  • Alan McCorkindale Syrah 2013 NZD $39.95 NZD $36.95 Out of Stock
    Made exclusively from Syrah grown in Hawkes Bay and 2013 being a great vintage, this is just as close to the Northern Rhone as you can get in New Zealand.

  • Ata Rangi Celebre 2015 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 2015 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.

  • Bruno Thierry Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2013 NZD $68.95 NZD $59.95
    We have been importing this producer for a number of years now who is both a negociants and grower producing a wide range of top Cotes du Rhone wines. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is probably one of the best known appellations from this area and also one of the most prestigious. The 2013 vintage is a classic for this appellation and is showing very well now with a brick red purple colour on appearance, and a perfume of black olive, dry herb and black pepper. On the palate it's generous, tightly structured, clean and pure with hints of tapenade, crushed black pepper corns and roasted capsicum. Drink now or cellar for another 3-5 years.... more »

A wine that will sit very comfortably along other Syrah at $30 plus. Drink now or keep for another 2-3 years.... more »
  • Chateau de Nalys Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Grand Vin 2016 NZD $159.95 $149.95
    “Destined to become Nalys's new flagship (unless the white version steals the show), the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Grand Vin is a blend of 59% Grenache, 32% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 3% Counoise and 1% Vaccarèse. It is full-bodied and velvety, offering hints of vanilla and sandalwood, but there also are layers of dark cherry fruit. Subtle notes of cinnamon, clove and allspice add interest to the long, silky finish. It is an auspicious debut for the Guigal team.” 95 pts – Wine Advocate ... more »
  • Chateau de Nalys Saint Pierres de Nalys Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2016 NZD $89.95 $79.95
    “The "second wine" of Nalys, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Saintes Pierres is a blend of 69% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Cinsault, 4% Muscardin, and 1% each Counoise and Mourvèdre. It was put together by the Guigal team, although the vinification’s took place prior to the acquisition. It's an attractive, full-bodied wine that delivers ripe cherries, a hint of stone fruit and very supple tannins. It's a bit too easy to think it will be a long-term cellar candidate, but it is a ripe, juicy mouthful of fruit to drink over the next 6-7 years.” 92 pts – Wine Advocate ... more »
  • Craggy Range Le Sol Syrah 2016 NZD $144.95 NZD $123.95

  • Dos Dedos Syrah Viognier 2009 NZD $43.95 $34.95
    Made by Noel Robertson M.W. originally from Scotland but based in Spain for over the last 20 odd years. He basically specialises in getting very old vines, low yielding, with spectacular concentration and depth. This is basically what this is, old vine Syrah which is impeccably rich, powerful and concentrated, almost reminiscent of a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, the 2009 is drinking beautifully now, full bodied, expressive with great power and clarity and even though it is approachable now, it will also cellar for the next 5 years plus.... more »
  • El Mondongo 2015 NZD $49.95 NZD $46.95
    Wildly aromatic with notes of wild red fruits and spice. The Syrah brings some flesh and freshly ground pepper to the mix, whilst the subtle seasoning of Moristel, Garnacha Blanca and Bobal (locally known as Provechon) add gentle notes of lemon thyme and other Mediterranean herbs. A classic field blend from 5 parcels that redefines the concept of Old Vine Garnacha in Aragon.... more »

    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.

  • Guigal Cote Rotie La Landonne 2015 NZD $699.95 $599.95
    “Of all the terrific single-vineyard Cote Roties I tasted at Guigal this year, I’m most confident that this wine will ultimately reach perfection after bottling. The 2015 Cote Rotie La Landonne is incredibly rich and concentrated, yet it remains detailed and complex, with plum and cassis flavors accented by hints of pencil shavings, espresso, black olives, roasted meat and dark chocolate. Full-bodied and solidly built, it combines that power with a velvety feel and a nearly endless finish. Wow.” 98 -100 – Wine Advocate ... more »

Full-bodied, rich and velvety yet ethereal at the same time, this incredibly long wine should prove to be a legend.” 98-100 – Wine Advocate ... more »
