White Wine

2014 St Clair Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

Trophy for Champion Sauvignon Blanc at the Air NZ Wine Awards. Crafted by Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark Aromas of intensely fragrant with passionfruit, blackcurrant bud and gooseberry with notes of tarragon and flint. The palate is rich and salty with tropical fruits, crushed minerals and wonderful length.


2013 Carrick Central Otago Dry Riesling


2012 L'Oratoire St Martin Haut Coustias Blanc

A serious white this is a blend of Roussanne, Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Marsanne that was aged in demi-muid. Offering a beautifully rich, classy bouquet of buttered toast, marzipan, honeycomb and white flowers, it is medium-bodied, textured and layered on the palate, yet stays remarkably fresh and lively. Showing tinges of minerality on the finish it will drink nicely for 2-3 years."


2011 Astrolabe Kekerengu Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Another superalative score ( 94/100 ) from Bob Campbell in Gourmet Traveller Magazine and this is the latest release. This is aged before release to give it time for the true characters to appear. "The Kekerengu Coast is a Limestone-rich area half way between Blenheim and Kaikoura. A percentage of the wine was fermented in oak using wild yeasts. Gunflint mineral characters with smoky, grapefruit and mealy flavours. Quite an intense and complex wine that reminds me a little of Pouilly Fume. Good food wine." 94/100 Bob Campbell.


2014 Eradus Awatere Sauvignon Blanc


2013 Millton Clos St Anne "Les Arbres" Viognier

Definitely one of NZ best viogniers'. From the steep sided biodynamic hillside vineyard called Les Arbes. 19-/20 from Raymond Chan writing "Fruit from ‘Les Arbres’ a section in the lie of the forest, the whole bunches ‘crunched’ and warm-fermented in 600 L demi-muids to 14.5% alc. and 1.8 g/L RS, the wine aged 11 months in 40% new demi-muids, the wine undergoing batonnage with 75% MLF. The bouquet is full and broad with well-concentrated aromas of ripe apricots and savoury yellow stonefruit kernels, lifted by exotic yellow florals. This has great presence, the fruit stylishly reserved, growing subtly in creamy, nutty richness. Dry to taste and full bodied, a fulsome and mouthfilling array of flavours of ripe, exotic tropical fruits are lifted by exotic yellow florals with nutty and honied notes. This is rich and weighty with a rounded, near unctuous mouthfeel and soft textures. The generosity is enhanced by some alcohol power which leads to a soft, full, rich finish with exotic floral and stonefruit flavours. This is a full, rich, mouthfilling Viognier with exotic fruit flavours and underlying power. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 5+ years. 19.0-/20


2014 Astrolabe Marlborough Pinot Gris

Another outstanding wine from the quality focused Astrolabe Winery. Only the highest quality fraction of free run juice has been used in this drier Pinot Gris, with most from whole cluster pressed hand picked bunches. "Pear and quince, light peach and citrus rind and a whiff of cardamom and nougat are on the nose with a palate that is pure and focussed with a delicacy of structure, finishing crisp and dry. Stonefruit and pear flavours dominate, followed by some light citrus.


2013 Cloudy Bay Marlbourgh Sauvignon Blanc Magnum

With the larger sized bottles keeping wine fresher these magnums are drinking beautifully. A great present or for the dinner party, we grabbed a small parcel of these with open arms. "N.Z.'s most internationally acclaimed wine is highly sought after from Sydney to New York and London.


2010 Herzog Malborough Chardonnay


2014 Dry River Martinborough Viognier

94/100 from Bob Campbell who writes "Rich, ripe Viognier with orange blossom, apricot, wildflowers and Oriental spices. Big, concentrated and powerful wine with mouth-filling flavours and an almost chewy texture. High alcohol of 14.5% heightens the sense of voluptuousness and adds warmth to the lengthy finish. The wine really evolved as it sat in the glass and will certainly benefit from decanting."
