We tried these wines:
2009 Sauvignon Blanc $17NZD – Fruity with a fruity finish. Made with fruit from their own and contracted vineyards.
2009 Riesling – Fruity with lots of pineapple, tangerines and other citrus.
Envoy Riesling – A bit on the sweeter side, REALLY NICE. 🙂
2009 Pinot Gris – Unspectacular.2007 Envoy Pinot Gris – Very easy to drink.
2008 Gewürztraminer – A little on the spicy side.
2008 Un-oaked Chardonnay – Not great, we were disappointed.
2007 Oaked Chardonnay – Very different to what we’re used to in California. Very dry.
Envoy Chardonnay – Oaked for 18 months.
2008 Pinot Noir – Not good. Too light for our taste.
2007 Envoy Pinot Noir – Okay
2007 Merlot – Nicer than we expected. More similar to the red wine we’re used to in California.
2009 Noble Chardonnay – A great dessert wine! Very juicy and sweet without being overpowering.
2009 Noble Sauvignon Blanc – Another Spy Valley dessert wine offering. We weren’t as impressed with this one.As you can see, we were able to taste a LOT of different kinds of wine! The tasting room was very quiet when we were there and the atmosphere very relaxed. As the designated driver, Wendy was offered a complimentary coffee – which we thought was a nice touch!
