Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 Reserve Syrah has dark, youthful colour. Rich and silky textured, with concentrated plum, spice flavours and a hint of violet petal. Deliciously elegant and harmonious. It is a wine that will keep improving and can be enjoyed with proper cellaring for up to 2026.

The 2017 Reserve Syrah is made with 99% of Syrah grapes from our Gimblett, Te Awanga and Bridge Pa Triangle Vineyards with 1% Viognier co-fermented into the blend. Small ferments ranging from 1 to 5 tonnes combining traditional open top oak cuves and stainless open top fermenters. The ferments were hand plunged and the wine was then aged for 20 months in 38% new French oak with an additional 4 months in tank on lees. There was no fining and minimal filtration."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"This is beautifully ripe and splendidly expressed, showing Black Doris plum, dark cherry, violet and subtle cedar characters on the nose with a hint of pepper spice. The palate displays lovely concentration and fruit intensity together with fleshy mouthfeel and polished tannins, finishing wonderfully long and velvety. At its best: now to 2027."


94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, April 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"Bold, rich, fruity and almost exotic with varietal aromas of dark red currants and raspberry, dark red cherry – all laced with toasty barrel aromas with roasted vanilla and clove. On the palate – dry, peppery, fruity with flavours that reflect the nose. Firm youthful tannins, no mistaking the back bone of acidity set against a core of varietal fruit flavours and textures and a lengthy complex building finish. Balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2025."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Already delicious, but set for a long life. It is full-coloured, weighty and complex, with concentrated, plummy, spicy flavours, supple tannins and a very harmonious, lasting finish. A very ‘complete’ wine."


5 Stars & 19-/20 Candice Chow for Raymond Chan Review, August 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"Deep, ruby-red with some depth and a dark purple hue, lighter on edge. The nose is gently full with power and concentration, red plums, blackberries, along with medicinal herbs, black pepper, unfolding smoke meat and leathery nuances. Full-bodied, dense fruit of Doris plums, blackberries have a concentrated core, along with smoky bacon, black pepper, liquorice and leather linger to a long, sustained finish. The fruit has the right ripeness, densely formed with weight; interweaved finely extracted velvety fine-grained tannin, smooth and comforting. Dark and medicinal herb element is attractive, complementing the smoky bacon and leathery detail added richness and interest. Lacy acidity provides just enough brightness to this otherwise too dense Syrah, flows lively to a lengthy, sustained finish. This is a full-bodied Syrah with flavours of dark fruit, complexing herbs and smoke meat detail. Match with lamb ribs and meat stew over the next 5-8 years, will benefit from decanting. 99% Syrah and 1% Viognier co-fermented to 13.4% alc. Aged for 20 months in French oak, 38% new. Further aged in tanks on lees for 4 months."

  • 5 star review  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.

    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!

    5 star review  Best wine shop in Christchurch! Caters to all tastes and budgets. Be prepared to spend a while in this store as the options are endless. The staff are very knowledgeable and their recommendations/reviews are spot on. I do not bother buying wine from anywhere else and if i'm in a rush - simply order it online. 10/10
