Your Ultimate New Zealand Wine Review --

Two Paddocks Riesling 2015, Central Otago -- 95 -- 5 stars

A tiny production of 150 cases makes this a must-have for riesling fans. Delicate, pure and tight, yet inviting and satisfying, the bouquet shows red apple, lemon peel, grapefruit and flint characters, which lead to a concentrated palate that is linear and precise. Terrific acid structure and length. Hugely promising. Dry. At its best: 2018 to 2027. $32.00. April 2016.

Two Paddocks The Fusilier Pinot Noir 2014, Central Otago -- 97 -- 5 stars

From their newly acquired vineyard at the end of Felton Road in the Bannockburn district, this is an exquisitely composed pinot showing aromas of dark berry, game, truffle and cedar on the nose. The palate is equally stunning with superb fruit concentration and weight, enhanced by velvety texture and supple tannins. Youthful yet immediately appealing, this is destined to develop magnificently. A great addition to already a formidable range of pinots at Two Paddocks. At its best: now to 2024. $75.00. April 2016.

Two Paddocks The Last Chance Pinot Noir 2013, Central Otago -- 97 -- 5 stars

One of the most unlikely places to grow grapes on earth is Two Paddock's Earnscleugh vineyard. A tiny terraced single plot, among the most southerly vineyards in the world, has an old watercourse named The Last Chance hand-dug by goldminers in the 1860s. From an outstanding vintage, this glorious wine shows haunting aromas of dark berry, truffle, clove, game and cedar with nuances of thyme and nutmeg. It is concentrated and focused on the palate, and displays a flowing mouthfeel and delectable fruit flavours together with a seductive savoury undertone. At its best: now to 2023. $75.00. April 2016.
