Lone Goat Vineyard

Lone Goat Vineyard Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Pungent bouquet with 'classic' New Zealand and Marlborough messages: vibrant, fruity, tropical and packed with fresh herb aromas of basil; white peach, lemon and passionfruit. On the palate - crisp and fresh with a light weight feel; flavors of tropical fruits and citrus return; high acidity and a steely mineral wet stone finish. 
3 Stars

Lone Goat Vineyard Canterbury Riesling 2009
Aromas of toasty lime and lemon with baked apple and honey - a wine showing bottle development; grapefruit and a touch faded white rose add some complexity and depth to the bouquet. On the palate - off dry with  some obvious sweetness contrasted well by medium+ acidity; flavors of lime and honey with apple and a touch of peach emerge; a balanced and well made wine with medium length.
3.5 Stars

Lone Goat Vineyard Canterbury Pinor Gris 2013
Classic Pinot Gris colors with a brassy pink hue from a touch of skin contact. Aromas of pear and red apple with a nudge of quince and Asian pear. On the palate - off dry with some sweetness off-set by medium+ acidity; medium weight; flavors reflect the white fruits above and a touch of white pepper. Solid drinking through 2015 and 2016
3 Stars
