WINE SPECTATOR'S 2019 TOP 100 WINES
Brilliant NZ Pinot Noir makes the prestigious Wine Spectator Top 100 list
The Loveblock Central Otago Pinot Noir, made by Kim Crawford, has made its way on to this list and we could not be more proud. At only $29.99 today, this will run out the door, so you don’t want to miss it!
Intense dark fruit with perfumed violet notes and a hint of oak and herbs. Bright red fruits on the palate, a savoury mushroom layer followed by sweet strawberry notes, with a lingering hint of oak and balanced tannins.
Ranked #46, NZ Pinot Noir shines again
Ranked #1 on the Wine Spectator Top 100
96 / Decanter - Jane Anson "I love this - there's concentrated cassis on the nose with a strong, smoky edging. On the palate the coffee and dark chocolate is clear, a little bitter in an extremely attractive way, leaning against the rich, sweet black fruits. There's no question those tannins are in full play. An excellent wine with a great life ahead. Matured in 60% new oak."
The only Champagne to make the 2019 Wine Spectator Top 100!
One of the best-priced champagnes for this level of quality
Founded in 1785, and oldest of the three Heidsieck houses. Bubbling over with exuberant charm, the Piper NV is drinking particularly well these days.
Ranked #32 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 list
Good example of the new generation of Barossa vineyards: succulent and rich, combining wonderful fruit purity with texture and complexity. A deep core of flavour, notes of cassis, plum, spice and chocolate.
Ranked #53 in the Wine Spectator Top 100 list
Vivid plum, boysenberry, cassis and acai berry fruit, along with a dark edge of tar, baker's chocolate and salted licorice that courses underneath. The long finish lets the fruit play out, keeping singed alder and chai spice hints in the background. Smolderingly seductive.
