Julicher Martinborough Riesling 2014
Very aromatic with lots of fresh lime and green apple aromas, wet stone mineral and a hint lees complexity. On the palate - just dry and packed with flavour - apple and pear with lots of citrus and apricot stone flavors; a touch and mandarin and lime flower and very light lees texture and mineral. Balanced, medium+ length and a longish finish. Well made.

Julicher Martinborough Pinot Noir 2012
Quite a seductive bouquet with floral scented light red fruits of cherry and pomegranate and a light dusting of dried herb; a silty mineral layer adds complexity with medium spiced oak rounding out the bouquet. On the palate - dry, fruity and minerally - light red fruit flavors enhanced by dusty almost chalky tannins, medium spiced oak and plenty of acidity; overall a charming wine with pinosity and texture. Well made.
