2013 Mission Estate Vineyard Selection Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

Normal RRP is $21 - a superb price now after we brought a volume of this wine. We try a lot of chardonnay that we want to sell at $15 and most are dreadful but this one hit the flavour requirement. For Vineyard Selection, they take only the “free run” juice and whole bunch pressed juice from hand harvested fruit. This was then barrel fermented in French oak, with 30% new barrels, and aged on lees 12 months. "The colour is pale straw and the nose has complex peach, marzipan and stone fruit aromas with some toasty notes. On the palate, spice and stonefruit flavours come through on the creamy finish. The efforts they put into lees stirring show through in a rich, soft and silky mouth-feel." Brilliant buying.


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


2012 Blackenbrook Nelson Riesling


1997 Marc Bredif Grand Annee 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.


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 Elephant Hill Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

Always a crowd pleaser. Hand picked from sustainably run vineyards. Whole bunch pressed to 228L Burgundian oak, 25 % new. This concentrated and complex single vineyard Chardonnay shows all the hallmarks of the exceptional 2013 vintage – fantastic texture, comp lexity and length with wonderful ripe citrus fruit characters and subtle hazelnuts. A wine that is balanced and focused and a great reflection of their Te Awanga Vineyard.


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 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 Talmard Macon Uchizy

A producer that puts all their effort into making only one wine that is incredibly good value- Macon ( chardonnay ) from Southern Burgundy. To get good white burgundy at $23 is not easy so this is a great way to experience the delights without breaking the bank. This wine comes from an excellent domaine based at Uchizy in the northern Maconnais, less than an hour's drive south of the world-famous villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault. Paul Talmard is from a farming family and cultivates 200 hectares of cereals. The first vines were planted in 1958 and the grapes used to be delivered to the local co-operative at Chardonnay. He felt he could produce better wines himself, so in 1973 took the brave decision to go it alone. The wines have met with great success and the vineyard has now increased to 16 hectares.


2014 Riverby Estate Gruner Veltliner

"This is expressive, flavoursome and very attractive. A delightfully drinkable grüner showing apricot, lemon peel, floral and subtle white pepper notes on the nose. The palate is beautifully weighted and richly textured, and finishes long and pleasingly dry. A mouth-filling wine offering abundance of character and appeal. At its best: now to 2020." 93/100 Wine Orbit
