AIR NEW ZEALAND GOLD

TK JOHN MARTIN CHARDONNAY 2015

Congratulations to the team at Te Kairanga on your Air New Zealand GOLD award for John Martin Chardonnay 2015.

"This is a great result with our emphasis on Chardonnay and following on from the recent gold in the New World Wine Awards for the Te Kairanga Chardonnay 2014. Good news for the profile of Chardonnay from the region." John Kavanagh

New Zealand Top 100 Bucket List

The top 100 things to do in NZ before you die

Thanks Experience New Zealand for naming Martinborough as a must-do region!

Our Cellar Door is a true legacy from Martinborough’s pioneering past. The Cottage, built in the late 1800’s in a classic farm cottage design, housed John Martin’s senior stockman. With its rustic aesthetic, inviting surroundings, and intimate setting, The Cottage has proved to be one of the most visited vineyard locations in Martinborough. Make sure you come along this summer and visit us.

5 Stars - Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

5 Stars - John Martin Chardonnay 2015 / Runholder Pinot Noir 2015 / John Martin Pinot Noir 2015

Te Kairanga ‘John Martin’ Martinborough Chardonnay 2015 - 5 stars

Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is full and voluminous with a firm heart of ripe yellow stonefruits harmoniously entwined with mealy and creamy barrel-ferment notes, and nutty oak, unfolding complexing lemon-curd and buttery MLF detail and oak toast. Medium-full bodied, the palate is rich with elegantly concentrated flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit, layered with creamy and nutty oak in an amalgam of butterscotch and toast. The richness is enhanced by fresh, lacy acidity and balanced by fine-grained phenolic textures. The flavours are carried by the structure to a long, lingering mealy, nutty and toasty finish. This is a rich, but fresh Chardonnay with a tight core and layers of stonefruit, creamy, nutty and toasty flavours. Match with creamy seafood and poultry dishes and roast pork over the next 4-5 years. 100% Mendoza clone from the ‘Home’ vineyard, WBP and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in seasoned French oak barriques and new French oak puncheons, the oak 15% new, with 100% MLF. 18.5+/20 Nov 2016

Te Kairanga ‘Runholder’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015 - 5 stars

Dark, deep, ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the edge with youthful purple hues. This has a soft and finely presented nose with well-concentrated aromas of dark-red cherry and berry fruit with suggestions of plums and liquorice melded with red florals, dark herbs, oak spice and nuances of minerals. Medium-full bodied, the palate features bright, juicy and plush flavours of dark-red berry fruits and plums with layers of liquorice, herbs and spices lifted by red floral elements. The fruit forms a concentrated core with sweetness and richness, and is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction with subtle background acidity providing energy and tension. The wine carries to a rich and juicy, fine-textured finish with lingering flavours of ripe berry fruits and plums. This is a rich and plush, dark berry fruited Pinot Noir with plum and liquorice notes and a fine-structured palate. Match with lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 6+ years. 36% Abel, 22% 777, 17% clone 6, 11% 10/5, 6% 115 and 4% each 667 and clone 5 fruit, fermented with 5% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 25% new French oak barriques. 18.5/20 Nov 2016

Te Kairanga ‘John Martin’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015 - 5 stars

Dark, even ruby-red colour with some depth and youthful, light purple hues on the edge. The nose is full with rich and deeply concentrated aromas of black cherry and dark-red berry fruits entwined with dark plum notes, savoury herbs, a hint of stalk fragrance and violet florals, and nuances of game and earth. Medium-full bodied, the palate is broad and mouthfilling with flavours of ripe dark cherry and berry fruit, and plums, melded with dark herbs, unfolding piquant stalk and floral aromatics and nutty oak. Some game and earth detail adds complexity. The fruit is underlined by fine-grained, flowery tannins and integrated acidity providing plenty of structure and presence. The structure carries the wine to a full, gently aromatic, sustained finish with nutty and herb nuances. This is a full, gently mouthfilling Pinot Noir with ripe dark berry and plum flavours with complexing layers of herbs, oak and a little savoury detail on a fine-grained, well-structured palate. Serve with game meat and semi-hard cheeses over the next 6-8 years. Hand-picked fruit, 64% Abel, 16% clone 5, 14% clone 13 and 3% each clone 6 and 115, from 66% ‘McLeod’, and 34% ‘Home’ vineyards, fermented with 12% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new French oak barriques. 18.5+/20 Nov 2016
