Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"An intense bright-dark crimson, Estate Cabernet/Merlot ’20 shows immediate ripe raspberry, wild blackberry and black plum, all set against dark chocolate and velvety tannins. Sumptuous layers of flavour run from rich fruit to sandalwood, French Vanilla, and pipe tobacco. With power, presence and length, Estate Cabernet/Merlot ’20 delivers great pleasure right through its palate."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Gorgeous nose; it’s fabulously expressed on the nose showing dark plum, black cherry and toasted almond characters with a dried herb nuance. The palate displays lovely weight and fruit purity together with discreet oak infusion, beautifully supported by fine texture and polished tannins. A wonderfully composed Bordeaux-style offering stunning value. At its best: now to 2025."


Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Full-coloured, with a fresh, berryish bouquet, it is medium-bodied, with vibrant, ripe red-berry and plum flavours, showing moderate complexity, fresh acidity and gentle tannins. Enjoyable young, it offers good drinking now to 2021."

  • 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  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.
