  • Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay 2019 $71.99 $61.99
    “The 2019 vintage was exceptional and has produced sensational Chardonnay across the board. The single-vineyard Coddington wine is strongly coloured and richly ripe in the yellow peach and apricot spectrum, with a background of toasted oak and caramelised hazelnut. It is the biggest style in our range, and satisfyingly rich as such, but also nicely balanced with its acidity.”

Hunting Hill is very distinctive in its terroir typicity, with piercing lemon/lime fruit lift and florality on the nose, richness and volume in the mouth followed by lingering acidity and minerality on the finish. This is an absolute classic example of how great the Chardonnay grape can be: A beautifully powerful, yet elegant and complex wine with long term aging ability.”

  • Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay 2019 $34.99 $29.99
    "The 2019 vintage was exceptional and has produced the finest Estate Chardonnay that any of us can remember. The Kumeu vineyards that contribute to this wine gave us some magnificent fruit and we had a wide array of options in putting the Estate Chardonnay blend together. The level of citrus fruit complexity, and the layering of aromas and flavours that this wine shows are stunning. This is a quality Chardonnay wine of style and pedigree that is delicious now but has the capability of aging as well as if not better than any of its predecessors."

  • Kumeu River Maté's Vineyard Chardonnay 2019 $94.99 $89.99
    “The 2019 vintage was exceptional and produced sensational Chardonnay across all our vineyards. Mate’s Vineyard is always the last site we pick each year. In 2019 the grapes certainly had the distinctive Mendoza millerandage, giving many small berries along with the normal sized ones, and as a result a wonderfully concentrated palate texture and fruit richness. Although still somewhat shy on the nose coming out of the barrel, with bottle age the full palette of complex aromas and bouquet of this wonderful wine will be gradually and seductively revealed.”

  • Mount Edward Riesling 2018 $31.99 $29.99
    In the last 10-15 years, Central Otago has surged ahead in the production of outstanding Pinot Noir, lately they have also extended their search towards Riesling. Mt. Edward is perhaps the best exponent of both in this area and their Riesling (whenever it is available) is a true revelation of what can be done with this variety. The 2018 vintage has been one of the best for awhile, having tried it a few months ago it was already showing a lovely floral perfume, great texture and perfect acidity, made in an off-dry style and not overly alcoholic it is outstanding in its youth but will also cellar for another 3-4 years. Without doubt one of the best Rieslings in the country.

  • Mount Edward Pinot Noir 2018 $54.99 $49.99
    The latest release from Mt. Edward that from humble beginnings has become one of the benchmark producers in Central Otago. The 2018 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.

Marlborough

  • Corofin Wrekin Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019 $59.99 $49.99
    The Wrekin occupies its own small locality tucked into the foothills of Marlborough’s Southern Valleys. Farmed bio-dynamically it is fast becoming a site of significance on the region’s vineyard landscape. The Wrekin’s clay soils, which are laid over greywacke parent rock, contribute hugely to the singularity of the wines made from this site: depth and texture with a salty twist.

    “Imagine it’s Christmas and you’ve cooked a leg of ham and studded it with cloves; this is the first impression of the wine. Then throw in a sprig of rosemary and a bunch of violets, et voilà, you get the impression of this idiosyncratic scent. With its meaty, almost feral, flavors and structured style, it marks a real contrast with Corofin’s delicate and pretty Settlement Vineyard Pinot Noir. It offers a high level of concentration, which is due to low yields – around 30hl/ha. While it has a sense of silken delicacy on the midpalate, the grippy tannins provide a firm but fine, chalky-textured grip. It’s a very good wine with personality plus, but the personality might be more appreciated by those willing to drink left of center. Drink 2022 to 2028.” – Rebecca Gibb MW

  • Corofin Settlement Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019 $59.99 $49.99
    Settlement Vineyard is planted on the slopes of the Omaka Valley in Marlborough. Owned by Dog Point and managed with immense intelligence and insight by viticulturist Nigel Sowman. East Slope lies in a north-north-east orientation and is planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare on clay-rich soils. BioGro certified. Their first and the youngest of their grower micro-sites; precious, and as usual radiating its earthy warmth, freshness and red-fruitedness. Quite sleek (vintage) but it gets around. The energy and generosity are to enjoy every time.

    “There’s no sense of trying too hard in this wine. Everything is relaxed and silken. The fruit hails from Dog Point’s youngest Pinot block in the Omaka Valley: it’s a low-yielding slope. In the winery, the ferment is composed of whole berries and there’s no new oak, creating a highly aromatic, very pretty style. It’s delightfully scented with red berries and dried herbs – a potpourri of rosemary, thyme and wormwood – plus a bitter-orange-like twist on the finish. Light-bodied and refined with delicate tannins. Drink 2021 to 2026.” – Rebecca Gibb MW

  • Clayvin Marlborough Chardonnay Single Vineyard The Fuder Series 2016 $58.99 $49.99
    Marlborough has also established a great reputation for its Chardonnays with continually fine new examples appearing on stage.
    There is no wine anywhere in the world that tastes like the wine of Marlborough. Balance, purity and intense flavour set around impressive aroma, distinctive fruit and appealing balanced acidity is unrivalled. This Chardonnay has a great pedigree: the grapes are organically grown and sourced from the world renowned and revered Clayvin Vineyard owned by the Gisen Family, one of the oldest New Zealand wine producers, making wine since 1981 and awarded Winery of the Year in 2018.
    Established in 1991, Clayvin Vineyard is a north facing hillside vineyard, the vineyard planting is high density. This density creates natural competition among the vines, reducing vigour, promoting root structure and intensity of flavour. It also means that the vineyard only produces ‘one bottle of Clayvin Chardonnay per vine’. Definitely worth savouring! Where does the name Fuder come from? Fuders are a 1000 litre German Oak barrel in which the wine is fermented and aged. The use of these particular barrels ensures the wine develops a greater complexity and refinement because oak doesn’t dominate giving greater depth and complexity.
    This is an intense, rich and complex Chardonnay offering ripe peaches, honey and cashews with brioche nuance. It encompasses both savoury and mineral flavours. On the palate it has a satiny texture which is complemented by a lively acid backbone, and finishing with lingering honey notes.

    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 2018 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! All of this at the price of $19.99.

  • Dry River Pinot Noir 2019 $104.99 $98.99
    "There is a light charred oak note present, easily confused with toasted almonds. Flowery scents like cherry blossom, violets and Christmas lilies are combined with plums, boysenberry and liquorice. Immediately the nose reveals this to be a serious wine: very coherent with rapidly expanding boundaries bringing aromatic volume.

    The palate, too, has an escalating horizon and an inflating edge; it’s simply delicious, with well-rounded tannins. Initially there is a juicy, plush elegance, with the tannins claiming a more authoritative and luxurious presence, showing off its class and flamboyance. The mid-palate brings the wine back to earth with a grounding acidity that reigns the wine in again without overpowering the fruit weight. It is just enough to bring life again to the floral and lighter fruit aromatics, to highlight the central core and to show the length and smooth finish on the back palate. This is a thought-provoking wine that occupies all spaces and has aroused our excitement tremendously.

    We expect this wine to gain further interest over the next ten years."

  • Pyramid Valley Angel Flower Pinot Noir 2016 $129.99 $114.99
    “A wine with considerable, deep-set, spicy allure that has aromas of dried roses, blueberries, purple cherries and pot-pourri. The palate delivers a beautifully plush array of fine and seamless tannins, an exceptionally smooth mouthfeel and a long, alluring and convincing finish. Drink now. Screw cap.” 96/100 – James Suckling

  • Tongue in Groove Riesling 2015 $34.99 $27.99
    Spicy aromas of black and white pepper abound with a heady perfume of orange blossom, mandarin skin essence, grapefruit and melon with hints of apricot kernels. The palate is rich and full yet with an elegance and purity at the same time; this is portrayed by the ripe flavours of passionfruit, orange and honey which is complimented by white pepper and lime zest. The palate is rich and long yet perfectly balanced by the acid leaving ones mouth cleansed and refreshed, making another glass irresistible.
