  • Alan McCorkindale Pinot Noir 2014 NZD $42.95 NZD $37.95

Very much the style of Waipara Pinot Noir, savoury, medium to full bodied with lovely ripe tannins, wonderful acidity and exhibiting dry herbs, thyme and cepes.

  • Ata Rangi McCrone Pinot Noir 2014 NZD $98.95 NZD $89.95
    Ata Rangi's McCrone Vineyard was originally established by our team for friends Don and Carole McCrone who also grow Pinot Noir for leading Oregon producer Ken Wright Cellars. By 2001, when this 6-acre vineyard was planted, we had 20 years of Pinot experience and were able to choose clones and trellising styles that we considered consistently top performing. Unlike our own vineyard soil profiles,the McCrone site just around the corner in Regent St has a smattering of clay within the gravels. The cooling effect of this clay delivers a distinctively different aroma and flavour profile than that of the Ata Rangi Pinot Noir, even with vine age taken into account. The 2014 is the fifth release from this single site. Bottled in August 2015 this wine has been allowed to slowly evolve prior to release two years on. A bolder style than our flagship Pinot Noir, the nose offers a depth of rich spicy notes with a hint of manuka flower. It opens on the palate with a big swell of flavor supported by fine, velvety tannins. The finish is juicy and complex, with an evolution of flavours into a more savoury, umami style.... more »
  • Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2015 NZD $99.95 NZD $78.95
    "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 »
  • Awapuni Point Pinot Noir 2014 NZD $21.95 NZD $19.95
    The red brother of the Chardonnay also made by Alan McCorkindale from grapes sourced from Bannockburn in Central Otago. We’ve been asked various times how can a Pinot Noir at this price be so good and of course the secret is always in the vineyard. Old vines from low cropped vineyard hills that are gently pressed, fermented to dryness with a soft velvety texture. Quite complex and balanced with lovely aromas of thyme, blueberries and roasted lamb. Beautiful as it is now!... more »

  • Black Stilt Pinor Noir 2014 NZD $38.95 NZD $34.95
    The 2014 Pinot Noir is more intense than the 2013 with more of the “forest floor” characteristics of a French Burgundy, but full of fruit and spice flavours with a long finish. Like the 2013 it will continue to develop with more bottle age but is drinking beautifully now. Being from North Otago, it has a beautiful balance with lovely acidity, freshness, elegance and even though it is very approachable now it will cellar for another 4-5 years plus.... more »
  • Bollinger Rose N.V. Brut NZD $126.95 NZD $119.95
    A completely new Rosé from Champagne Bollinger. The creation of this non-vintage rosé has been long in the making and a dream of the House for over six years. This wine has evolved not as a curiosity, but as with all of the Bollinger cuvées, as a careful assembly of the very finest ingredients by their talented, passionate team. In the meticulous House style, Bollinger Rosé is modelled on the Special Cuvée blend, combining the fruits of previous harvests plus the addition of reserve wines from their cellars in Ay. The final component, which provides colour and delicate aromas of ripe red fruits, is a proportion of still red wine coming exclusively from Bollinger's Grand Cru Vineyards in the Cote d'Ay and Verzenay.... more »

  • Dry River Pinot Noir 2016 NZD $96.95 NZD $89.95
    “The 2016 vintage was our driest growing year in recent wine cultivation history. Fruit set was above average, and combined with good heat accumulation the resulting wine certainly shows ample concentration. Care was exercised in maintaining yield, approximately four tonnes/ha, and vigilant winegrowing techniques enabled ripening of what I consider to be a classic and refined Dry River Pinot Noir. Immediately red currant, strawberries and plum fruit deliver an aromatic hit. Though primary red fruit are visibly dominant, there is more to be found; Christmas spices, rosehip and floral notes like lilies and freshly cut hay are the more obvious characters that we see. The supporting role of the oak intensifies the underlying tobacco and caramel notes. The palate shows a youthful intensity with a tendency to speak with great clarity. However, another more serene voice commands the fruit to spread out and surrender to the maze of tannins and juicy acidity that ascends from underneath. They bring a degree of order and longevity through their ripe phenolic compounds. The restrained power and silky, linear tannins are strikingly intricate and invite further examination. Like most of our Pinot noirs, the 2016 wine requires three to five years additional evolution for optimum drinking pleasure.”... more »
  • Dupont Tisserandot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers 2009 NZD $139.95 NZD $134.95
    "This is consistently one of the very best wines in the Dupont line-up and it often challenges the grands crus. The '09 version is a stunner and Chevillon professes that it is the best example of the vineyard that he has ever made. An ultra fresh and distinctly earthy nose offers up a cool nose of red pinot fruit that introduces rich, intense and mineral-driven broad-shouldered flavors that possess buckets of dry extract that buffer well the otherwise very firm tannic spine on the impressively long and mouth coating finish. This is definitely worth considering."91- 94pts, Allen Meadows, Burghound... more »
  • Joseph Voillot Pommard "Les Combes" 2005 NZD $84.95 NZD $79.95 Out of Stock

  • Joseph Voillot Pommard 1er Cru "Les Epenots" 2013 NZD $169.95 $159.95
    Pommard is a Burgundy lover’s dream and one of the very best 1er Cru is Les Epenots. Between Volnay and Beaune to the north, the vineyards have a fair amount of limestone and clay producing an intense, powerful yet elegant and perfectly balanced wine. At the moment it shows a bouquet of wild flowers, violets and lavender followed by a dense, concentrated and powerful palate. Superb now of course but better at around 10 years.... more »
  • Joseph Voillot Volnay 1er Cru "Les Champans" 2013 NZD $129.95 $119.95

  • 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 »
  • Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noir 2015 NZD $69.95 NZD $59.95
    Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noir has a reputation for elegance and ageability. This vintage continues the evolution under winemaker Todd Stevens. It’s fragrant; expressing plums, exotic spice, cracked pepper, Horopito for kiwis, brambles, mānuka bark and wood smoke. It’s rich but not overblown. The tannins are finely tuned and chiselled creating a wine which is groomed and precise. The Pinot Noir story in New Zealand has been changing as vine age takes hold and we celebrate Pinot of true beauty and restraint. We seek a melange of perfectly integrated flavours. In the Moutere we are happy to see Pinots with a refreshing, juicy acidity. Definitely deserving breast of duck, rack of lamb or grilled mushroom. ... more »

Oak handling is subtle and tannins are fine and rich and spread through the wine. Tom's Block can be enjoyed at all levels it is a generous Pinot to share over grilled lamb rack and garlicky potatoes or as a more intense experience with Confit of duck or a braise of rabbit.... more »

  • Pleasant Valley Pinot Noir 2013 NZD $22.95 NZD $21.95
    It's good to see that finally Pinot Noir winemakers in this country are waking up to the fact that not everybody wishes to spend $40-$50 to get a decent Pinot Noir. We were quite taken back by the quality of this wine, frankly we thought it would be between $40-$50 until we knew the price. It is a soft savoury and plumy Pinot Noir, in other words what Pinot Noir should be like. The 2013 vintage even though it was a good one, is ready for drinking now. Lovely cherry and soft plumy flavours, slightly savoury, well balanced oak and wonderful forrest floor characters. Having tried this alongside other Pinot Noirs at $30 let me tell you, it delivers!

  • Pyramid Valley Angel Flower Pinot Noir 2015 NZD $149.95 NZD $139.95

Planted in slopes of clay limestone soils with a density of 12,000 vines per hectare which is incredibly high and managed pretty much biodynamical. No artificial pesticides, herbicides and the wine is made reflecting the vineyard and its terroir which means natural fermentation, no filtration, no artificial yeasts and no finings. As a result you have a medium to full bodied, soft and beautifully textured Pinot Noir that exhibits dry herbs, lavender, violets yet profound, pure and focused. In our view, one of the very best in the country.... more »
