environment tortures the vines whose twisted limbs produce...

WAS:$240 - James Halliday 96 points. "Good hue; blackberry, blackcurrant, earth and dark chocolate all coalesce on the medium- to full-bodied palate, which has outstanding texture and structure, oak and tannins precisely controlled; 20 years cellaring suggestion on front label seems remarkably modest. Only available in magnum" Cellaring potential 20 years.
James Halliday 95 points. "Quartz-green. Complex nose of flint, white flowers and nectarine leading to a palate with grapefruit, more stone fruit and spicy notes from fermentation in oak. The acidity is just right, neatly tying all the flavours into the seamless texture." Wine Companion The Rock of Solitude is a special place in the Ironcloud vineyard, a single flat rock facing west, overlooking Geographe Bay in Western Australia. A Chardonnay bringing together four classic Burgundian clones. A generous palate featuring flavours of stone fruit and pear. Time on lees has resulted in a velvety texture which is well balanced by the fresh...
James Suckling 96 points. Some richer, darker and deeper fruit character with plums, blackberries and a dark, earthy streak. The tannins are more upright, more elevated, and the fruit is richer and darker than in the Labastida. This has real presence, grip and energy. Try from 2021. JS August 2018. This is a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano from Rioja. Crianza.

James Halliday 95 points. "The tannins at this stable, evidenced by the top tier reds, are illustrious. This is no exception. fine-grained and woven across a seam of sage, bouquet garni and gravel. Texture, so fine. Currant, plum, pencil shavings and graphite, too, yet it is the structure uber alles that draws me in and keeps me coming back for another glass. A tapestry of complexity."
