2013 Neudorf Moutere Chardonnay

Absolutely stunning NZ Chardonnay- Definitely one for every serious cellar - this with be one of the most sought after NZ Chardonnays in years to come. Bob Campbell rated this 98/100 writing 'This is one of the most impressive examples of the country's leading Chardonnay labels that i have yet tasted. It's a complex medley of flavours including fresh hay, wild flowers, stone fruit, fresh baked bread and bran biscuit. It's a power- packed wine with a seductively smooth texture. Guaranteed to age brilliantly as its many predecessors clearly indicate." Also 19.5/20 from Raymond Chan writing "Hand-picked Mendoza clone fruit from the Neudorf ‘Home’ and ‘Hill’ blocks on Moutere clay gravel soils, WBP and barrel-fermented with high solids by indigenous yeasts to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new French oak, the wine undergoing batonnage and 100% MLF. The wine was given a further 4 months on fine lees in tank. Full, even straw-yellow colour with pale gold hues. This has a full, deep, fresh and vibrantly fruited nose with elegantly concentrated aromas of rich and ripe yellow stonefruits infused with citrus fruits, nuts, mealy and biscuity elements, and delicate floral-lifted flinty nuances. Medium-full bodied, beautifully detailed and subtle layers of ripe citrus and yellow stonefruits are melded with flinty, nutty, and mealy notes. Layers of interest unfold and build to a crescendo of flavours. The mouthfeel has excellent acidity, freshness, sweetness and liveliness, the palate flowing with poise and tension. Refined in texture, the concentration and line lead the wine to a very long, sustained finish with an array of complex flavour nuances. This is a beautifully vibrant and poised Chardonnay with a full array of complex flavours. Serve with seafood, white meat dishes over the next 5-6+ years. 661 cases made. 19.5/20.


2011 Bouchard Meursault 1er Cru 'Perrieres'

" Pale bright yellow. Perfumed aromas of lemon peel and acacia flower. Chewy, saline and savory, with harmonious acidity (4.1 grams per liter) and underlying minerality accentuating the flavors of lemon, lime and truffle. With its strong mineral component and inner-mouth aromatic character, this almost tastes like it's from another vintage."91-93 Tanzer "The wood treatment is all but invisible and easily allows the ultra-pure and elegant nose of mineral reduction, green apple, white flowers and citrus aromas to shine. There is a terrific sense of underlying tension with laser-like focus to the medium-bodied and intensely mineral-driven flavors"92 Burghound


2013 Guigal Cotes du Rhone Blanc

Normally $25. This was a huge hit last time we had a deal on it as its so drinkable. 90/100 from Parker who writes "A great vintage for whites, the 2013 Cotes du Rhone Blanc (mostly Viognier) has outstanding notes of white peach and tangerine to go with an elegant, seamless style on the palate. It’s a smoking value to drink over the coming 1-2 years.


2012 Riverby Eliza Riesling

The only riesling to win a Gold Medal at all three of the top NZ Wine Shows and 93/100 by Bob Campell- a remarkable achievement to have such consistent outstanding results. "Moderately sweet Riesling with good intensity and purity. Mineral, citrus/lime and floral characters with a lovely interplay between sweetness and taut acidity. Delicious wine that promises to get even more interesting with bottle age." Bob Campbell


2013 Te Mata Elston Chardonnay

Normally $38. Last of the 2013 and the 2014 will have a price increase so grab this great vintage. This has to be the best Elston we have ever tried- its sure to age beutifully. Grown at Te Mata's oldest vineyard on the hillside above the winery. 19/20 from Raymond Chan and 94/100 from Wine Orbit Magazine writing "As always, this is restrained and elegant; showing delicate aromas of white stone fruit, ripe citrus, vanilla and oatmeal, which lead to a lovely expansive palate that is finely textured and brilliantly structured by juicy acidity. Impressive poise and harmony, and promising much more to come with bottle age. At its best: 2016 to 2025."


2013 Marc Bredif Vouvray

RRP is $33. Owned by the Baron de Ladoucette, their Chenin Blanc's are made in a state-of-the art winery within the landmark Château du Nozet and are considered to be some of the finest examples of their type. Grown on the lower slopes along the Loire Valley in Vouvray and Vernou-sur-Brenne, the grapes for the Marc Brédif Vouvray enjoy Northern/Southern exposure. The vineyards have soils of mainly chalk clay, with some parcels having flint clay soils. The vineyards are 25-30 years old on average. "The wine is a brilliant pale gold. On the nose, there is a fine bouquet full aromas of white flowers and yellow fruit such as pears. One finds citrus notes such as grapefruit. The attack is gentle with a lovely vivacity where one finds agreeable notes of grapefruit on the lingering finish. It is a lovely wine, ripe and refreshing."


2014 Craggy Range Te Muna Martinborough Pinot Gris

This is the first time we have been able to offer a Craggy Range Gris and it is limited. "Multiple French clones of Pinot Gris from Te Muna Road Vineyard are hand harvested together for freshness of flavour and carefully pressed to extract the purest juice and lovely spicy notes from this fragrant cultivar’s skins. Slow but warm fermentations then create a lovely round palate feel to counter the vibrancy of fruit which is a hallmark of our Te Muna Road Vineyard. The result is a refreshing wine which exhibits fragrant spices, fruit purity and luscious texture."


2012 Jadot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot

"The 2012 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot -Clos de la Chapelle- comes from the 2-hectare monopole that produced around 24 barrels. It has a lovely, sensual nose with apricots and cream emerging from the glass accompanied by hints of almond. The palate is well-balanced with a clean, fresh sprightly opening: citrus lemon, orange zest and apricot that feel harmonious and beautifully focused. This is a tender, intellectual Chassagne." 91-93 Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


2012 Jadot Santenay Clos de Malte

A superb chardonnay from Burgundy. "The 2012 Santenay Clos de Malte (white) comes from Jadot’s two-hectare parcel that is high in altitude, unlike many of the other whites in the village that tend to be on the plain. Lucid straw in color, the nose is tight but attractive, gradually opening in the glass to reveal beeswax and honeysuckle notes. The palate is lively and quite fat on the entry, enveloping the mouth with its tropical notes allied with lovely citrus lemon and lime zest to maintain tautness and freshness. This comes highly recommended." 88-90/100 Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
