Lamont Wines 
Central Otago 

Riesling 2011 12.5%
Nose and Palate: Very crisp - green apple, gentle white florals, firm white flesh tree fruits. On the palate a dry wine; medium++ acidity, lovely varietal character with crisp lime, apple and grape fruit finish - which is quite long and delicate.
4.5 Stars

Pinot Gris 2012 14%
Nose and Palate: Quite a voluptuous and rich bouquet with gentle spices, lots of fleshy white fruits especially apple then a citrus peel suggestion. On the palate - a lovely weight plus medium+ acidity and length, this is a classy Gris.
4.9 Stars

Pinot Noir 2011 (Bendigo fruit) 14%
Nose and Palate:  Tense, vibrant fruits with a youthful darker cherry, raspberry and red apple skin suggestion; A LOT of schistous like soil attributes and gentle thyme (or similar) layer - focused, tense, youthful. On the palate - exactly as the nose suggests, but with really fine tannins from the oak and moderate fruit tannins - in combination very nice!; Rose and wild berry fruit suggestions; Dry, balanced and very drinkable now, but will clearly grow and change for the next 2-3 years.
5 Stars
