Wines by Country: 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

    “From clay-rich soils in Marlborough’s Southern Valley. A mouth-filling chardonnay with ripe peach, grapefruit, ginger, cashew nut and guava flavours supported by juicy acidity. Drink 2021 to 2026.” – Bob Campbell 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

  • Corofin Folium Vineyard Chardonnay 2019 $59.99 $49.99
    The Folium Vineyard is located in Marlborough’s Brancott Valley. Planted in 1996, this beautiful site has been owned and tended with sensitive practices since 2011 by the inimitable Takaki Okada. Soil is Southern Valley Clay sitting on top of gravelly silt meaning that Chardonnay and Pinot Our from this dry-grown site have ripeness, precision and harmony.
    “From a non-irrigated vineyard in the heart of the Brancott Valley. Rich, ripe and concentrated chardonnay with white peach, ginger, vanilla, lime, citrus and spicy oak flavours. A mellow, mouth-watering wine from a top vintage. Drink 2021 to 2027.” – Bob Campbell 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.

  • Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc "Pioneer Block 2017 $29.99 $24.99
    This is the “Foundation” release of Saint Clair’s Sauvignon Blanc which along side the rest of their releases is showing to be some excellent single vineyard Sauvignon. Pale straw in colour, this Sauvignon displays powerful and intense aromas of passionfruit, blackcurrant, hints of grapefruit and an underlying mineral note. This is an intense Sauvignon Blanc with a powerful spectrum and an underlying mineral tone. The palate is intensely concentrated and full with a long, lingering finish. Ideal with some fresh salmon or scallops alongside a lovely summer salad. Drink now or cellar for 2 years.

  • Old Vine Sauvignon Blanc 2020 $14.99 $13.99
    Another exceptional offering for this very much underrated producer, it came to us by accident trying some top New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and this just happened to come out on top. Fruity, flinty and aromatic, a barrage of gooseberry and lychee but dry with a lengthy middle palate, succulence and balance, what really good old fashioned Sauvignon Blanc used to be and the main thing really, all for $13.95. An absolute bargain!

  • Pleasant Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019 $17.99 $16.99
    The brand new vintage of this lovely and excellent value Sav/Blanc, when it came to the crunch and the all important value for money it delivers hands down. Not just your usual grassy, semi-sweet run of the mill Sav/Blanc but a wine that truly captures the essence of Marlborough, lovely acidity, pungent with beautiful middle palate and concentration, very clean and generous also full body, classic Marlborough really. At $16.95 per bottle it is hard to pass considering the quality of many commercial ones on the same price bracket.

  • Pleasant Valley Pinot Noir 2018 $19.99 $18.99
    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.
