2010 Vidal Legacy Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

Elite Gold Air NZ Wine Awards, Gold NZIWS, Gold Royal Easter Show, 5 Stars top 10 Cuisine Chardonnay Tasting, 5 Stars M.Cooper, 5 Stars Winestate Magazine. "(This new flagship Chardonnay has replaced the former Reserve label.) The debut 2010 vintage (5*) is a beautifully poised, youthful wine, hand-picked at four sites (two in the Gimblett Gravels, Maraekakaho and the Ohiti Valley), fermented mostly with indigenous yeasts, and lees-aged for a year in French oak barriques. The bouquet is smoky, with a hint of gunflint; the palate is mouthfilling, refined and tight-knit, with peachy, slightly nutty flavours, showing lovely delicacy and richness. It's a thought-provoking wine with great cellaring potential; open 2014+."

2013 Ridge Vineyards Chardonnay

91/100 from Antonio Galloni writing "The 2013 Chardonnay Estate is classy, understated and polished. Lemon peel, yellow orchard fruit, mint and a gentle hint of spice open up in the glass. A hint of reduction typical of the Ridge Chardonnays is present, which means readers should either cellar the 2013 for at least a few years or give it a good deal of aeration. There is a lot to like in this delicate, delineated Chardonnay from Ridge.

2013 Domaine du Bagnol Cassis Blanc

A great new wine from a new producer for us. Domaine du Bagnol is a tiny producer with vineyards situated beneath a dramatic limestone outcrop on the hill above the sun-soaked village of Cassis in Southern France, just 200 metres from the Mediterranean. This is a beautiful dry and juicy white with fresh white fruit flavours. A perfect match with seafood dishes. Marsanne (51%) is the dominant grape variety complemented by Clairette Blanc (31%) and some Ugni Blanc (18%). The vineyards to produce the white wine at Bagnol cover a bit less than 9 hectares and are planted on a gentle slope of clay and limestone soil with a north – northwest exposure. After a manual harvest, the grapes are destemmed and pressed; the fermentation continues for three weeks in cement cuves at a temperature controlled 18 degrees Celsius; the wine is vinified completely dry.

2014 Okiwa Marlborugh Sauvignon Blanc

Made by the superb Highfield Winery and overdelivers for the money. Aromas of ripley scented stonefruit, guava and gooseberry and hints of soft herbs and passionfruit. The palate is fruit-driven and textural bursting with fresh pineapple grapefruit and gooseberry flavours. A long and refreshing wine with good complexity and a soft citrus finish. Wonderful with seafood. Well done Highfield.

$15.99

2014 Cloudy Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is a definitive expression of the region and its season. Appealing concentration and poise suggests a wine with the ability to age. The nose is bright with aromas of kaffir lime and grapefruit. A generous palate reveals ripe citrus, stone fruit and lemongrass flavours balanced by crunchy acidity. Perhaps the hallmark of this vintage is its persistent finish rich with minerality.

2014 Stanley Estate Single Vineyard Awatere Chardonnay

Normal RRP $28 and with Eveline Fraser ( ex Cloudy Bay ) as winemaker this is a great buy. 17.5/20 from Raymond Chan writing "This has a softly concentrated nose with well packed stonefruit, citrus fruit and mealy aromas melded harmoniously with complexing flint and mineral elements, nuts and a creamy barrel-ferment note. Medium-full bodied, the palate features a firm and dense core of stonefruits, citrus fruits and mealy elements, layered with flint, mineral and oaky detail. The mouthfeel has weight and vinosity, the palate flowing along a smooth, near creamy line. A fine phenolic thread and lacy acidity balances the fruit and barrel-ferment richness, and the wine carries to a slender, lingering dry finish with citrus nuances. This is a well-concentrated, weighty Chardonnay with nutty and citrus flavours, and a creamy, fine-textured line. Match with seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 4-5 years. Hand-picked fruit from 12 y.o. vines, barrel-fermented, 60% by indigenous yeasts to13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 10% new French oak barriques, undergoing batonnage. 127 dozen made. 17.5+/20 May 2015 RRP $28.50." A GOOD BUY

2013 Ridge Monte Bello Chardonnay

$99.99

2013 Riverby Cicada Marlborough Gewurztraminer

A superb buy for a quality gewtz. from a producer that always over delivers. 95/100 from Bob Campbell in Gourment Traveller Magazine writing " Made by Riverby using grower grapes. A lush, medium- dry style with pronounced varietal rose petal, potpourri, anise and cinnamon flavours. It is a lovely wine showing good concentration and balance."

$19.99

2013 Millton Clos St Anne ‘La Bas’ Chenin Blanc

“From a section of the vineyard 'down there' ( La Bas ), the 2013 vintage was grown in Millton's Clos de Ste Anne hillside vineyard at Manutuke, in Gisborne. 19/20 from Raymond Chan " 19/20 from Raymond Chan writing-" The nose is very elegant, tightly bound and refined in expression, with restrained aromas of white and yellow florals and stonefruits, along with nuances of pineapple, unveiling waxy mineral, wet stone and nutty detail. The aromatics grow in presence and depth with aeration. Bone-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the intensity and depth of fruit confers an elegance of proportion. Tightly concentrated flavours of white and yellow stonefruits are subtly lifted by floral and honeysuckle notes and mineral suggestions. The palate features a fine-grained phenolic core of fruit extract, enlivened and driven by bright, lacy acidity. Some alcoholic power underlines the fruit which carries to a richly detailed, long lingering, dry finish. This is a fresh, elegantly concentrated, powerfully driven dry Chenin Blanc with stonefruit and mineral flavours. Serve with seafood and white meat dishes over the next 10 years. Indigenous yeast fermented aged 9 months in seasoned 600 L demi-muids on lees, without batonnage or MLF. 19.0/20.
