Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"2018 was a warm vintage that served well for the later ripening varietals that make up this special blend. The 2018 Celebre is a blend of Merlot 47%, Syrah 41% and small portions of Malbec & Cabernet Franc at 6% each. The Merlot and Malbec portions are from vines planted in 1984 and 1986, they portions were the stars of this vintage with the slightly warmer nights delivering depth of flavour and fully ripe tannins that we don’t achieve every vintage.

A full and enticing nose of aromas; blueberry and boysenberry tempered by darker spice flavours of cocoa nib and black cardamom, add to that complex savoury notes of manuka bark and sundried tomatoes. The palate sweeps in with flavours of cranberry and a mineral sensation that lingers through the length of the palate. The tannins are ripe and balanced. An impressive release of this wine, delicious drinking now but with a concentration and structure that will allow this wine to further evolve."


5 Stars & 95/100 ​Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, August 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"A blend of merlot, syrah, malbec, and cabernet franc made only in the warmest vintages (no wine in 2017 and 2012. An elegant, warming wine, with appealing fruit sweetness and an attractive mix of plum, cranberry, five-spice, dark chocolate and spicy oak flavours. Good now but with a promising future."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"This flatteringly classy red shows Black Doris plum, cassis, smoked game and roasted hazelnut characters on the nose with nuances of bay leaf and warm spice. It’s wonderfully weighted and richly textured on the palate, offering gorgeous fruit flavours with spicy/savoury complexity. Impressively long and polished. At its best: now to 2030."


Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, August 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"A wine blended from Merlot, Syrah, Malbec & Cabernet Franc. Aromas of a complex and detailed wine with suggestions of plums and spice, dark olive and black berry, there’s a lovely floral scent adding a top-line of freshness then an earthy mineral and various shades of oak. On the palate – youthful, tense, vibrant and persistent. There’s power from the tannins and alcohol, medium+ acidity and a decent oak structure. The fruit provides the core with a persistent thread throughout the palate. Youthful, well made and long. Best drinking from 2023 through 2030. Decant for service before this time and serve with excellent protein rich fare."


93+/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, December 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Joe Exotic. Come to the kasbah. Laden with heady spice and a dash of pepper, plum and red fruit, dried tomato and black olive, some vanilla/cedar oak in support. Medium-bodied, tart raspberry and pomegranate, olives rolled in dried herb sort of flavours, a sappy crunch to the acidity, fine-grained tannin, and a long cool blue fruited finish. As distinctive as ever."

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
