Kusuda Martinborough Wines

$99.00 - $240.00
Sold Out!

Hiroyuki Kusuda's Martinborough vineyard has 1.6 ha of Pinot Noir, 1.2 of Syrah and even less Riesling. 'Hand-crafted' was never more apt; the now 'famous/infamous' vintage regime involves picking each berry individually when it is at perfect ripeness, necessitating several fastidious passes through the vines.

Volumes of Kusuda Pinot and Syrah into Australia have been reduced by 70%, owing to the small harvest, coupled with Hiro Kusuda's extreme berry selection process. There is no Riesling this year. Because of this limited availability, this year we are only selling the Kusuda Pinot and Syrah AS A PAIR. But you can buy as many pairs as you like, as long as stocks last.

2015 Kusuda Pinot Noir: GARY WALSH, Winefront, tasted Jan 2017: 'Strong rise of rosy perfume, vanilla and baking spices, sweet red cherries... sappy and tangy, grainy tannin pulls through in the back, and the finish is fresh, sprinkled with herbs and bright cherry fruit. Delicious. So energetic.'

2014 Kusuda Syrah: More Northern Rhone perfume and suppleness in 'syrah/shiraz' style than Hawkes Bay's intensity or Barossa's rich gloss. Kusuda Syrah is a complex and beguiling wine and is often considered to be the 'star' turn in Kusuda's small stable of wines.

Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore. We specialise in the best of premium pinot noir as grown so beautifully in the cool climes of Tasmania, New Zealand and southern parts of the big Australian continent. Our love for pinot extends to its sibling styles pinot gris and grigio and fizzy cousins sparkling wine and Champagne, even when they don’t contain pinot noir. That’s not to say we’ve become too exclusive - we also stock an interesting range of delicious wines for those (rare) times when you’re not drinking pinot…
