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

5 Stars / 96 points - Te Kairanga John Martin Pinot Noir 2015

Scored by Sam Kim

An outstanding pinot showing symphonic flavours and texture. Fragrant aromas of dark cherry, plum, game and spice with subtle floral and cedar lead to a concentrated palate that is powerfully expressed and richly textured, while remaining perfectly poised and balanced. Multi-layered and refined, this is designed to evolve graciously. At its best: 2018 to 2026.

4.5 Stars / 91 Points - Te Kairanga Pinot Noir 2015

scored by Sam Kim

Beautifully ripe and fragrant, the bouquet shows dark cherry, floral, game and floral notes, leading to a juicy palate that is rounded and silky. The wine offers excellent mid palate weight and fine texture, together with elegant savoury complexity, finishing long, smooth and delicately dry. Elegant yet flavoursome. At its best: now to 2020.

5 Stars / 94 Points - Te Kairanga Pinot Gris 2016

Scored by Sam Kim

This is instantly appealing on the nose showing poached pear, green rockmelon, floral and fig characters. The palate delivers excellent fruit weight and intensity, while remaining elegant and pristine, wonderfully supported by silky texture and refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2019.

4.5 Stars / 91 Points - Te Kairanga Rose 2016

scored by sam Kim

Youthful and fragrant, this charming rose shows rockmelon, lemon peel, watermelon and red cherry aromas on the nose, followed by a vibrant palate that is juicy and lively. The wine is delightfully attractive and immediate, and offers zesty flavours and a lingering silky finish. A lovely dry style. At its best: now to 2018.

MARTINBOROUGH VINEYARD HOME BLOCK PINOT NOIR 2013

Vibrant in colour, with effusive floral aromatics, this wine's seductive fruit presence is matched to a fine, deftly managed structure. "The fruit develops through the palate," noted John Comerford. "It's beautifully balanced and persistent in flavour, texture and structure." For John Saker, the red and dark fruit, and tannin finesse, all spoke of place. "It had Martinborough written all over it."
