  • 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 $69.95
    Straw coloured with green hues. This wine sits so comfortably within its framework that descriptors other than ‘pure Chardonnay’ almost seem trivial and inadequate. This wine is a stunning example of Chardonnay and a wine we have put a lot of thought into. Fruit characters such as white nectarine and citrus mingle with the subtle nuttiness of toasted and crushed almonds. Notes of brioche almost span the components of the wine-coming individually from barrels, the aging on lees, or both? The palate is extremely rich, which belies the fact that the alcohol is very low. This is definitely one of the most complex Chardonnays we have produced but still carrying the definitive Dry River DNA. Expect this wine to age very well in the cellar.... more »
  • Dry River Lovat Gewurztraminer 2017 NZD $56.95 NZD $49.95
    “Due to a long “hang” time in the vineyard this year, we see recognisable hallmarks of ripe Gewürztraminer; rose petals, lychee, mandarin and grapefruit rind. Since our aim is to produce a full bodied wine with a high aromatic density, yet a restraint and elegance, we generally make several picks through this vineyard at different ripening times. The last picking pass was with a high portion of Botrytis infected fruit, which is showcased by clover honey, candied ginger, Turkish delight and linalool. With the dense and ripe aromatics on display on the nose, the palate is surprisingly more light weight with a lower residual sugar than usual, 17 grams/litre. The consequence of this is a gentle entrance. However, the wine spreads fast and evenly, covering the complete palate with a friendly and buoyant mouthfeel. Good “housekeeping” is the playful threesome interaction between the fruit weight, the density and acidity. The latter keeps the wine fresh, alive and allows for a long and linear finish. This wine can be enjoyed young, or after five to eight years for added complexity.”... more »
  • Dry River Pinot Gris 2015 NZD $74.95 NZD $69.95
    Where in the last few years this wine showed rich and powerful aromatics, now elegance, refinement and authority are key words. Again, a purity of flavours is overarching a base layer of savoury components. The gentle scent of harakeke in flower, Nashi pear and exotic tropical aromas like papaya and guava are combined with butterscotch and vanilla custard. There is no clear division of taste, but a complexity that knows no boundaries or demarcations. Of recognisable interest are pistachio nuts, nougat and vanilla liqueur, further heightened with raisin pinwheels. Those familiar with it might recognise the traditional German amalgamation of fruit compote Rumtopf, without the excessive alcohol. The acidity acts as a faithful servant, maintaining freshness and length. We praise this wine for its early approachability, but it will certainly gain further interest over the next five to seven years.... more »
  • Dry River Pinot Gris 2017 NZD $64.95 NZD $58.95
    “The defining influences that typify our Pinot Gris are, like always, vineyard related. No irrigation, high exposure to sunshine and small berries contribute and guarantee a base standard of deep concentration, structure and texture. Timing of picking is late, mid- to late April, and for the 2017 vintage the above were fundamental to this aromatic wine and avoided any lingering dilution. The fresh and lively aromatics form an interesting mix, where balance and restraint are key fundamentals of this wine. This year the wild flowers form the lively aspect and are the most noticeable, apple and orange blossoms provide the fresh characteristics. The nose is further filled with crushed apple, golden kiwi fruit and nashi pear. We were able to reduce the residual sugar levels for this vintage, this assists the refined palate in showing a little more minerality. As for the nose, the palate shows dense and transparent flavours of stone fruit and peach, with a gracious and unpretentious attitude. Part of the wine has been matured in French oak for 10 months, on lees. This helped to accentuate the length of the wine and bring more charm to the textural elements and pave a path for the fruit to shine. We predict this wine to evolve for the next three to five years and bring drinking pleasure for several years to follow.”... more »
  • Dry River Pinot Noir 2016 NZD $96.95 NZD $89.95
    “The 2016 vintage was our driest growing year in recent wine cultivation history. Fruit set was above average, and combined with good heat accumulation the resulting wine certainly shows ample concentration. Care was exercised in maintaining yield, approximately four tonnes/ha, and vigilant winegrowing techniques enabled ripening of what I consider to be a classic and refined Dry River Pinot Noir. Immediately red currant, strawberries and plum fruit deliver an aromatic hit. Though primary red fruit are visibly dominant, there is more to be found; Christmas spices, rosehip and floral notes like lilies and freshly cut hay are the more obvious characters that we see. The supporting role of the oak intensifies the underlying tobacco and caramel notes. The palate shows a youthful intensity with a tendency to speak with great clarity. However, another more serene voice commands the fruit to spread out and surrender to the maze of tannins and juicy acidity that ascends from underneath. They bring a degree of order and longevity through their ripe phenolic compounds. The restrained power and silky, linear tannins are strikingly intricate and invite further examination. Like most of our Pinot noirs, the 2016 wine requires 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 »
