Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"It is typical for our Nirvana to rest in barrel for up to 2 years; the sheer power of this vintage dictated extra investment in time in the barrel store to allow the angular components the opportunity to integrate.

We maintain an attitude of respect and deference with regards to use of oak in the cellar – as a reserve release maturation in 30% new oak is a measured indulgence. Our central goal for all our winemaking is the attainment of great balance in our wines – crafting releases that reflect poise, power and a gentle hand to allow the beauty of our fruit to shine through.

Best when given some air, the aromatics of this wine build with time in the glass. Initial hits of pretty, spiced oak give way to dense plum fruit and anise with a briar edge. Forest berries are peeking out from behind that hedge of lovely oak spice and will develop further as the wine gets used to being in bottle. 

Indulged with 36 months maturation in oak, the powerful nature of this release is yet to be fully tamed. Time will bring great rewards although we are already seeing a restrained elegance in what is actually a very rich, brooding wine.

A rich creaminess sits up front and that briar, spice and darkest berries continue in-line in the palate. Nothing prickly about the tannin structure though; they have benefited from being afforded extra time in oak and sit like gentle grape dust in the mouth.

There is great weight to this baby – leaving lingering spiced plum fruit and gentle savoury notes on the finish."

5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2018 (2015 Vintage)
"This is magnificently fruited and enticing on the nose showing blackberry, blueberry, chocolate tart, cake spice, floral and cedary wood characters, followed by a concentrated palate that is opulent and impressively weighted. The wine offers glorious fruit intensity backed by lavish texture and velvety mouthfeel, wonderfully framed by seamlessly woven silky tannins. Power and grace in one. At its best: now to 2030."


93/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2014 Vintage)
"Nirvana by name, nectar by nature. Clare Valley Shiraz, 36 months in oak. Deep, dark, warm and intense. High alcohol, high octane, high oak and high on flavour. You get what you came for. A big swell of toasty, minty, blackberried fruit, curls of plum, waves of chocolate chip cookie. Tannin is firm but integrated. This is a whopper of a red. All things considered it holds its alcohol well and gets on with putting on a big show."

  • review rating 5  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!

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.

    review rating 5  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
