  • Alain Graillot Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2011 NZD $39.95 NZD $34.95
    Just landed the new release 2011 and as always 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 balance and juicy almost chunky with mineral notes and tapenade. It will evolve over the next 4-5 years and cellar even longer.... 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 »

  • 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. "... more »
  • Awaroa Melba Peach Syrah 2013 NZD $59.95 NZD $56.95

  • Dos Dedos Syrah Viognier 2009 NZD $43.95 $34.95

A classic field blend from 5 parcels that redefines the concept of Old Vine Garnacha in Aragon.... more »
  • Ernie Els Big Easy Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 NZD $36.95 NZD $34.00
    When it comes to blends in the new world, no one does it like South Africa. This is a blend of 6 different grapes from very different native origins such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Viognier. However the end result is that they complement and enhance each other, the end result is a full bodied wine with purity, focus and wonderful dimension, very exotic almost wild, it really encapsulates South Africa perfectly.

  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Landonne 2013 NZD $599.95 $549.95
    “La Landonne is never destemmed and is always the last of the single-vineyard wines to be picked. Philippe Guigal calls it “the most Pauillac of the Cote Roties,” and the 2013 Cote Rotie La Landonne bears that out. It’s slightly austere and firmly tannic, with attractive floral aromas and layers of dark fruit that will require time to fully emerge.” -- 95+/100 Wine Advocate “The most brooding nose of the trio of La La's with dark coal smoky aromas and dark stones, graphite and cocoa powder. Fruits are in the very dark plum and blackberry spectrum but flavors are held in a more savory mode with assertive, powerful clean-cut tannins that hold endless length. Truly a masterpiece. Best from 2022 and for two decades or more.” -- 97 pts James Suckling... more »
  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline 2013 NZD $599.95 $549.95
    “The 2013 Cote Rotie La Mouline shows none of the vintage’s sometimes dry tannins. It offers crisp black fruit—plums and blackberries—underscored by hints of pencil shavings, espresso and grilled meat. Suave and long, it should drink well for a couple of decades.” -- 94/100 Wine Advocate “An array of sweet-smelling spices and a green-ish pepper edge to the nose with plenty of dark plums, crushed dark violety florals and grilled raisin toast. The palate has smooth, sweeping tannins that build in waves of pastry-like, plush and velvety texture. Long blood plum and creamy espresso finish. Drink now and beyond.” -- 97 pts James Suckling... more »
  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Turque 2013 NZD $599.95 $549.95
    “The 2013 Cote Rotie La Turque is a bit firm, austere and cool. It’s medium-bodied and tannic, with some drying notes on the finish that suggest further cellaring is warranted. Yes, it shows ample concentration and complex notes of plums and raspberries, but patience will be required.” -- 94 pts Wine Advocate “An air of deep-set complexity. Plenty of baking spices and toastiness with blackberry, pepper, wet stones and concrete. Extremely complex and fragrant. The palate delivers a supple, plush and luxuriant texture with masses of sweet spices and succulent blackberry fruit. Dark chocolate finish that's elegant and concentrated. Drink now and for two decades at least.” -- 96 pts James Suckling... more »
