White Wine

des Aubuisieres Vouvray Mousseux Methode Traditionelle

A beautiful bone dry bubbly from the Loire made with chenin blanc grapes. "The current Aubousieres non-vintage Vouvray Brut Methode Traditionelle tweaks the nose with lemon oil, salt spray, and pungent flowers. Chalky, saline and alkaline on the palate, and with moderately fine mousse, it clings impressively with subtly oily honey and bitter-sweet citrus oil. The wine has intensity, minerality and distinct Vouvray personality. " Wine Advocate Robert Parker "The new release of the sparkling Vouvray from Domaine des Aubuisieres is outstanding and offers up very good value. Chenin blanc is most impressive for how it can deliver such a wide range of outstanding wines, from bone-dry sparkler all the way up to luscious, honeyed dessert wines, and sparkling Vouvray from a master such as Bernard Fouquet is a more than worthy substitute to Champagne. "Martin Gillman View from the Cellar


2013 Cloudy Bay Marlborough Pinot Gris


2012 Blackenbrook Nelson Riesling


1996 Marc Bredif Vouvray

Aged 18 years before release this is actually superb value when you think of the cost for a wine company on aging stock this long. Marc Brédif was established in the 1890s but the Domaine can boast a history which dates back to 1550. Ancient troglodyte cellars, which contain local wines over a hundred years of age, were carved into the underlying chalk during the tenth century, among the finest and most extensive Chais in Valley Loire. Marc Brédif make the finest and most ageworthy Vouvray Chenin Blanc, wines which drink magnificently on release. "Golden straw hue. Nose of green apples and stonefruit, honeyed citrus, acacia florals, hawthorn and fig. Generously layered palate, valencia orange and ripe apple, pine nuts and fragrant orange blossom notes before a complex, long and lingering finish of honeyed citrus and pear."


2008 Vinoptima Ormand Reserve Gewurztraminer

Normally $100! A huge clearance deal to make way for the new release. Having steered his family company to one of New Zealand's successful producers, Nick Nobilo could have enjoyed a peaceful retirement after the company was sold to BRL Hardy. But instead he has dedicated his life to producing New Zealand's finest Gewurztraminer from his 9.7-hectare estate in Gisborne, split into two blocks, the first planted in 2000 and the second in 2007 using budwood that Nick had been propagating for over 25 years. The winery is so clean you could eat your breakfast off it 96/100 from Bob Campbell in Gourmet Traveller Magazine and 5 Stars M.Cooper who writes "This wine, launched from 2003, is from Nick Nobilo's vineyard at Ormond, in Gisborne, devoted exclusively to the variety, and is fermented in tanks and large 1200-litre German oak ovals. The 2008 vintage (5*), released in 2013, has been dubbed 'Elegant Rose', due to its 'pungent rose petal scents'. Harvested at 24.5 brix, it is pale yellow, with substantial body (14 per cent alcohol) and highly concentrated peach, ginger and spice flavours, slightly honeyed, deliciously soft and rich. A lush medium style (18 grams/litre of residual sugar), it is still very lively but shows some bottle-aged maturity; drink now to 2016."A true steal for the best.


2014 des Aubuisieres Vouvray Les Girardieres Demi Sec

An abolsutely stunning off dry style of chenin. "Candied citrus notes of lime, grapefruit, and blood orange rinds memorably scent this wine then go on to inform a nut oil- and honey-infused, bitter sweetly zesty palate subtly oily in texture. This finishes with fruit pip and citrus rind bitterness, as well as alkaline and savory, saline minerality. This should age well for at least half a dozen years." Magnificant


2012 Cape Mentelle Margaret River Chardonnay

95/100 from Halliday and listed at $41AUD. He writes "Pale straw-green; grapefruit/citrus fruit is the outer layer of the wine; inside are white peach/stone fruit flavours, and largely inside these two layers is the oak and some nutty touches associated with that oak. Since all the layers are translucent, the net result is a fruit-driven chardonnay of considerable elegance." Also 94/100 from Ray Jordan


2014 Dry River Martinborough Gewurztraminer

98/100 from Bob Campell "This is a truly gorgeous Gewurztraminer with wonderful concentration and peacocks tail-like display of subtle flavours on its incredibly lengthy finish. Its a heady mix of floral, spice and exotic fruit characters which promises to get even more exciting with bottle age. This wine supports my long-held belief Gewurztraminer is Dry Rivers most outstanding wine."


2013 Fritz Haag Brauneberger Kabinett

Another name famous as one of the world's best Riesling producers. Brauneberg is one of the truely great vineyard sites in the Mosel. Ideal for summer with a low 7.5% alcohol. "Herbal note dominates the nose at first. But the palate is rich in ripe citrus fruit. Mouthwatering, dry first impression and then with sweetness rounding out the citrus tang. Persistent and full fruited for the vintage" Jancis Robinson


2013 Amisfield Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc
