Press ReviewPress

Peter Yealands is apparently a ‘can do’ man. I have never really understood what this means but he has certainly built a number of very successful companies over the years and his exploits in the wine world are to be greatly admired. I attended the annual New Zealand tasting the other day and only a handful of tables shone with complete portfolios of excellent wines. It’s hard to hit the high notes with a variety of styles but this winery has a few stars which you should not miss….2016 Yealands Estate Single Vineyard PGR, a Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling blend, is one of the finest whites imaginable with Thai and Malaysian cuisine. My featured wine though is the star. In spite of the number of Pinot Noirs made in New Zealand, very few Kiwis can make stunning Pinot Noir at fifteen quid. I know this because I have tasted every single version sold in the UK. This one is the best.

The first sniff reveals a creamy, almost chocolate aroma, undercut by violets and cherries. Then take a sip – this is exactly what a ‘silky texture’ feels like in the mouth. A wonderful wine.

Will LyonsThe Sunday Times

An adorable pinot, amazingly soft and rounded, with a creamy, milk-chocolate layer under fresh, ripe raspberries, a toasty-oak touch to the finish. One for duck.

Food recommendation

The Classics - Lamb & Duck. However this wine is also fine enough to pair with white meats and some fish.
