  • Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2019


    “Ata Rangi’s 2019 Pinot Noir is the whole package. It has a piercing, focused nose, offering clarity of fruit and the backing support of lightly spiced French oak. Reminiscent of fresh yet sweet cherry fruit and woody herbs on the palate, it also reveals a savory tobacco and game note that’s oh-so-Martinborough. The wine sits comfortably in your mouth, like a ball being gently cupped. It delivers excellent concentration, and the fine, powdery tannins coat the palate, leaving you licking the inside of your mouth and experiencing the texture of river stones. The finish is long, fresh and fragrant. Drinking window: 2023-2036. 97 points”

  • Dry River Lovat Vineyard Syrah 2016


    “Already throwing out considerable sediment, the 2016 Lovat Vineyard Syrah became a vibrant purple hue in the glass. Violets and cracked pepper make for an enticing nose, and that’s backed by blueberries and blackberries on the palate. It’s medium-bodied but intense, with just-ripe tannins and bright acids that give the wine a precise, elegant feel and lengthy finish. One of two great Syrahs from Martinborough (the other being Kusuda’s), it should drink well for a decade or more. Drink: 2021-2030. 94 points”

  • Dry River Pinot Noir 2016


    “While the 2016 Pinot Noir lacks the richness and depth of the powerful 2015, it’s more approachable and charming, with black cherries and raspberries leading the way. It’s medium-bodied and silky in texture, with herbal notes and some gentle tea-like tannins, but layered and long on the intricately detailed finish. Drink: 2020-2030. 92 points”

  • Dry River Chardonnay 2018


    “The 2018 Chardonnay is more approachable young than many vintages of this wine, reflecting a warm summer. Hints of toasted almond and nougat accent peach and pineapple notes on the nose, while the medium-bodied palate is silky and fine but more generous than typical, with an appealing round plumpness that only tightens up a bit on the lingering, silky-textured finish. Drink: 2020-2026. 93 points”
