  • Ata Rangi Celebre 2014 NZD $52.95 NZD $46.95
    "Célèbre has always had its own distinctive style as a bright, high-energy red with real concentration and a rich, mouth-filling texture. As a young wine, the 2014 is showing abundant aromatics with ripe blueberry, boysenberry and red currant notes meeting more exotic notes of star-anise. Long, fine, savoury tannins across the palate and the bracken-like earthiness from the Cabernet portions builds complexity, while Syrah brings spice and fresh, balanced acidity to the finish.

  • Ata Rangi Craighall Chardonnay 2015 NZD $48.95 NZD $42.95
    "Full straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, lighter edged. This has a finely proportioned and tightly bound nose with concentrated, vibrantly rich aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit harmoniously melded with creamy and nutty barrel-ferment notes and complex, but refines flinty lees and reductive elements, and soft lemon-curd MLF nuances, enriched by toasty oak. This is complex, detailed, layered, exuding vitality. Medium-bodied and elegant in presentation, the palate is taut and tightly bound, unfolding layers of yellow stonefruits, citrus fruits, nutty and toasty oak with nuances of gunflint. The mouthfeel is creamy and seamless from the fruit richness and barrel-ferment, the palate showing refined phenolics and balanced, refreshing acidity. This has excellent linearity, carrying to a very long and sustained stonefruity finish with complexing nutty and flinty detail. This is a beautifully elegant, detailed and complex Chardonnay with richness, intensity and refinement. Serve with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 5-6+ years. Mendoza clone fruit from the ‘Craighall’ vineyard, vines over 30 y.o., hand-picked and WBP, indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new barriques with partial MLF." – Raymond Chan... 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 $32.95 NZD $29.95
    “Bright straw-yellow colour with light green-gold hues, paler on the rim. The nose is very fresh and tight, quite elegantly presented with good intensity of white stonefruits and subtle notes of citrus fruits entwined with flinty and minerally lees and balanced, nutty oak elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is taut, refined and tightly concentrated with a core of harmoniously melded flavours of white and yellow stonefruits, citrus fruits and complexing flint, mineral and nutty detail. The palate is bright, energetic and vibrant with a refined, textural line and fresh, lacy acidity enlivening the mouthfeel. The wine carries to a long, lingering and elegantly concentrated finish of stonefruit and flinty lees. This is a tightly bound, elegantly concentrated and harmoniously detailed Chardonnay with stonefruit, flint and nutty flavours. Serve with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 5 years. Clone 15 and 6 fruit from the ‘Petrie’ vineyard, East Taratahi, hand-picked and WBP, indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months on lees in 18% new barriques and puncheons with 30% MLF.” – Raymond Chan... more »
  • Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2015 NZD $86.95 NZD $77.95
    "Very seductive pinot noir combining a sensual, silken texture with layers of complex fruit and savoury flavours. The wine has structure but it is deeply buried within a core of sweet fruit. Dark-fleshed plum, violet, cherry, spice and very subtle fresh herbs are among the more obvious flavours in this supremely complex wine. Outstanding! 8/8/2017" – Bob Campbell... more »
  • Ata Rangi Sauvignon Blanc 2016 NZD $29.95 NZD $24.95
    "Helen has worked very hard at making a style that is suited to her fruit and the district, giving a point of difference to the passionfruity thiol-monsters of the 2016 Marlborough vintage. Elegance, freshness of fruit, more methoxypyrazine gooseberry fruit, bright acidity and delicate textures were the aim, and for this, she’s used some skin contact and 30% in barrel. Very pale straw. The nose is tight and elegant with ripe yellow stonefruits and green stonefruits, and no tropical fruit. On palate crisp and steely with a slippery mouthfeel. Gooseberry fruit with subtle textures and detail. But the fruit and freshness prevail. It’s a more slender wine than some of the worked examples made elsewhere." – Raymond Chan... more »
  • Craggy Range Aroha Pinot Noir 2015 NZD $124.95 NZD $114.95
    Aroha delivers an intriguing aromatic mix of wooden spices, dried herbs, dark red roses and dark cherries. Complex red and black fruits unfold on the palate with a dusting of lovely fine tannins.... more »
  • Dry River Chardonnay 2015 NZD $74.95 NZD $69.95
    Straw coloured with green hues. This wine sits so comfortably within its framework that descriptors other than ‘pure Chardonnay’ almost seem trivial and inadequate. This wine is a stunning example of Chardonnay and a wine we have put a lot of thought into. Fruit characters such as white nectarine and citrus mingle with the subtle nuttiness of toasted and crushed almonds. Notes of brioche almost span the components of the wine-coming individually from barrels, the aging on lees, or both? The palate is extremely rich, which belies the fact that the alcohol is very low. This is definitely one of the most complex Chardonnays we have produced but still carrying the definitive Dry River DNA. Expect this wine to age very well in the cellar.... more »
  • Dry River Lovat Gewurztraminer 2014 NZD $89.95 NZD $84.95
    “Slightly dryer and less opulent than past vintages but with appealing, subtle layers of floral/rose petal, potpourri, and Oriental spice flavours. Silken-textured wine with a lengthy finish. Worth decanting my sample continued to grow in the glass for an hour.” --Bob Campbell... more »
  • Dry River Pinot Gris 2015 NZD $74.95 NZD $69.95
    Where in the last few years this wine showed rich and powerful aromatics, now elegance, refinement and authority are key words. Again, a purity of flavours is overarching a base layer of savoury components. The gentle scent of harakeke in flower, Nashi pear and exotic tropical aromas like papaya and guava are combined with butterscotch and vanilla custard. There is no clear division of taste, but a complexity that knows no boundaries or demarcations. Of recognisable interest are pistachio nuts, nougat and vanilla liqueur, further heightened with raisin pinwheels. Those familiar with it might recognise the traditional German amalgamation of fruit compote Rumtopf, without the excessive alcohol. The acidity acts as a faithful servant, maintaining freshness and length. We praise this wine for its early approachability, but it will certainly gain further interest over the next five to seven years.... more »
  • Dry River Pinot Noir 2014 NZD $96.95 NZD $89.95
    Deep red in colour with a ruby hue. The nose has full dark fruit notes of blackcurrant and blackberry. At this stage the wine shows some aromatic floral notes and sinew, just enough to balance the opulence of the fruit. There are some subtle oak notes in the form of a gentle walnut like nuance. The palate is well structured at this early stage with an abundance of front palate tannins, however most are cloaked by the richness of the fruit and the density of the flavours. Some sweetness peeks through, although only as a foil for the acidity, which combined, adds to the overall palate presence. If drinking as a young wine, we would recommend decanting first and serving slightly warmer than usual. Expect this wine to cellar well.... more »
  • Dry River Viognier 2014 NZD $54.95 NZD $46.95 Out of Stock
    At first glance the impression of the colour is yellow, which transforms into a bright golden aspect. An oily and candied nose with instantly identifiable peach and apricot bring a calming effect. This is a delightfully moderate aromatic wine full of complex aromas of lanolin, honeysuckle and mango. We believe Viognier is a variety which should show a viscous and buoyant palate, not driven by acidity, but by a soft texture and alcohol.... more »
