moderate finish. Best with food. Drink now and through 2020. 85 points / 100.
Directors Merlot 2015 Marlborough
Deeply coloured wine, deep purple red opulent and ripe. Black doris plum with subtle background oak.
Directors Rose 2016 Marlborough
Deep salmon and peach hues. Developing bouquet with fallen leaves, roses and peaches. On the palate
showing strawberry and peach, very dusting of tannins, hints of brown spice and lees. Silken texture, decent
acidity and complex. Great example and a wine to savour, don't over chill. 90 points / 100.
Directors Pinot Gris 2017 Marlborough

Rounded and creamy texture on the palate with a little vanilla and lees interaction; flavours of white
fleshed fruits, lychee and apple. Medium acidity and moderate length. Drink now and through 2021. 88 points / 100.
Directors Chardonnay 2015 Marlborough
Golden hues, deep straw and very bright appearance leads to a bouquet filled with roasted stone fruits, burnt butter
and vanilla cream. Full-bodied and very creamy on the palate with flavours that match the nose - stone fruits,
baked apple, butter and cream. The oak message is loud and clear - well placed. Balanced and lengthy finish.
