White Wine

2014 Coopers Creek 'The Limeworks' Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

Normally this retails elsewhere at $22 from the sensational 2014 vintage. Always a favourite and so well priced. The 'Limeworks' vineyard is strewn with limestone and in fact sits next to a limeworks ( hence the name for this wine )."Rich grapefruit and nectarine -like flavours, well seasoned with toasty American and French oak and a creamy soft texture." Brillant, brilliant chardonnay buying.


2014 des Aubuisieres Vouvray Silex

We were only given a very small allocation of this stunning vouvray this year so enjoy it while it lasts. "For some time now, Berhard Fouquet has been moving the quality of his distinctive, largely stainless steel-rendered Vouvrays into the exalted echelon of Foreau and Huet, which is to say challenging any of the world's finest practitioners of white wine, and at an absolutely unbeatable price:quality ratio. The 2012 has lychee, yellow cherry, Mirabelle, quince, and narcissus on the nose leading to a musky, subtly oily, chalk-inflected, honeyed, yet incisively zesty palate. This combines richness and palpably high extract with cut and invigoration in a way that only Chenin ( and then only in the Central Loire ) can. Its 6 grams of residual sugar perfectly set off the yellow fruits and hint of honey in this wine's long finish. This formidably-concentrated yet elegant wine is worth following for at least half a dozen years." Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.


2013 Dr Loosen Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett

Blazing red and insanely steep, the Ürziger Würzgarten (ERTS-ih-ger VERTS-gar-ten) vineyard in Germanys famous Mosel region, fills the picturesque amphitheater formed by this dramatic bend in the river. Although it’s directly adjacent to the vineyards of Erden, it produces a completely different kind of wine, with exotic, spicy aromas and a mesmerizing earthiness. No other vineyard on the Mosel produces wines so bursting with tropical fruit flavors. The estate’s oldest vines are found here. "So, so restrained - but intriguing fruit purity. The sugar is virtually hidden by the acid. It's a bit like the best optical illusions, it's better to enjoy the spectacle rather than figure out how it's done! " Jancis Robinson


2012 Highfield Marlborough Chardonnay

Normally $33. . Limited production, defined styles and rigorous de-classification ensures the making of consistently high quality wines. "Typically a classy wine. The 2012 (4*), barrel-fermented and lees-aged, is full-bodied, with strong grapefruit and peach flavours, slightly limey and buttery, and savoury, nutty notes adding complexity. Drink mid-2014+." M.Cooper


2014 Forrest Estate "The Doctors' Riesling

Trophy for Champion Riesling at the Air NZ Wine Awards. Low-alcohol style (9.0 per cent) is like biting into a fresh Granny Smith apple. Reminiscent of a Mosel, with fresh, tight lemon/lime flavours, showing good intensity and vivacity, and a medium-sweet, appetisingly crisp finish. Drink now or cellar.


2014 Villa Maria Wairau Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc


2012 Astrolabe Taihoa Sauvignon Blanc

This is Simon Waghorns proud little baby. Only a tiny amount of this barrel- fermented sauvignon was made. If you like Cloudy Bay Te Koko then this will blow your lights out and its a lot better value! 96/100 from Bob Campbell in Gourmet Traveller Magazine writing "Astrolabe's flagship sauvignon blanc is from a coastal vineyard around one hour drive south of Blenheim, about halfway between Blenheim and Kaikoura. The deliberately low- cropped vineyard is planted on free- draining, stony, silty loam with some fragmented limestone. Weighty, full-bodied wine with chalky mineral, green capsicum, gooseberry, passionfruit and lime flavours. Intense and complex wine that gives a nod in the direction of Sancerre.


2013 Vidal Hawkes Bay Legacy Chardonnay

Trophy for Champion Wine of the Show and Trophy for Champion Chadonnay at the Air NZ Wine Awards. A micro selection from 21 barrels. "“The Champion Wine of the Show is a very good example of the new wave of Chardonnay style we are seeing in New Zealand, but still borrows from the great white Burgundy tradition,” Mr Brajkovich ( Chairman of Judges ) said. “It has vibrant peach and nectarine fruit aromas seamlessly integrated with smoky toasted oak.”


2013 Dampt Chablis Premier Cru Lechet

Brilliant buying for premier cru chablis when you compare the quality to other top premier cru labels which sell at $60-$70. The premier cru vineyard of Lechet is located just to the south-west of Chablis town, within the commune of Milly. It is located on south- and south-east-facing slopes just below the Bois de Lechet woodland, overlooking Milly village." A penetrating and perfumed nose displays scents of citrus and mineral reduction that is very much in keeping with the citrusy and well-delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess good richness but also fine verve on the slightly austere, mineral-inflected and persistent finish. This is presently very dry though I suspect that it will become less so with a few years of bottle age. This too is worth considering."91/100 Burghound


2010 Catena Zapata White Bones Chardonnay

"Full yellow with gold highlights. Utterly distinctive aromas of orange zest, brown spices and crushed rock are lifted by ineffable, almost riesling-like high notes of spearmint and citrus peel. Began musky and reduced but opened slowly with air to show a chewy, tactile texture to the fascinating, powerfully mineral flavors of citrus peel, mint, nutmeg and earth. A great expression of terroir, this superb, extremely long chardonnay's thickness and saline character is leavened by vibrant, dusty minerality. This was even more perfumed and captivating when I drained the bottle three nights later. One of the most compelling and singular chardonnays I've tasted from outside Burgundy in the last year."95+ Tanzer
