Welcome

Reds

It is not the flesh but the skin of the grape that gives colour - and flavour. Hence some drinkers find reds more ‘satisfying’ - simply because they have more flavour sources! While whites have apple/citrus flavours of pulp, these are ‘built over’ in reds by stronger red and black fruit, spicy and earthy flavours caused by maceration (soaking/fermenting on skins). This ‘leaching’ is almost exclusive to reds, also leading to fuller texture and weight of solids (phenolics). The most important phenolics - besides colour compounds - are tannins. From both skin and pip, the quality of tannins help red wines to age and determines their style as soft and fruity (low tannin) or firm and structured (high tannin).

    2012 Callejo Majuelos de Callejo

    92 Points John Caro
    Ripe and silky, this vibrant old vine Tempranillo is from a fastidious producer who also happens to be a legend. And organic. With slurpy, sweet-fruited richness it's tempting to call it ...

    92 Points John Caro
    Gorgeously lush and dark, this special drop from Callejo is one of the leading wines of Ribera del Duero. It is from an elevated site that was, strangely, earmarked for an airfield before the ...

  3. 2014 Callejo Felix Callejo

    2014 Callejo Felix Callejo

  6. 2017 Dry River Martinborough Pinot Noir

    2017 Dry River Martinborough Pinot Noir

    95 Points Bob Campbell MW
    Is this NZ’s top Pinot? Huge fruit depth and complexity comes from old vines (20+ years), tender viticulture and extremely low yields. Sheer fruit depth with layers undertones of earthy herbs ...

    2015 Ata Rangi Celebre Red

    95 Points Sam Kim
    Serious stuff, the Celebre from Ata Rangi is consistently one of NZ's best red blends. Otherwise a Bordeaux mix, the added Syrah tilts it in a slightly different direction with a nice note of ...

  10. 2015 Dry River 'Lovat' Martinborough Syrah

    2015 Dry River 'Lovat' Martinborough Syrah

    95 Points Richard Caro
    Serious Syrah from Dry River, this is on a par with the best. It is not showy or fruit-driven and more like a Northern Rhone Syrah -- elegant, aromatic and remarkably light-bodied (only 12.5% ...
