Brett, one half of the Vinoteca ownership team, is from New Zealand. This means he pronounces some things a bit funny, like “fush and chups” but we try not to hold that against him.
It also means he’s got the low down on where to find the very best Kiwi bottles, a crowded field as NZ makes some of the finest wine around.
Here it is: Brett’s Top Tiki Tour (and not a single Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc among them!)
Limited Edition Dry Riesling 2017 – Little Beauty, Marlborough
The definition of purity. The fruit character here is both entrancing and megaprecise — waxy lemon states the wine’s purpose, then the candied clementine & beeswax floors you with its charm. We’re in love.
Estate Chardonnay 2017 – Kumeu River, Kumeu
Burgundy-like Chardonnay; lemon and butter biscuit-scented, finely structured and French oak-influenced.
Syrah 2016 – Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay
Light, spicy Syrah with blackberry, black pepper and raspberry. A splash of Viognier adds aroma and softens the tannins.
