This West Auckland ted is different to the floral, buoyant reds grown in the south - less overtly varietal, more earthy and 'red-winey'. The 2006 vintage, matured for a year in French oak barriques, was grown in the Hunting Hill Vineyard, across the toad from the winery, above Mate's Vineyard. Full-coloured, with a ripe, spicy fragrance and flavours, it is sweet-fruited and savoury, with good density and complexity. The 2007 is vibrant, with plum/spice flavours, slightly earthy and savoury, fairly firm tannins, and good freshness, complexity and structure. Best drinking 2010+

Just a pitching wedge from downtown Auckland, the Brajkovich's upbeat pinot shows lifted fragrance and simple confected berry fruit aromas, with savoury oak in the background and some meaty funk. The palate is all elegant cherries and smoked spices with supple tannin below.
