White Wine

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 Stanly Estate Marlborough Chardonnay

Normal RRP $28. 17.5/20 from Raymond Chan writing "This has a softly concentrated nose with well packed stonefruit, citrus fruit and mealy aromas melded harmoniously with complexing flint and mineral elements, nuts and a creamy barrel-ferment note. Medium-full bodied, the palate features a firm and dense core of stonefruits, citrus fruits and mealy elements, layered with flint, mineral and oaky detail. The mouthfeel has weight and vinosity, the palate flowing along a smooth, near creamy line. A fine phenolic thread and lacy acidity balances the fruit and barrel-ferment richness, and the wine carries to a slender, lingering dry finish with citrus nuances. This is a well-concentrated, weighty Chardonnay with nutty and citrus flavours, and a creamy, fine-textured line. Match with seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 4-5 years. Hand-picked fruit from 12 y.o. vines, barrel-fermented, 60% by indigenous yeasts to13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 10% new French oak barriques, undergoing batonnage. 127 dozen made. 17.5+/20 May 2015 RRP $28.50." A GREAT BUY


2014 Elephant Hill Viognier


2012 Man O War Waiheke Island Chardonnay

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 Nisia Old Vine Verdejo

A killer project from Jorge Ordonez in the Rueda area where this 100% old vine Verdejo is made. This 5000 case cuvee was fermented in stainless steel and large format French oak, and aged sur lie prior to bottling. Coming from sandy soils and ungrafted vines (some of which are 120+ years of age). "Jorge Ordoñez has a small winery in Rueda with just over 38 acres of organically farmed vines. From vines situated at 2,850 feet above sea level. The wine offers up crisp, elegant, white peach and citrus notes intermixed with loamy, sandy soil undertones, zesty acidity and a naked mouthfeel. Drink this beauty over the next several years." Parker


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


2013 Boneline Waipara Hell Block Riesling

10% and medium- dry in style. “Loving the new 2013 The Boneline Hellblock Riesling which comes from vines grown on a river terrace that is, apparently, as hot as hell during summer, which must be why it tastes so intense on the old Riesling citrusy flavour front. That delish’ bite of crisp acidity is what really drives my tastebuds wild, and creates a nervy core of interest in each sip of this lovely new wine from North Canterbury. The wine is made from grapes grown on 25 year old vines grown downstream from the White Gorge, which is carved out of terraces on the south bank of the Waipara River. Its makers, Tutton, Sienko and Hill, all say that they picked the grapes prior to sunburn to avoid phenolic development; for non-wine heads, that is another way of saying that they have avoided over ripeness, which can (in Riesling) lead to some strong aromas that can polarise people just a tad. This wine is driven by an intense lemon taste and really is a very fresh, youthful, yet-to-develop style that has great flavour intensity and a long life ahead” The Boneline is a new brand from some well experienced North Canterbury winemakers on Ram Paddock Road, North Canterbury, New Zealand. Another wine that shows what this region is capable of: in a word: greatness." Joelle Thomson


2014 Partners Margaret River Chardonnay

100% Chardonnay from Margaret River. One of those brillant Western Australian pure Chardonnays that we search for. "Brilliant pale straw. Lifted aromas of stone fruit, citrus blossom and raw cashew. The palate is focused and fleshy featuring stone fruits and citrus with subtle toasty oak flavours. There is flinty, nutty undertones supported by firm, fresh acidity."
