Weeping Sands & Obsidian 2012 and 2011 Releases

24-Sep-2012
The Obsidian Vineyard wines of Waiheke Island seem designed to give plenty of satisfaction. Lindsay Spilman has a broad outlook on the classical wines of the world which is shared by his winemaker Michael Wood, and this is imparted into their wines. The whites are certainly very textural and dry, these traits prerequisites for matching with a variety of foods, and the reds are generous and well-ripened, perfect with hearty red meat fare. What is pleasing is the quality of the wines across the board. For a small producer, the range is impressively broad and incorporates innovative varieties, and all of the wines perform well. Obsidian Vineyard adds much to the importance of Waiheke Island as a noteworthy winegrowing region. Here are my reviews of the latest ‘second tier' Weeping Sands wines as well as the new Obsidian Vineyard whites. www.obsidian.co.nz
