  • 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 »
  • 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 »
  • Simon Bize Bourgogne "Les Perrieres" Rouge 2015 NZD $52.95 NZD $49.95
    This is the red equivalent and also the entry level for Simon Bize but it’s beautifully made, medium to full body with a lovely texture, dry herbs, hints of rosemary and lavender and for an entry level red Burgundy, it punches well above its weight. Again being that it’s a 2015, it helps because it was such a superb vintage. Drinking well now or over the next 5-6 years.... more »
