  • Tongue in Groove Little Stomper 2018 NZD $38.95 NZD $29.95
    This wine has intense aromas of Gewurztraminer (Gew); rose water, Turkish delight and hints of orange blossom from the Muscat. These aromas and flavours are supported by interesting peppery, earthy and chalky nuances due to the stems in the fermentation. The palate is rich and full with mouth coating tannins (extracted from both the stems and skins) giving a salivating texture balancing the gorgeous forward fruit typical of Gew and Muscat. This wine is incredibly drinkable and an excellent food match as the tannins will cut the richness of most dishes and give lasting pleasure in the glass.... more »
  • Tongue in Groove Pinot Noir 2015 NZD $43.95 NZD $39.95
    Intense aromas abound; vibrant cherry fruit with an earthy, savoury undertone, reminiscent of being in an underground, chalk cave. This delicious herbal complexity being the result of a high percentage of whole bunches in the ferment. Generous fruit initially on the palate balances the salivating, chalky, mouth coating tannins. Good acid levels also enhance the drinkability of this Pinot and its ageability. A complex style of Pinot Noir showing the abundant fruit of NZ combined with the robust tannins more typical of a Pinot from Burgundy. The fruit weight and structure of this wine will allow bottle development and ageing for the next 8 to 10 years.... more »
