  • Domaine Point Pinot Noir 2014 NZD $29.95 NZD $27.95
    This is a very clear example that Central Otago can make very good Pinot Noir without the exorbitant prices. We like this Pinot Noir because it is dry, well balanced and well structured yet with lovely frontal fruit, juicy and very good handling of the oak. Once you try it, it is a very clear example that you don’t really have to pay top prices to get a superb quality Pinot Noir. This is drinking superbly now however it has lovely structure, concentration and depth and it will also keep for another couple of years or so.... more »
  • Domaine Point Riesling 2013 NZD $23.95 NZD $21.95
    Brand new vintage of this absolutely superb Riesling. Very much made in an Austrian/German style with a little residual sugar, off-dry, but vibrant, fresh, full bodied with lovely acidity and minerality. Central Otago seems to be producing outstanding Riesling. We’ve tried this together with excellent examples of German and Austrian Riesling and it’s just up there. Refined, focused with lovely citrus flavours and able to age for the next 4-5 years plus, absolutely outstanding especially at the price!... more »
  • Earths End Pinot Noir 2015 NZD $36.95 NZD $33.95
    Made by Mount Edward, this is pretty much their 2nd tier Pinot Noir. It is made in a soft and fruity style ready to drink relatively young and fresh, yet still displays beautiful soft tannins with aromas of thyme, cherry and forrest fruits, very well defined with well integrated oak. Starting to drink very well now but will also keep for another 2-3 years, you might want to compare this alongside other Central Otago Pinot Noir at $40-$50 and you’ll see that it delivers.... more »
  • French Bay Pinot Noir 2014 NZD $21.95 NZD $19.95 Out of Stock
    We've tried it 3-4 times against other Central Otago Pinot Noirs all at $30-$40 plus and it is just up there. At last we are starting to see some value from this ever promising and in some cases exciting area. It is Pinot Noir as it should be, soft, velvety and textural with forrest floor, maraschino cherry and a good dose of spring flowers. Superb ripe tannins, very good acidity and a delicious burst of freshness and fruit... We think you'll love it! And let’s not forget it’s only $19.95 per bottle in case lots. Shock your friends and tell them it is $40.... more »
  • Kawarau Estate Pinot Gris 2011 NZD $21.95 NZD $19.95 Out of Stock
    It is refreshing to find a vineyard that really understands what Pinot Gris should be like, this is dry, crisp and flinty not sugary, over alcoholic and flabby, wild fermentation and extended time on its lees have added to the complexity and structure of the wine. This Pinot Gris is an elegantly textured wine displaying orange blossom, pear and lime aromatics complemented by sweet pears and white pepper on the palate with a lasting and appealing mineral finish. Fantastic!... more »
  • Mount Edward Pinot Noir 2014 NZD $54.95 NZD $49.95
    The latest release from Mt. Edward that from humble beginnings has become one of the benchmark producers in Central Otago. The 2014 together with 2013, 2007 and 2009 are perhaps the best vintages since its insertion in 1997, founded by Alan Brady one of the pioneers in the area, the wine has been improving year on year which is not always the case for many other vineyards. This is one for the cellar, lots of ripe cherries, thyme and ripe berry fruits, but it is not all about just fruit, what I like about this wine is the lovely soft and velvety tannins that you come to expect from Pinot noir, ample middle palate with focus and balance. Medium body and expressive, no doubt one of the top not just from Otago but in the country. Cellar for another 5-6 years.... more »
