Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"This incredibly fragrant and elegant wine is from our cooler site in Bannockburn in a warmer growing season resulting in a highly energetic wine with great flow and incredible layers of red and black fruit, baking spice and earth. The aromas are both intriguing and complex: fresh berry, lilac, baking spice and wild thyme. The palate is long and bright with cherry, raspberry, beautiful florals and cardamom. Silky fine tannins compliment the vibrant acidity, giving the wine length and memory. This wine is drinking beautifully at release and will continue to do so for at least a decade."


5 Stars & 97/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Combining richness with refinement, this stunning pinot shows dark berry characters on the nose with nuances of anise, toasted nut and floral. It’s wonderfully concentrated and weighty on the palate, delivering terrific fruit intensity with stylish oak infusion, beautifully framed by silky tannins. A complete package offering upfront appeal as well as potential to evolve graciously. At its best: 2022 to 2030."


95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, January 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Immediately engaging bouquet with aromas of fresh and preserved berry fruits, wild thyme then oak. As the wine opens up the aromas and flavours develop releasing layers of minerality and wood spices, fruit and pinosity. The structure shows off a dry, layered, spicy, fruity and youthful wine loaded with texture, flavour and pinosity. A really good wine, enjoyable, tasty, varietal, fresh and lengthy. Fine tannins with a chalky edge, nice acid line and lengthy finish with a developing complexity. Drinkable today, will benefit from time in your cellar. Best from 2021 through 2026+."


94/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2018 Vintage)
"Fragrant, appealing aroma with quite a floral and violet emphasis, while the palate was more savoury with crushed herb and grape stems adding extra interest to cherry and berry flavours. An ethereal wine with a backbone of fine tannins – should age well."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"The powerful 2018 vintage is a very savoury, firmly structured red, hand-harvested, matured for 11 months in French oak casks (30 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep ruby, it is full-bodied, with strong, well-ripened cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, fresh acidity and a tight finish. Best drinking 2022+."


93/100 Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com, October 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"The rich and fleshy red plums here are irresistible, as are the aromas of ripe red cherries and raspberries with a perfumed, grassy and spicy edge. This has such appealing and succulent style that it will be really hard not to drink now."

  • 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  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  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  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.
