Schubert 2013 Pinot Noir Block B

5 stars/96 points

MW Bob Campbell

 

Tasting notes by MW Bob Campbell:

Attractively scented Pinot Noir with floral,

cherry and raspberry flavours. The wine has a

haunting purity and impressively subtle

power. An almost ethereal texture adds further

appeal. Deliciously drinkable now but with

the potential to develop well at least in the

medium term.

July 2015 - Bob Campbell reviews the Gabriel Glass

Gabriel Glass picture

 WRITER—DESIGNED WINE GLASS


I guess it's a case of "well if you think you can do better – go for it". Swiss wine writer, René Gabriel, has designed a wine glass that, in my view, is brilliant.


René explains, "The secret is the "Bouquet drive" at the bottom of the glass that enhances the development of the aroma. The slightly conical glass design concentrates the bouquet regardless of white, red or sweet wines. All of them provide a maximum of enjoyment. The glass remains resistant in spite of its fineness."


I can't comment on durability as I've only been using it for a couple of weeks, but I can endorse the way that the Gabriel Glass amplifies the wine's bouquet and is brilliantly fine and light. It's wafer thin and an absolute delight to use.


The glass is available from Schubert's Wines www.schubert.co.nz in Martinborough. I urge you to test drive one as soon as possible.
