Escarpment - Martinborough

Nestled among the undulating hills of Martinborough, Larry McKenna or Larry ‘McPinot’ as he is affectionately
known, quietly crafts some of New Zealand’s most impressive wines. These wines are new on our list this year though
I have for a long time been tempted by Larry’s delicious, rich Pinot Noirs – the grape that he is most famous for – but a
tasting of his equally delicious, fruit-driven Pinot Gris earlier this year decided the case. I will hopefully add some of
his single-vineyard Pinot Noirs later in the year.

Waimea Estate - Nelson

Founded 21 years ago by Trevor and Robyn Bolitho, Waimea Estate has grown into one
of the country’s most successful wineries – winning over 150 Gold Medals - while keeping
the family-owned boutique nature of the estate intact. The Round Stone Bay Sauvignon Blanc
has been very well received for its typically assertive Nelson style and classy grapefruit and
elderflower flavours. The Spinyback range are all superb examples of their varietals while the
Waimea Albarno
is a fabulous dry but aromatic white, as is the equally in vogue Gruner Veltliner,
while their Trev’s Red 2013 (4th vintage made) has power and drinkability intertwined:
classic example of an iron fist in a velvet glove if I ever saw one.
