  • Agricola Punica Barrua 2012 NZD $64.95 NZD $52.95
    The so-called Sassicaia of Sardinia, made in collaboration with local Sardinian growers, is becoming a reference point for wines from this island and even Italy. Made from a blend of 85% Carignan, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. On the nose it exhibit spice, black fruits, game and hints of leather. The palate is superb, balanced, poised and full bodied with great depth, length and concentration. This is a wine that has the potential within years to rival Sassicaia itself but at a fraction of the price.... more »
  • Ata Rangi Celebre 2013 NZD $52.95 NZD $46.95
    "2013 impressed as the vintage of the decade. Warm summer temperatures, peaking at 28°C, lay the foundation, followed by cool nights through the long drawn-out autumn. This has resulted in a season where the Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah have all delivered on their true classic varietal expression; the low natural yields of these varieties allowing for harvesting at perfect ripeness before late autumn rains. The heady, perfumed aromas of star anise, red plums, with notes of woodsey cinnamon and dried herb, are exotic and beguiling. The entry is dense, then finely textured in the mid-palate, with a long mineral quality. A concentration of fruit wraps itself around the tannins, leading to an exhilarating finish. An exceptional season has delivered a compelling, age-worthy wine of wonderful tension – a fitting result for release in Ata Rangi's 35th year of work on the land."... more »

  • Chateau Cos D’Estournel 2009 NZD $789.95 Out of Stock
    “One of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted, the monumental 2009 Cos d’Estournel has lived up to its pre-bottling potential. A remarkable effort from winemaking guru Jean-Guillaume Prats and owner Michel Reybier, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot (33%) and a touch of Cabernet Franc (2%) was cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare. It boasts an inky/black/purple color along with an extraordinary bouquet of white flowers interwoven with blackberry and blueberry liqueur, incense, charcoal and graphite. The wine hits the palate with extraordinary purity, balance and intensity as well as perfect equilibrium, and a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, wood and alcohol. An iconic wine as well as a remarkable achievement, it is the greatest Cos d’Estournel ever produced. It is approachable enough at present that one could appreciate it with several hours of decanting, but it will not hit its prime for a decade, and should age effortlessly for a half century.” Score 100/100 Robert Parker... more »
  • Chateau Lafon La Tuilerie 2011 NZD $64.95 NZD $49.95
    2011 is a relatively cool vintage in St. Emilion which benefitted the varieties of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Classical St. Emilion, layered and refined with lovely acidity, good middle palate, concentration and depth. This is almost the opposite of the 2010 in ripeness and power. Will cellar for 5 years plus.... more »
  • Chateau Lafon La Tuilerie 2012 NZD $64.95 NZD $49.95
    2012 was one of the best vintages on record in Bordeaux. Seeing the prices of other 2012 Bordeaux, this is a sure thing in fact it's a complete steal! Owned and operated by the Lafon family well known in Bordeaux as wine growers and makers, this is pretty much the flagship of the company. 2012 is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon, its incredibly ripe and concentrated. On the nose it displays cassis, floral undergrowth, tar and mint. Because of the nature of the 2012 vintage, it offers superb ripe tannins, interlinked with espresso froth, mocca, lead pencil yet remaining fresh, pure and vibrant. Superb 10-15 second finish with excellent length. An outstanding offering for those that love classic Bordeaux at its best. Cellar for 8 years plus.... more »
  • Chateau Lafon La Tuilerie 2013 NZD $64.95 NZD $49.95
    2013 was a vintage vastly different to 2009 and 2010, cooler with less heat yet a good long summer. This resulted in very even ripeness particularly for those producers that did a lot of work in the vineyard. Classical St. Emilion, vibrant acidity, lovely middle palate, freshness and good intensity. Without doubt one of the best balanced wines that we’ve seen in the last few years from Lafon la Tuilerie. Approachable now however this will be a gem in another few years, it has the pedigree and the composure to excel!... more »
  • Chateau Lagrave Paran Rouge 2014 NZD $24.95 NZD $22.95 Out of Stock
    After 16 years of Accent on Wine importing Chateau Lagrave Paran directly from the Chateau with no middlemen involved, 3 vintages come to mind so far, 2000, 2005 and 2014. Stunning and concentrated with great depth and structure, ripe tannins with wonderful length. At the moment it’s still young however even for a Bordeaux Superior, this will reward a little patience of 2-3 years even though it is delicious now.... more »
  • Chateau Lanessan 1999 NZD $59.95 NZD $49.95
    We were quite lucky to get this stunning Bordeaux ex-Chateau from the last century! Chateau Lanessan dates back to the origins of the great Chateau in Bordeaux, it has always been a classic Haut-Medoc that in good vintages can develop for 25-30 years and this 1999 is no different. A wonderful bouquet of dry herbs, game and savoury fruits leads to a medium to full bodied well textured and layered wine that is drinking beautifully now but will also cellar. This is imported directly ex-Chateau so basically straight direct from Chateau Lanessan to Accent on Wine so you can have every confidence that it is in tip top condition!... more »
  • Chateau Lanessan 2010 NZD $59.95
    Chateau Lanessan owns 45 Hectares in the Haut-Medoc close to the appellation of St. Julien. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. A classical Bordeaux that epitomises its terroir, medium to full bodied with dark berry, lead pencil and dusty flavours, rich and perfumed, everything that you would expect from a superb Bordeaux in a great vintage.

  • Chateau Leoville Barton 2012 NZD $164.95 NZD $156.95
    “Dense ruby/purple, with cassis licorice and forest floors notes in the aromatics, Léoville-Barton’s 2012 is a relatively big, rich, masculine style of wine. This full-bodied wine needs 5-8 years of cellaring and should evolve easily for 25-30 years. Drink: 2023 – 2053. 92/100” – Robert Parker... more »
