16 November 2011Michael Coopers Wine Buyers Guide 2012 is out now!

Michael Coopers Buyers Guide to New Zealand Wine, 2012 edition was released on Monday 14 November.

This is the 20th Anniversary edition (its been running for as long as Toast Martinborough!).  It now covers over 3,000 wines from about 700 wineries, compared to a few hundred wines in the first release, and has always been my 'wine bible'.  It is a massive achievement and great thanks to the 'master' for this indispensable guide. With all the tasting involved I'm in awe of his organisational skills to produce this Guide, and all his other literary efforts.

This year the guide includes reviews for our Pinot Gris 2009 (4 stars), and the Pinot Noir 2009 (3 1/2 stars)

The Gris is described as - "it has good immediacy, mouthfilling body and vibrant peach,pear and spice flavours in an off dry style, deliciously strong and lively." 
Sadily we are sold out of this wine, but it's 2010 cousin is also pretty nice and collected a Silver medal this year.

The Noir 2009 is described as - "... is generous and silky, with cherry/plum flavours. showing some savoury complexity and good harmony."

The Pinot Noir is currently available online and from selected fine wine stores and restaurants.

Huge thanks to Dan Dineen and the team who are our winemaking consultants for their efforts and support in creating these wines.
