White Wine

2013 Domaine Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc

There is only one thing wrong with this superlative blend of 40% Grenache Blanc, 40% Clairette and 20% Roussanne, namely the paucity of its availability. Richly textured, with indulgent peachy, toasty notes, the wine has a distinctive brioche aniseed finish and a fertile seam of acidity in counterpoint to its innate generosity.


2012 Ferret Pouilly Fuisse Chardonnay

This has quickly become a staff favourite because it has a real texture and richness to it- and it offers great value for good white burgundy"I could see that precision that Audrey says is at the core of her work. These are beautiful white Burgundies: ultra fresh and delicate, yet with substance and power. Her vineyard material is superb, with an average age of 35 years but parcels of 60-year-old vines too, and the new winery allows the detail that she is seeking. Some pear-droppy ferment aromas at first, but swirling reveals a lovely nuttiness and Cox's Pippin fruit, very clean and fresh. On the palate the oak is much more dominant, a lovely juicy orange and lime citrus acidity and purity to the fruit wins out though, in a mouth-filling and structured wine, but one with finesse. Tom Cannavan


2012 Ferret Pouilly Fuisse Les Perrieres

Stunning top shelf chardonnay."From a vineyard that lies on a hillside part facing east, part south. Plenty of oak character here, plenty of butter and light toasted muffin notes, but that beautiful delicacy of light floral and mineral notes too. The palate has superb line and length, the lime of the acidity and the taut structure of the mineral and apple fruit is linear and deliciously flecked with flowers and herbs. 92/100."Tom Cavannan


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


2014 Theory & Practice Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

Finally we have a large, full throttle, lush Chardonnay that ticks all the boxes. Theory & Practice wines are made by winemaker Ant Mackenzie who started out as a vintage cellar hand for Vidal in Hawke’s Bay and progressing through the ranks to become the winemaker/ general manager at Dry River, Ant has also held senior winemaking positions at Framingham Wine Company, Spy Valley, Mud House and Te Awa. 5 Stars Raymond Chan who writes "The nose is softly full with deep and concentrated aromas of ripe yellow stonefruit and citrus fruit, unfolding mealy and biscuitty layers along with subtle and balanced toasty oak and complexing flinty lees elements. The aromatics are detailed and the nose is one of finesse. Medium-bodied and elegantly proportioned, the palate features a fine-featured, tight core of yellow stonefruits entwined with mealy and nutty flavours. The wine flows smoothly with creamy barrel-ferment richness, and the mouthfeel is enlivened by fresh acidity lending good energy. Toasty oak and nutty, gunflinty elements emerge and are carried to a fine-textured, refreshing and sustained finish. This is an elegant, finely concentrated, poised Chardonnay with complex mealy, flinty and toasty detail. Hhand-picked fruit,whole bunch pressed and barrel-fermented, partially by indigenous yeasts to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 40% new French oak, undergoing 100% Malolatic fermentation. Raymond Chan.


2014 Chinock Gisborne Pinot Gris

Very, very well priced Pinot Gris that certainly delivers. "Sourced from our their vineyards this pinot gris is fresh with lifted candied fruit aromas and pure pear notes . The balance is medium dry with delicate stone fruit flavours , leaving a clean long lasting flavour of luscious pear."


2014 Elephant Hill Viognier


2012 Man O War Waiheke Island Chardonnay

Normally $32. The vineyards that make up the 2012 Man O’ War Chardonnay are those which are predominantly high on the hill tops with a high quantity of volcanic deposits making up the top soils. Chardonnay at Man O’ War is whole bunch pressed and delivered directly to barrel (in this case old French oak) for a ‘wild’ fermentation. "On the nose there is some subtle struck match characters melding nicely with some toasty oak/lees infl uence and of course the lovely lemon curd character from the Malo. On the palate the minerality of the vineyard sites still shines through as despite its relative low acidity it is still very vibrant and elegant."


2013 Boneline Waipara Riverbone Sauvignon Blanc

“…A classy distinctive wine, hand-picked at Waipara, partly barrel-fermented and lees-aged for eight months. Pale lemon/green, it’s reminiscent of a white Bordeaux, with substantial body and concentrated, ripe, tropical fruit flavours, showing excellent complexity, harmony and length. A subtle wine, it is still youthful; drink now or cellar.” 5 Stars Michael Cooper


2013 Boneline Waipara Barebone Chardonnay

Given that Waipara has a similar climate to Chablis and they also have limestone subsoils, Boneline feel this is a valid approach to a crisp, structured Chardonnay style. Made by Jeff Sinnott ( ex Amisfield and Ostler Winemaker ) from vines first planted in 1989. This is a deliberate attempt at a pure Chardonnay made to emphasise subtle secondary varietal character, structure and texture. “…a pleasant, pure and perky unoaked Chardonnay. Expect peach and honeydew melon aromas with some creamy, lees-derived character. Fresh and zesty with an interesting chalky texture on the finish.” 17/20 Rebecca Gibb
