  • 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.

  • Ata Rangi Craighall Chardonnay 2016 NZD $57.95 NZD $49.95
    The 2016 bears all the hallmarks of classic Craighall on the nose - stone fruit, almond biscotti and lime zest. On the palate, it is rich on entry with a supple and enticing mid structure, before flowing into a long and lingering mineral finish. Fully barrel fermented with wild indigenous yeasts, this exceptional release has excellent cellaring potential.... more »
  • Ata Rangi Lismore Pinot Gris 2016 NZD $42.95 NZD $38.95
    "Another lovely vintage following, this offering shows that classis 'gris' pear-and-almond-tart character, along with ripe nectarine, a hint of kaffir lime leaf and a touch of pithy grapefruit. The palate is rich and powerful, with a minerally texture and a long, intense finish. With just 6g/l residual sugar, it is a delicious stand-alone aperitif, and also perfect with Thai and other Asian influenced food. Our hard-working friends Ro & Lyle Griffiths own and meticulously manage the beautiful Lismore Vineyard nearby, and are totally committed to delivering the finest fruit possible, year after year."... more »
  • Ata Rangi McCrone Pinot Noir 2014 NZD $98.95 NZD $89.95
    Ata Rangi's McCrone Vineyard was originally established by our team for friends Don and Carole McCrone who also grow Pinot Noir for leading Oregon producer Ken Wright Cellars. By 2001, when this 6-acre vineyard was planted, we had 20 years of Pinot experience and were able to choose clones and trellising styles that we considered consistently top performing. Unlike our own vineyard soil profiles,the McCrone site just around the corner in Regent St has a smattering of clay within the gravels. The cooling effect of this clay delivers a distinctively different aroma and flavour profile than that of the Ata Rangi Pinot Noir, even with vine age taken into account. The 2014 is the fifth release from this single site. Bottled in August 2015 this wine has been allowed to slowly evolve prior to release two years on. A bolder style than our flagship Pinot Noir, the nose offers a depth of rich spicy notes with a hint of manuka flower. It opens on the palate with a big swell of flavor supported by fine, velvety tannins. The finish is juicy and complex, with an evolution of flavours into a more savoury, umami style.... more »
  • Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2015 NZD $99.95 NZD $79.95
    "Very seductive pinot noir combining a sensual, silken texture with layers of complex fruit and savoury flavours. The wine has structure but it is deeply buried within a core of sweet fruit. Dark-fleshed plum, violet, cherry, spice and very subtle fresh herbs are among the more obvious flavours in this supremely complex wine. Outstanding! 8/8/2017" – Bob Campbell... more »
  • Ata Rangi Sauvignon Blanc 2016 NZD $29.95 NZD $24.95
    "Helen has worked very hard at making a style that is suited to her fruit and the district, giving a point of difference to the passionfruity thiol-monsters of the 2016 Marlborough vintage. Elegance, freshness of fruit, more methoxypyrazine gooseberry fruit, bright acidity and delicate textures were the aim, and for this, she’s used some skin contact and 30% in barrel. Very pale straw. The nose is tight and elegant with ripe yellow stonefruits and green stonefruits, and no tropical fruit. On palate crisp and steely with a slippery mouthfeel. Gooseberry fruit with subtle textures and detail. But the fruit and freshness prevail. It’s a more slender wine than some of the worked examples made elsewhere." – Raymond Chan... more »
  • Dry River Chardonnay 2017 NZD $74.95 NZD $58.95
    "A melee of roasted Chestnuts, chalk and floral notes, are supplemented with biscotti, custard, peach and nectarine. Fresh lime sorbet and lemon blossom lift the aromatics to keep the nose playful. Thanks to a small proportion of Malo-Lactic conversion, the palate is evenly spread and transparent and gains some additional mouthfeel. With neither component dominant, the aromatic richness is effortlessly suppressed by either oak or the character stemming from extended maturation on lees. The focus is therefore multifaceted, shifting between acidity, texture and fruit in fast pace. White flesh peach, Braeburn apple and green kiwifruit, happily make way for salivating citrus fruit and silken creamy texture. An energetic back palate lifts the wine and allows for a long lingering finish. Our Chardonnay evolves slowly in the cellar, expect this wine to reach good maturity after three to five years."... more »
  • Dry River Craighall Riesling 2018 NZD $59.95 NZD $49.95
    “The pale golden colour reflects that of freshness and rigor. Tropical peach and kiwifruit characters reflect the warmer vintage in 2018. However, since we picked this very early - 14 March, we were able to maintain the subtle fragrancies we seek out in Riesling; lime sherbet, lemon zest and apple blossom. The additional benefit of an early harvest is that we retain a strong mineral acidity, which manifests on the nose in the form of wet river rocks and citrus blossom. The palate follows a similar pattern to the nose: dense with a touch of sweetness at the entrance which makes it feel broad, with ripe fruit flavours. We often see the more tropical influence from our Craighall block 5 Riesling, which is planted with a better aspect to the sun. Craighall block 6 Riesling is planted perpendicular to block 5, east/west, causing more shading of the fruit. This brings out a palate that is long and drawn out with chalky phenolics which highlight the textural feel of the wine. The acidity creates a fresh tension to firm up the wine and show a linear and horizontal structure. This firm acidity helps to salivate the mouth and drive the wine creating a long finish, which makes it a good food matching wine. Expect this wine to further evolve for optimal drinking pleasure after three to five years.”... more »
  • Dry River Lovat Gewurztraminer 2018 NZD $59.95 NZD $49.95
    “Hallmark aromatics of quince, ginger, rose petals and lychee are seamlessly woven into more difficult to decipher aromatics; perfumed stone fruits and papaya with lifted spices. Some of the 2018 Botrytis bunch selection wine was blended into this to provide some more depth - honey suckle and orange peel characters with fresh, dried herbs. The palate is structured, even a bit stern at first, then becoming more ‘elastic’ and viscous with the alcohol spreading through the wine, giving an element of buoyancy. The well natured character is reflective of the vintage: warm, calm, soft with a bright spark and a friendly twinkle. The botrytis portion expresses honey rate and orange marmalade. We see a marked duality in the evolution over the palate where it spreads and broadens, then dries and salivates, but is never lost in direction. If possible, refrain from drinking this wine for the first two to three years, it will open up and soften beautifully.”... more »
  • Dry River Pinot Gris 2018 NZD $64.95 NZD $54.95
    “Here it shows the heavier aromatics to symbolise its deep foundation through vanilla, toffee, dulce de leche and ripe pears. Fresh characters like melon, fennel and honey suckle bring lightness and are likely to reflect fruit from our younger pinot gris block. This wine spent a long time maturing on lees, partly in oak barrels, to bring aromatic complexity in the form orange cake and nougat. An overwhelming sensation of grace and serenity hit us when tasting this wine for the first time after blending. Comforting and luscious, the gentle nature is like a welcome home wine, if you don’t mind the sweetness of the residual sugar. Its translucent and timid character make it rich and buoyant without the bling factor. The creamy fluffy textural element is that of a groomed gruffness, presumably from the time on lees in barrel, with hints of liquorice root and rock melon. Our Pinot Gris gives drinking pleasure as a young wine, but is rewarding with time in your cellar – preferably five to seven years.”... more »
  • Dry River Pinot Noir 2017 NZD $99.95 NZD $89.95
    “The nose is very attractive, with a perfume-like finesse and a lighter than usual appearance. A fresh, complex and floral nose shows Christmas lilies, violets and honeysuckle. There are the hallmark, darker Dry River characters of fruit of the forest, plum and berry compote, mixed with a gentle touch of oak. Upon first approach the wine is soft and broad, with ripe, almost sweet fruit characters on the front of the palate. The intricate and round tannins have a mature presence with seamless integrated oak, something we would normally only see after two to three years. Towards the mid palate the wine is gaining power with a dynamic force, presumably a combination of the fruit and tannin density, governed through a radiant acidity. The structured finish is long and abundant in fruit, lingering to ponder the interest in the typicity of the vintage. Though approachable as a young wine, the 2017 will benefit from three to five years additional evolution for optimum drinking pleasure.”... more »
  • Dry River Viognier 2014 NZD $54.95 NZD $46.95 Out of Stock
    At first glance the impression of the colour is yellow, which transforms into a bright golden aspect. An oily and candied nose with instantly identifiable peach and apricot bring a calming effect. This is a delightfully moderate aromatic wine full of complex aromas of lanolin, honeysuckle and mango. We believe Viognier is a variety which should show a viscous and buoyant palate, not driven by acidity, but by a soft texture and alcohol.... more »
  • James Pinot Gris 2008 NZD $36.95 NZD $29.95 Out of Stock
    The beautiful luscious and concentrated Pinot Gris that exhibits flavours of ripe pear, fig and Turkish delight, very aromatic yet quite profound and balanced. This is drinking very well now or over the next couple of years. Ideal with white meats and fish.... more »
  • James Syrah 2008 NZD $46.95 NZD $39.95
    A new addition to Colin Carruthers’ Red Bank Estate and frankly, outstanding Syrah, one of the best around! Styled in the Cotes du Rhone, it’s peppery with black olive, excellent depth and structure. Even though it is drinking very well now, it will also cellar for another 3-4 years. Taking into account the high price of New Zealand Syrahs, this really offers excellent value for money.... more »
  • Ma Maison Chardonnay 2010 NZD $52.95 NZD $46.95 Out of Stock
    This is one of the up and coming stars in Martinborough that has been able to capture the essence of true Chardonnay. For lovers of white Burgundy, in particular Mersault, you will find it very familiar. Made from a small holding of mainly Mendoza clone Chardonnay with an abundant aroma of white peach, melon and nectarine and left on its lees for an extended period of time but not stirred which gives it a bottle fermented Champagne character. Full malolactic is given to the wine with no fining or filtration resulting in a creamy, soft and well balanced texture with lovely acidity, focus and accuracy. Frankly one of the very best Chardonnay’s that we’ve come across in the last few years. Will also cellar for another 3-5 years.... more »
  • Te Muna Valley Viognier 2013 NZD $36.95 NZD $29.95 Out of Stock
    The latest addition from Colin Carruthers from his outstanding range of wines, this Viognier is densly planted from an existing farm that he has owned since 1998. The wine is rich, complex and full bodied with a nectarine, dry herbs and oily texture. It is exactly what you would expect from a top notch Viognier. Delineated, crisp, precise and flinty. Excellent with shell fish or white meats. Drink now or over the next 3-4 years.... more »
