95 Points, James Suckling
Jancis Robinson loved this wine, calling it “Cote de Beaune, not Cote de Nuits, with a relatively savory Burgundian nose.” All that adds up to a high-flying, deeply intricate Pinot that got James Suckling to gush in his 95-point review. He called the palate, “regal, polished and powerful” with a “vibrant core” and gave the wine one of his highest scores of the tasting. From the two winemakers who helped put Cloudy Bay on the map, this wonderful Pinot Noir with some age to it is just hitting its stride.
The newly released 2021 Frenzy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is a fabulous value white wine, loaded with green apples, pears and white peaches plus a hint of spice. It’s juicy and fresh, the perfect cocktail hour white. It’s what is referred to as the perfect ‘pool wine’. It’s great paired with just about anything or just enjoyed on its own.
I got this one before most everybody else in the country which is why this is still yet to be scored. Last year, Wine Enthusiast gave it a 91-point Editors’ Choice review saying, “Te Mata is a few bucks more than your average New Zealand SB. It’s worth every penny.” That pretty much sums up how I feel about this wine. A lot of New Zealand SBs give you the gooseberry and tropical aromatics, but this is a serious Sauvignon Blanc with sophistication, and depth. Refreshing and long with a great finish, this is the one to snag out of New Zealand in the 2021 vintage.
