Tasting Notes
Invivo Michelle’s Pinot Noir 2019:
 The Michelle’s range of wines has always epitomised the very best of what we do. The attributes we look for when selecting and blending this wine are power, purity and elegance. Each candidate barrel is carefully observed throughout the year and eventually we focus on 4-5 barrels that display these qualities, but also blend together in harmony. Mulberries, cinnamon, toasted spices, and dark plums all lift from the glass. The palate delivers the characteristic power and elegance of past Michelles’ with a long lingering finish that will only embolden with careful ageing. Enjoy now and for the next 8-14 years.

Invivo Sauvignon Blanc: We weren’t on deck in Marlborough to oversee the harvesting of the vineyards (thanks, Covid), but we made sure the grapes were picked at their optimum ripeness. The juice was trucked (chilled) to our winery at Te Kauwhata and the magic ensued. The result? Delicious! Lovely tropical aromas and aromatic exuberance, the palate is full-flavored, with sweet fruit but with great crunchy acidity. This is a Sauvignon Blanc for Sauvignon Blanc lovers.

Invivo Pinot Gris: 2020 was a stellar year for Pinot Gris. Perfect ripeness and a good crop ensured that a full and balanced wine was a doddle to make. Honeysuckle and poached pears on the nose, with a lovely full mouthfeel of fresh pear and floral notes. There is some sweetness but it isn’t dominant, and the palate finishes crisp and clean, prompting you to enjoy another glass.

Invivo X, Sarah Jessica Parker Rosé: A gorgeous shade of blush pink in the glass, the aroma profile invokes clear rose petals and bright summer berry characters, wrapped in a minerality that makes this wine exceptionally fresh. It’s a wine that can be serious but is also seriously fun. SJP Rosé is full bodied with great complexity and elegance, delicious on its own or with a range of cuisine.

Invivo 2019 Chardonnay: Great New Zealand Chardonnay doesn’t happen by cutting corners. Here at Invivo & Co we’ve not made ours for a couple of years because we wanted it to be just right. What you have here is a full-bodied Chardonnay of beautiful, ripe stone fruits with creamy, classy toasty oak – ‘delivering ‘that’ Go-To Chardonnay.’

Invivo Pinot Noir: 2018 was a ripper of a summer and, if we’re honest, a bit too hot! The Central Otago locals were complaining bitterly that their secret Gibbston Valley waterhole was getting too crowded! Suffice to say the vineyards copped a bit of heat more akin to Barossa than Bannockburn. That said, we did manage to pull off a bit of a blinder with this vintage. Ripeness and fruit weren’t the challenge – more just capturing the balance and not overdoing the new oak. Boom! Bold, vibrant black cherries, raspberries, subtle thyme, espresso and toast all erupt from the glass. The nose compels you to taste, and you’re not disappointed. Loads of sweet fruit with sexy, toasty oak this is a real mouthful of Pinot.

Invivo X, SJP Sauvignon Blanc: An intensely aromatic nose – this is a delicious confluence of ripe citrus, tropical fruit and a hint of something savory. The fruit spectrum is complex and while overwhelmingly ‘Sauvignon Blanc’, the addition of delicate oak adds another dimension. The striking palate immediately fills the mouth and finds a crisp finish to a long and balanced interplay of fruit and acidity. Delicate white wine tannins provide the framework and, combined with an approachable acidity, focuses the palate toward a long and elegant finish.
