Peregrine Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015 $42.50

Sometimes people describe pinot noir as being ‘feminine’ and I think the Peregrine could absolutely be that. Feminine insomuch as she’s tall, tanned, has long, sand-dusted hair, listens to Iron Butterfly and refuses to wear a bra-type of woman. A fabulously feral female is what this wine is. Exotic aromatics of spice, pot pourri, pomegranate […]

Peregrine Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc 2016 $27 ★★★½

Anyone thinking central otago was simply pinot noir country clearly hasn’t had the pleasure of sipping their sauvignon.

Peregrine Central Otago Pinot Noir Rose 2016 $27 (4 stars)
