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

( Wine due end of May- book now ) 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 Coroa Godello

A stunniing dry, minerally white from Northern Spain where it is the classic match with seafood. Brilliant drinking for the summer, and at this price its now well worth trying this godello grape variety thats taking the New York Wine Bar scene by storm. Angel Lopez and his family founded A Coroa in 2002. He built his winery incorporating Roman ruins already on the site. A former nursery owner, he helped cultivate and supply most of the vineyards in this region to the Godello and Mencia vines, which until ten years ago had been abandoned for more "famous" grape varieties. They farm a total of ten hectares over several vineyards. The wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged on the lees for six months. "Green-tinged yellow. Lemon zest, green apple, white flowers and fennel on the mineral-accented nose. Dry and incisive, offering intense citrus fruit and honeysuckle flavors and a subtle herbal quality. Dry and precise on the minerally finish" 91/100 S.Tanzer


2013 Amisfield Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc


2013 Man O War Valhalla Waiheke Island Chardonnay

Rated as Waiheke’s finest vintage to date, the 2013 vintage delivered fruit of exceptional quality. Hand harvested and either gently foot stomped before pressing or whole bunch pressed directly to barrel for an un-inoculated ‘wild’ fermentation in 500 litre acacia or oak puncheons. "The 2013 Valhalla Chardonnay is typical of their style; bold flavours and aromas with complex savoury notes introducing tropical fruits, stone fruit, and hazelnut with toasty/smokey barrel characters. The palate is all about elegance and discreet power with a rich texture framed by vibrant acidity, oak and bold fruit."


2012 Stanley Estates Awatere Valley Pinot Gris

Made by the ex winemaker at Cloudy Bay. Gold Medal at the Air NZ Wine Awards. "Weighty wine with a smooth texture and a drying finish thanks to acidity rather than tannins. Attractive Naschi pear and herb flavours with plenty of nutty lees characters." ( 20% Barrel fermented with wild yeasts to give palate weight and complexity. ) Set up seven years ago this is their third release under their own label. They currently own 18 ha of land with 2 ha dedicated to the Spanish grape variety Albarino. Excellent top flight pinot gris


2010 Bouchard Corton Charlemagne

" green fruit, white flower, stone and green apple aromas. The textured, intense and admirably pure flavors reflect perfectly the intense minerality of the appellation while finishing with a balanced, persistent, powerful and bone dry finale. As young Corton-Charlemagne can often be, this evidences a borderline chewy quality as there is so much extract. While I would expect this to arrive at its apogee at around 10 years of age, this is built to last for several decades. Once again, if you're tempted to try this young, do decant it for 30 to 60 minutes first" 94/100 Burghound “Highly nuanced nose combines apple, fl ower blossom, crushed stone, white truffl e and menthol, with a saline seashell quality emerging with air.. Broad and large-scaled but without any impression of weight. An infant today: this is likely to be bottled last, according to Prost.” 92/100 - Stephen Tanzer “Very embryonic. He recommends this with salty cheese such as Beaufort or Comté. The best vintage they have in their cellars is 1958! There is indeed some saltiness in this wine. Racy. Very good Corton- Charlemagne. Racy and dense and juicy. Lots of energy here. Much livelier than many Cortoncharlemagnes. Impressive! Still chewy but with real energy.” 18/20 - Jancis Robinson
