Auckland

  • Kumeu River Matés Vineyard Chardonnay 2015 NZD $82.95 NZD $78.95
    The Mate’s Vineyard is usually the most reserved and unyielding when young and this is even more so with the 2015 vintage. The nose is very closed, just giving hints of the golden queen peach and mineral notes that we expect from Mate’s Vineyard. On the palate however, the flavour is very concentrated and distinctly richer than the other 2015 wines, but maintaining a perfect balance and freshness that sets this wine apart and makes it wonderful. This is a wine of immense concentration that will be very long lived.... more »
  • Old Vine Chardonnay 2015 NZD $13.95 NZD $12.95
    This is one of those super deals that do not come round that often but when they do, you should take it! Selected from old vines, this Chardonnay delivers an array of butterscotch, freshly baked bread but yet maintaining a lovely freshness and fruit flavours. Frankly you would expect to pay close to the $20 mark for a Chardonnay of this quality. It is ideal with white meats or fish, drinking very well now but will also keep for a year or two. Excellent value at $12.95.... more »

  • Black Barn Tempranillo 2009 NZD $59.95 NZD $52.95 Out of Stock
    Tempranillo it is very new to New Zealand, though it is showing some promise mainly in Hawkes Bay where weather conditions and soils seem to be very well suited to the grape variety. We have tried a number of them and without doubt this is the very best that we found, it is unmistakeably varietal in flavour and profile, leather, tobacco even dry saffron, everything that you would expect from a Rioja, in fact we tried it against some classical Rioja and it was surprising how well it compared. Black Barn is a leading Hawkes Bay producer and it is refreshing that they are prepared to push the boundaries and experiment with something out of the ordinary, they definitely hit the nail on the head with this one, lovely caressing ripe fruit, concentration, dry spice and vibrancy, starting to drink now but will also cellar for the next 3-4 years.... more »

  • Alan McCorkindale Gewurztraminer 2013 NZD $26.95 NZD $24.95
    A very rich and full bodied and Alsace style Gewurztraminer which is not completely dry, it does exhibit a little sweetness, nutmeg and a huge floral bouquet but everything is integrated, balanced and focused. This is the classic Gewurztraminer that frankly you would expect from Alsace. Perfect with Asian cuisine and will also cellar for a number of years.... more »
  • Alan McCorkindale Sauvignon Blanc 2015 NZD $19.95 NZD $18.95
    Having tried this recently together with the most outstanding New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, it’s quite easy to see why it has become our best seller, classical Sauvignon Blanc, clean and focused with minerality yet still true to Marlborough emphasizing guava, asparagus and lychee. Beautiful now and over the next 3-4 years.... more »
  • Awapuni Point Chardonnay 2014 NZD $17.95 NZD $16.95
    This release of Awapuni Point Chardonnay from Marlborough is still made by Alan McCorkindale and frankly it’s even better than the last one.

  • Awapuni Point Sauvignon Blanc 2014 NZD $16.95 NZD $14.95 Out of Stock

The 2014 vintage is perhaps the best up to date, it offers lush gooseberry fruit, lychee and green asparagus but it also has depth and length with good concentration and nerve. Made exclusively for Accent On Wine, at this price will give a lot of other Sauvignon Blanc at $20 a run for their money. Drinking very well now but will also cellar for another 2 years. Drink it with mussels, prawns or any shellfish.... more »

Martinborough

  • 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 »
  • Ata Rangi Craighall Chardonnay 2014 NZD $57.95 NZD $53.95
    "Citrus blossom, nectarine and almond/brioche notes, best describe the bouquet at this early stage of development. The promise of longevity comes from sheer palate weight, the firm back bone and a sleek, salivating, flinty minerality. Fully barrel fermented with indigenous yeasts, this 2014 release has excellent cellaring potential - we can’t wait to see what it looks like after 2020."... more »
  • Ata Rangi Lismore Pinot Gris 2014 NZD $42.95 NZD $38.95
    "Another lovely vintage following 2013, this offering shows that classis 'gris' pear-and-almond-tart character, along with ripe nectarine, a hint of kaffir lime leaf and a touch of pithy grapefruit. The palate is rich and powerful, with a minerally texture and a long, intense finish. With just 6g/l residual sugar, it is a delicious stand-alone aperitif, and also perfect with Thai and other Asian influenced food. Our hard-working friends Ro & Lyle Griffiths own and meticulously manage the beautiful Lismore Vineyard nearby, and are totally committed to delivering the finest fruit possible, year after year."... more »
  • Ata Rangi Petrie Chardonnay 2015 NZD $39.95 NZD $36.95
    "Lifted florals, notes of white peach and hints of freshly-baked brioche make a salivating first impression of this finely-tuned, cool climate Chardonnay. The entry is mouth-wateringly crisp and bright, then opens and fills out across the mid-palate with a lovely textural creaminess. The minerally, wet stone thread, hint of matchstick and hallmark grapefruit note are all distinctive markers of this maturing site."... more »

  • Neudorf Nelson Chardonnay 2015 NZD $41.95 NZD $39.95
    Silky and sleek on the palate with a nose which brings to mind warm baked gingerbread and butter. Add some ripe peaches and nuts. It is the mouthfeel which places this wine firmly in the memory.

North Otago

  • Black Stilt Pinot Gris 2009 NZD $27.95 NZD $24.95 Out of Stock
    It’s not often that Pinot Gris like this is made in New Zealand, very few exceptions. From the Waitaki Valley in North Otago, this is something that we really like. A dry Pinot Gris with the influence of limestone, high altitude and marginal terroir, crisp, flinty and fresh, almost reminiscent of an Italian Pinot Grigio. Not just your usual in-your-face tutti fruity but with depth, acidity and middle palate. Lovely focus, clean and beautiful concentration. Frankly this has to be one of the very best that we have seen from New Zealand.... more »

  • Alan McCorkindale Viognier 2009 NZD $48.95 NZD $37.95
    It is not often that we see Viognier of this outstanding quality from New Zealand. Having tried it alongside some excellent Condrieu, it delivers. It has got beautiful minerality, vibrancy and freshness and beautifully perfumed. A little on the young side at the moment but within a year it will fully integrate and will become richer and a more complete wine. What we like most about this particular Viognier is that it’s dry, it has great texture, excellent balance and is full bodied. For those wanting to try one of the very best Viognier in the country, this is it!... more »
