  • Alain Graillot Crozes Hermitage Blanc 2006 NZD $39.95 NZD $34.95
    This is the white version of the red made from Roussane and Marsanne which in days gone by, would have been used to blend into the reds. Nowadays the quality and the exquisite flavours of these wines are sought after around the world for their uniqueness. It has great minerality with a total absence of oak, fresh and crisp with nuances of nutmeg, pine nuts and green capsicum. On its youth it can be outstandingly refreshing but also has the capability of aging for 4-5 years. It's a superb wine to accompany fish cakes, Fish casseroles etc. Will also cellar for up to 5 years plus.... more »

  • Alain Graillot Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2006 NZD $49.95 NZD $44.95
    As is always the case this frankly represents the best expressions of Syrah that can be found anywhere in the world. The wine is made from 100% Syrah from very low yielding vines averaging 30 years old. The viticulture is quite rustic and artisan therefore allowing the wine to express its true terroir characteristics. On appearance it has a very deep almost black with hints of ruby colour with an array of dry herbs, black olive and roasted red pepper. On the palate it is incredibly big and juicy almost chunky with notes of tarragon and tapinade. The finish is persistent and long emphasizing cracked black pepper corns with hints of leather yet remaining clean with great purity. Drinking beautifully now.... more »

  • Alain Graillot Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2012 NZD $39.95 NZD $34.95
    Alain Graillot pretty much revolutionized this appellation back in 1985, wines made from Syrah which are fresh, peppery, clean and very focused. Wonderful flavours of cracked pepper, leather and spice with great balance, acidity and finesse. The 2012 is a little on the young side but will drink superbly for the next 5 years plus.... more »
  • Alain Graillot Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2013 NZD $54.95 NZD $44.95
    This 2013 is magnificent now, it has a perfume of lavender, thyme, a dose of white pepper and an infusion of black pepper. Magnificent now but will also keep improving. Considering the price and the quality, we don’t think you’ll get any better! Please bear in mind that these wines needs a little bit of breathing time so decanting or opening up in advance will help, you will see them changing and you will see the evolution in your glass!... more »
  • Alain Graillot Saint Joseph 2008 NZD $44.95 NZD $39.95
    This is another of his great offerings that even though quite different in style to the Crozes Hermitage, it delivers incomparable value for money. Made from Syrah and sometimes a little Viognier added for colour and aroma, the wine is expressive, full bodied, dense and enormously concentrated. For anyone with an appreciation of Syrah will love this the rustic but yet elegant Saint Joseph. As is always the case Alain Graillot sets the standard in this part of the Rhone his wines are structured and age worthy yet very approachable when young, it will develop for the next 4-5 years.... more »
  • Bruno Thierry Cairanne 2011 NZD $27.95 NZD $24.95
    Cairanne, a relatively new appellation within the Cotes du Rhone, makes wines mainly from Grenache, Syrah and Mouvèdre. The 2011 a vintage which is starting to drink superbly now however with another 2 or 3 years it will only get better. Medium to full bodied with good concentration, balance and backbone. Wonderful aromas of thyme, pepper and roasted capsicum are very prominent but it is not only about fruit flavours, it also has excellent depth, length and beautiful balance. Drink now or over the next 4-5 years.... more »
