    Alan McCorkindale has 21 years of international winemaking experience behind him, making wine in Burgundy, Champagne, Australia and Germany.

Extremely fresh and crisp with hints of lemon tart and citrus fruits. On the palate it offers complexity, richness and elegance with a wonderful balance of acidity texture and fruit.

  • Calabria Cool Climate Riesling 2017 NZD $21.95 NZD $19.95
    The Calabria Cool Climate Series is focused on producing the highest quality wine from small hand selected parcels of fruit with intense flavours. The 2017 Riesling was selected from a single vineyard within the high altitude Hilltops region near Young, NSW. An aromatic wine with a fragrance of lime juice and lemongrass; the vibrant palate lingers with a delicious minerality like the granitic soil in which it is grown.... more »
  • Dry River Craighall Riesling 2017 NZD $56.95 NZD $49.95
    “To achieve ripe flavours, soft tannins with an energetic acidity requires rigid vineyard management and multiple stage picking passes. The early picks of ‘clean’ fruit relied on the above and the maximum amount of sunlight ‘harvested’. The denser and more tropical flavours and aromatics depend on longer vineyard hang time, and therefore will be exposed to higher risk due to the changing weather. The result of the 2017 Riesling is nothing short of stunning, and a testament to the hard work by our vineyard team. White peach, ripe floral notes and mineral freshness show a dynamic between power and restraint. Rose’s Lime cordial, hints of nougat with orange and mandarin flesh and fennel and clove spices, would almost suggest this is Pinot Gris. At the same time, it is unmistakably Riesling. A small amount of residual sugar, five grams/litre, offers an appropriate entrance for the tropical fruit like pineapple, and even mango. So much of this wine is texture though. A voluptuous densely packed palate with texture and fruit weight makes a real statement. A friendly acidity salivates and draws the attention to the mid palate. Here, orange and grapefruit rind with citrus fruit dominate their space. The distinct linear acidity builds the palate up to a seamless long finish. Expect this wine to cellar well in a good cellar, best to drink after four to seven years.”... more »
