Untitled Pinot 3 The Red Edition
The Red Edition, same varieties as The Pink Edition but of course with more Pinot Noir in it but the Pinot Gris and the Pinot Blanc offers beautiful perfume, lovely aromas and gives it an extra lift of freshness and vitality. A lovely Pinot Noir which is light, soft and almost in the style of a Beaujolais for comparisons sake which you can put in the fridge for 20 mins or so and is absolutely stunning! Crisp and refreshing with lovely cherry flavours, excellent on its own or with food. Delicious!
Untitled Pinot 3 The Pink Edition
Unusual, different, new but bloody delicious! A blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc fermented separate and blended to produce a Rosé Provence style. Lovely acidity, fresh, clean and flinty with an immediate attack of wild strawberries, pink berries and subtle aromas of dry spice. Picture yourself in Waiheke having it with a beautiful piece of fish! It’s great, well priced and pink-a-licious!
Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay 2018
Usually the most flamboyant wine when young, the 2018 Coddington has a beautiful nose more fragrant and citrusy than usual for Coddington. This is a common thread through all the 2018 Chardonnays. The palate is classic Coddington with the density, concentration and luscious creaminess we expect from this wine. Deceptively easy to drink at this early stage this wine will no doubt take on lovely bottle age as it has done with previous vintages.
Kumeu River Hunting Hill Chardonnay 2017
The 2017 vintage was cool and windy and the hallmark of the Chardonnays is fragrance. This is particularly present in Hunting Hill with its typical lemon/lime blossom aromas on the nose. Hunting Hill was harvested before any weather episodes of 2017 and the fruit was clean with beautiful flavours. This has come through in the finished wine with a supple texture and lingering finish. As with previous vintages of Hunting Hill we expect this to drink well for 6 – 8 years.
Old Vine Chardonnay 2016
This is one of those super deals that do not come round that often but when they do, you should take it! Selected from old vines, this Chardonnay delivers an array of butterscotch, freshly baked bread but yet maintaining a lovely freshness and fruit flavours. Frankly you would expect to pay close to the $20 mark for a Chardonnay of this quality. It is ideal with white meats or fish, drinking very well now but will also keep for a year or two. Excellent value at $13.95.
