  • Ata Rangi Celebre 2014 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 2014 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 2015 NZD $57.95 NZD $49.95
    "Full straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, lighter edged. This has a finely proportioned and tightly bound nose with concentrated, vibrantly rich aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit harmoniously melded with creamy and nutty barrel-ferment notes and complex, but refines flinty lees and reductive elements, and soft lemon-curd MLF nuances, enriched by toasty oak. This is complex, detailed, layered, exuding vitality. Medium-bodied and elegant in presentation, the palate is taut and tightly bound, unfolding layers of yellow stonefruits, citrus fruits, nutty and toasty oak with nuances of gunflint. The mouthfeel is creamy and seamless from the fruit richness and barrel-ferment, the palate showing refined phenolics and balanced, refreshing acidity. This has excellent linearity, carrying to a very long and sustained stonefruity finish with complexing nutty and flinty detail. This is a beautifully elegant, detailed and complex Chardonnay with richness, intensity and refinement. Serve with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 5-6+ years. Mendoza clone fruit from the ‘Craighall’ vineyard, vines over 30 y.o., hand-picked and WBP, indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new barriques with partial MLF." – Raymond Chan... more »
  • Ata Rangi Lismore Pinot Gris 2014 NZD $42.95 NZD $38.95
    "Another lovely vintage following 2013, 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 Petrie Chardonnay 2015 NZD $32.95 NZD $29.95
    “Bright straw-yellow colour with light green-gold hues, paler on the rim. The nose is very fresh and tight, quite elegantly presented with good intensity of white stonefruits and subtle notes of citrus fruits entwined with flinty and minerally lees and balanced, nutty oak elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is taut, refined and tightly concentrated with a core of harmoniously melded flavours of white and yellow stonefruits, citrus fruits and complexing flint, mineral and nutty detail. The palate is bright, energetic and vibrant with a refined, textural line and fresh, lacy acidity enlivening the mouthfeel. The wine carries to a long, lingering and elegantly concentrated finish of stonefruit and flinty lees. This is a tightly bound, elegantly concentrated and harmoniously detailed Chardonnay with stonefruit, flint and nutty flavours. Serve with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 5 years. Clone 15 and 6 fruit from the ‘Petrie’ vineyard, East Taratahi, hand-picked and WBP, indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months on lees in 18% new barriques and puncheons with 30% MLF.” – Raymond Chan... more »
  • Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2015 NZD $99.95 NZD $78.95
    "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 »
  • Craggy Range Aroha Pinot Noir 2016 NZD $144.95 NZD $123.95
    Beautifully crafted Pinot Noir, low yields, wonderful extraction with a dense dark cherry colour. Complex brooding aromatics of black cherry, plum, rose and wooden spices. An excellent illustration of subtle power across the palate. Beautifully textured ripe fruit flows seamlessly across the palate with sinew and spice from stem and oak influence. The feel is precise, savoury and long.... more »
  • Dry River Chardonnay 2016 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 Craighall Riesling 2017 NZD $56.95 NZD $49.95
    “To achieve ripe flavours, soft tannins with an energetic acidity requires rigid vineyard management and multiple stage picking passes. The early picks of ‘clean’ fruit relied on the above and the maximum amount of sunlight ‘harvested’. The denser and more tropical flavours and aromatics depend on longer vineyard hang time, and therefore will be exposed to higher risk due to the changing weather. The result of the 2017 Riesling is nothing short of stunning, and a testament to the hard work by our vineyard team. White peach, ripe floral notes and mineral freshness show a dynamic between power and restraint. Rose’s Lime cordial, hints of nougat with orange and mandarin flesh and fennel and clove spices, would almost suggest this is Pinot Gris. At the same time, it is unmistakably Riesling. A small amount of residual sugar, five grams/litre, offers an appropriate entrance for the tropical fruit like pineapple, and even mango. So much of this wine is texture though. A voluptuous densely packed palate with texture and fruit weight makes a real statement. A friendly acidity salivates and draws the attention to the mid palate. Here, orange and grapefruit rind with citrus fruit dominate their space. The distinct linear acidity builds the palate up to a seamless long finish. Expect this wine to cellar well in a good cellar, best to drink after four to seven years.”... more »
  • Dry River Lovat Gewurztraminer 2014 NZD $89.95 NZD $84.95
    “Slightly dryer and less opulent than past vintages but with appealing, subtle layers of floral/rose petal, potpourri, and Oriental spice flavours. Silken-textured wine with a lengthy finish. Worth decanting my sample continued to grow in the glass for an hour.” --Bob Campbell... 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 »
