Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"This wine was grown on the Barton Vineyard, Huangarua Road, Martinborough from vines 27 years old. A combination of deep alluvial gravels which the Martinborough Terraces are renowned for, and a blend of many clones grown in a very sheltered spot always rewards us with a classic example of New World Pinot Noir.

Hand harvested fruit was open top fermented using indigenous yeasts in traditional wooden cuvees, hand plunged every 12 hours, with a total vat time of 22 days. After pressing it was matured in 40% new French oak barriques for 18 months. It was fined to protect the flavours and aid brightness in the glass. Bottled without filtration, promoting soft mouth feel and texture. It has a unique site derived complexity and texture combined with black cherry/plum fruit flavours. It will continue to develop for up to 10 years and will always be a wonderful counterpart to any game food.​"


5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Complex and engaging, the wine shows dark berry, game, thyme, roasted nut and forest floor nuances on the nose, leading to a powerful yet elegant palate that’s wonderfully weighted and textured. Rich and powerful with a firmer profile, ensuring its gracious development. At its best: 2023 to 2034."


5 Stars & 19/20 (95) Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, August 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Deep, ruby-red with a deep purple hue, lighter on the rim. The nose is savoury and wholesome, with aromas of blackberries, cherry plum at core, interweave ash, earth, deep floral and an amalgam of spices. Medium-full bodied, scents of cherry plum, blackberries melded with violet, black pepper, unveiling earth, ash, savoury elements. The mouthfeel is broad with density of fruit and earth, rich yet bright. Lacy acidity links the fruit, dark floral fragrance and earth details provide vitality and energy. Fine-grained tannin coated the palate with silk, supple yet showing strength and gentle power. This is a beautifully structured Pinot Noir that has subtleties, strength and power on a silky palate. Match with lamb rump and wild boar over the next 10 years. The fruit was sourced from a single site Barton Vineyard on Huangarua Road, 27 y.o. vines. Handpicked, wild fermented in traditional wooden cuvees with 50% whole bunch, open-top, hand plunged every 12 hours, total vat time of 22 days. Aged in French oak barriques for 18 months, 40% new oak. Unfiltered. BioGro organic certified."


Rated Excellent, 5 Stars & 94/100 NZ Wine Rater, September 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Boasting a very intense, funky, complex, sulphide-influenced nose with lifted, wild berry, coffee bean, and smoky fire ember aromas. A potent, structured wine with rich, powerful mouth-filling tannins. It's clearly very youthful and needs time in the bottle but the level of concentration and the way the wine opens up in the glass suggest it's all there for the long haul."


94/100 Christina Pickard, Wine Enthusiast, April 2022 (2019 Vintage)
"From 30-year-old, close-planted vineyards in the Martinborough Terraces, Te Rehua is a spicy and highly aromatic wine. Vibrant red berries, cinnamon, white pepper, florals and a mushroomy, umami note burst from the glass. The palate is elegantly framed, and the juicy fruit reigns, even amid structured, savoury tannins. Drink now–2028."


94/100 James Suckling (2019 Vintage)
"Dried-strawberry, citrus, cream and crushed-stone aromas follow through to a full body with firm, chewy tannins that are tight and long. Reserved at the end. Pure fruit, but shy. Drink after 2023."

  • 5 star review  Relatively new to wine and liquor, but I have found the experience of trying new wines and liquor enjoying with the help from the staff at Vino Fino. Very friendly and tolerant of my basic questions!

    5 star review  Amazing customer service. Vino Fino arranged a gift wrapped, hand delivered, chilled bottle of champagne for the morning of my best friends wedding, as I was stuck in the UK with COVID. A beautiful gift. It was like nothing was too much trouble for them. I was even able to dictate a small message. Thank you for your excellent service!
