4 STARS all round

We’re delighted that all our 2018 wines have been awarded 4 Stars by leading wine critics, Bob Campbell MW and Michael Cooper

Flaxmore Moutere Pinot Gris (Bob Campbell) : 93/100 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, ranked 11th of 86 NZ Pinot Gris.

Crisp, off-dry with citrus, pineapple, pear and subtle spicy flavours. Impressive purity and an ethereal texture add appeal. Lovely acidity helps promote a drying finish.

Flaxmore Moutere Rosé (Michael Cooper) : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The distinctive 2018 vintage was made from hand-picked Pinot Noir, grown in the Moutere hills. Pale pink, it is a fresh and lively, medium-bodied wine, with very satisfying depth of watermelon, peach and spice flavours, dry and lingering. A 'serious' style of rosé, it's looking good for the summer of 2019-20.

Flaxmore Moutere Pinot Noir (Bob Campbell) : 90/100 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Supple, tangy pinot noir with bright red cherry, floral, violet and subtle crushed herb flavours. A distinctive wine with good purity and an ethereal texture. Accessible now but no rush.
