Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"The wine is deep straw in colour.  The bouquet leaps out of the glass with lychee, quince and exotic spice, underscored with hints of Turkish delight and rose petal.  Due to the varietal intensity of Gewurtz, some additional winemaking techniques have been employed to give the wine extra complexity.  Skin contact and fermenting with solids provide increased structure and a subtle hint of struck match, while the oak aging and lees contact adds mouth feel.  On the palate it is rich and unctuous, with ripe phenolics and a lingering aftertaste of fresh ginger that complement the wine’s off-dry finish.

Settled weather during December provided optimal conditions for flowering.  A very hot summer then enabled the grapes to ripen beautifully.  Free draining stony soil helped mitigate the effects of some late summer rain, and the ensuing dry autumn meant the fruit was able to be picked in excellent condition with a portion of noble botrytis."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Estate-grown at Waipara, in North Canterbury, the delicious 2018 vintage was handled for six months in old oak puncheons. Bright, light lemon/green, it is a powerful, youthful wine, weighty and rich, with concentrated, peachy, spicy, slightly gingery flavours, a vague hint of honey, and a complex, perfumed bouquet. Made in an off-dry style (14 grams/litre of residual sugar), it’s full of personality."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Oribt, January 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"It's splendidly fruited and richly expressed on the nose showing golden peach, mango, lychee and orange peel aromas with nuances of Turkish Delight, flint and fragrant spice. The palate offers terrific fruit power and intensity together with velvety mouthfeel and elegant sweetness backed by refreshing acidity, making it irresistibly delicious. At its best: now to 2025."


94/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2017 Vintage)
"Bold, precise and pungent aromatics of Gewürztraminer with suggestions of tropical fruits and red apples, pineapple, fresh lychee and white peach. There’s plenty of spice with fragrances of baking spice and sweet herbs then wild flowers and white rose. A weighty, rich, creamy and very engaging example with focus and concentration, flavours that reflect the nose, decent acid line and long finish. Drink now and through 2022+."


94/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Good bouquet of green apples, stone fruit, honey toast, a bit of mushroomy funk. Concentrated flavours in the palate, quite assertive but holds a good shape, apples, honey, toastiness, but all in control and well meshed. Serious power and drive. Blow your hair back. Fantastic."


92/100 James Suckling (2016 Vintage)
"Plenty of flinty rose water and luscious tropical fruits. The cool lychee palate is a thing of real beauty. Jasmine and rose water florals linger playfully."

  • 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!

  • 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.
