Gold Medal – New Zealand Organic Wine Awards 2021


Le Maitre comes from Gibbston Valley's original Home Block vineyard in the western entry to Gibbston. The vineyard is not irrigated and has BioGro Organic certification. The vines have a natural balance born from age and a deep root profile. The subregional influence of Gibbston gives transparency and elegance to the wine. It is a product worthy of deep and lengthy contemplation.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Le Maitre is grown from mature vines, planted by Alan Brady planted in the early 1980’s. It is a low production wine made from this historic dry-farmed, organic vineyard.

Deeply complex; demure red fruits sidle alongside earth, beetroot and alpine flowers. Medium bodied, the precise acidity draws the poised fruit through to a delicate finish. Fine and elegant."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"Grown in the Home Block at Gibbston, where the oldest vines were planted in 1983, the 2019 vintage, certified organic, was matured for 10 months in French oak casks (25 per cent new). Bright ruby, with a fragrant, slightly earthy bouquet, it is an elegant, still extremely youthful wine, with rich, vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, woven with fresh acidity, and good tannin backbone. Highly refined, with good vigour, complexity and structure, it’s well worth cellaring to 2023+."


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2019 Vintage)
"From old vines (planted in 1983) grown on the Home Block in Gibbston. It was 100% de-stemmed before fermentation using indigenous yeasts. A fragrant, floral pinot noir with red cherry, violet, fresh herb flavours and a peppery texture."


Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Vibrant, varietal and enticing bouquet with aromas of ripe red berry fruits with a savoury core, fine smoky wood scents and baking spices of vanilla and clove, complex, youthful and engaging. On the palate – equally vibrant, very youthful and quite tense with firm tannins and medium+ acidity, the core of fruit balances the youthful attributes and mineral along with oak and its toasty spices. Lengthy finish, well made and ready from 2022 through 2030+."


92/100 Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2019 Vintage)
"From the home vineyard's original 1983 plantings, the 2019 Le Maitre Pinot Noir aged in 28% new French oak (two barrels out of seven). Like past vintages, it's deep and earthy in profile, with mushroomy, almost-truffle-like nuances, blackberry and black cherry fruit and hints of dried spices. Medium to full-bodied, it's richly textured on the palate and brightened by crisp acids on the mouthwatering finish. It should drink well for up to a decade."

  • 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  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  Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. 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  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!
