White Wine

2013 Dampt Chablis

"Sébastian Dampt is the son of Daniel and the wines are made in the same facilities and with the same philosophies. As the scores and comments suggest, these are terrific wines and at the prices the Dampt wines generally sell for, they are screaming bargains. "Dampt make four excellent Premier Cru Chablis as well as a Petit Chablis but it’s hard to beat their basic Chablis label for sheer good value. Made from densely planted (5,500 vines/ha) 30 year-old vines. Grapes are fermented in stainless steel with full malolactic fermentation and given plenty of lees contact. The result is a classic Chablis style with crunchy green apple and chalky mineral flavours. Best of all the wine is sealed with a screwcap for consistency and added longevity." Bob Campbell "This too is exceptionally fresh with its expressive and slightly riper nose of dried yellow orchard fruit, ocean breeze and algae. There is both fine volume and richness to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a bit more depth" 89/100 Burghound


2013 Bouchard Macon- Lugny Saint-Pierre ( Chardonnay )

Now a stunning price for a white burgundy ( chardonnay ) because we bought a volume of this wine. Bouchard Pere & Fils is one of burgundys top Producers which is crucial when buying value burgundy. The Macon is the generic appellation for red, white and rose wines from the Maconnais sub-region of southern Burgundy. A number of communes within the appellation's area have been recognized as sources of higher-quality wines and may append their names to 'Macon' on their labels. The best-known of these is probably Macon Lugny. While all of these communes may use their names on white wine labels, only two-thirds of them produce red and rose wines of sufficient quality to earn this privilege. "Beautifully fresh and vibrant with barely of sniff of oak this wine has that lovely minerally thread running through it with notes of apple and lemon/ lime on the nose. Classic white bugundy that is only slightly fatter than Chablis.


2014 Villa Maria Wairau Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc


2013 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! "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 Framingham Classic Marlborough Riesling

Wonderful top shelf riesling from a winemaker who has consistently produced some of NZ's best rieslings over a long time period. Normal RRP $25. Double Gold Medal with 97/100 and Best Riesling and Best in Show White at the San Francisco International Wine Competition 2015, Gold Medal Easter Show Wine Awards 2015. 5 Stars Raymond Chan, 5 Stars Cameron Douglas and 94/100 from Bob Campbell writing "Full-flavoured Riesling with lime/citrus, orange blossom, apricot, mineral and delicate nut and toast flavours. Subtle sweetness is balanced by deliciously fruity acidity to give the wine an exquisite tension and energy. Tasted alongside the 2012 vintage, I marginally preferred this wine.”


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


2014 Eradus Awatere Valley Pinot Gris


2013 Astrolabe Wrekin Vineyard Chenin Blanc

Astrolabe's second chenin blanc release. If you like vouvray then have a crack at this. "The Wrekin Vineyard Chenin Blanc reveals ripe apple, warm pear and allspice notes with nuances of honeyed peach and jasmine. Medium-bodied, it drinks very crisp and dry, with good fruit concentration and a silky texture that persists through the long, layered finish. This impressive Chenin Blanc should cellar to 2015+."
