Air New Zealand – March 2011

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

We are thrilled that our Urlar Pinot Noir 2009 has been carefully selected by a prestigious group of wine judges for Air New Zealand business class flights from August 2011 to January 2012.  Two famous New Zealand winemakers; John Belsham and Kate Radburn tasted through 720 wines to come up with only a handful to be selected.

2010 Urlar Sauvignon Blanc, Wairarapa.

“This is a restrained, classy, less exotic interpretation of this grape variety and I love its calm fruit flavours.  Perfect for the less boisterous amongst you.”

Urlar Gladstone Sauvignon Blanc 2010 – 4.5 Stars

‘Sweaty’ armpit aromas lead into a fleshy, well-rounded, northern Wairarapa wine with ripe nectarine and passionfruit flavours, a hint of herbs, and excellent concentration.

Urlar Gladstone Pinot Noir 2009 – 5 Stars

Rich, instantly appealing wine from the northern Wairarapa, full-coloured and generous, deep and finely textured.  Very ripe and savoury, with dense, sweet fruit and lovely weight, balance and length.
