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

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.

2014 Okiwa Marlborugh Sauvignon Blanc

Made by the superb Highfield Winery and overdelivers for the money. Aromas of ripley scented stonefruit, guava and gooseberry and hints of soft herbs and passionfruit. The palate is fruit-driven and textural bursting with fresh pineapple grapefruit and gooseberry flavours. A long and refreshing wine with good complexity and a soft citrus finish. Wonderful with seafood. Well done Highfield.

$15.99

2014 Cloudy Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is a definitive expression of the region and its season. Appealing concentration and poise suggests a wine with the ability to age. The nose is bright with aromas of kaffir lime and grapefruit. A generous palate reveals ripe citrus, stone fruit and lemongrass flavours balanced by crunchy acidity. Perhaps the hallmark of this vintage is its persistent finish rich with minerality.

$32.99

2013 Riverby Cicada Marlborough Gewurztraminer

A superb buy for a quality gewtz. from a producer that always over delivers. 95/100 from Bob Campbell in Gourment Traveller Magazine writing " Made by Riverby using grower grapes. A lush, medium- dry style with pronounced varietal rose petal, potpourri, anise and cinnamon flavours. It is a lovely wine showing good concentration and balance."

$19.99

2013 Millton Clos St Anne ‘La Bas’ Chenin Blanc

“From a section of the vineyard 'down there' ( La Bas ), the 2013 vintage was grown in Millton's Clos de Ste Anne hillside vineyard at Manutuke, in Gisborne. 19/20 from Raymond Chan " 19/20 from Raymond Chan writing-" The nose is very elegant, tightly bound and refined in expression, with restrained aromas of white and yellow florals and stonefruits, along with nuances of pineapple, unveiling waxy mineral, wet stone and nutty detail. The aromatics grow in presence and depth with aeration. Bone-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the intensity and depth of fruit confers an elegance of proportion. Tightly concentrated flavours of white and yellow stonefruits are subtly lifted by floral and honeysuckle notes and mineral suggestions. The palate features a fine-grained phenolic core of fruit extract, enlivened and driven by bright, lacy acidity. Some alcoholic power underlines the fruit which carries to a richly detailed, long lingering, dry finish. This is a fresh, elegantly concentrated, powerfully driven dry Chenin Blanc with stonefruit and mineral flavours. Serve with seafood and white meat dishes over the next 10 years. Indigenous yeast fermented aged 9 months in seasoned 600 L demi-muids on lees, without batonnage or MLF. 19.0/20.

2013 Black Barn Barrel Fermented Chardonnay

We love this bigger styled, robust chardonnay and the 2013 is a class act. Grown on the Havelock North hills, hand-picked and barrel-fermented, this is typically a classy wine, in a classic regional style. The 2013 vintage (4.5*) is weighty and rich, with concentrated, ripe stone-fruit flavours, buttery, mealy and toasty notes adding complexity, and a rounded finish." M.Cooper

$29.99

2013 Babich Irongate Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay

Elsewhere this retails at $37. Babich's flagship Chardonnay. A stylish wine, Irongate was traditionally markedly leaner and tighter than other top Hawke’s Bay Chardonnays, while performing well in the cellar, but the latest releases have more drink-young appeal. It is based on hand-picked fruit from the shingly Irongate Vineyard in Gimblett Road, fully barrel-fermented (about 20 per cent new), and lees-matured for up to 10 months. Malolactic fermentation was rare up to the 2002, but has since exerted a growing influence." M.Cooper

$29.99

2010 Bouchard Puligny Montrachet Champ Canet

One of the great Puligny vineyards next door to Meursault Perrières. "Good pale yellow. Very ripe, Meursault-like aromas of stone fruits, vanilla, acacia flower and white truflfle. Silky, concentrated and fresh, with lovely lift for its volume and fullness. The sweet stone fruit flavors carry through to a very long, rather powerful finish". 91/100 S.Tanzer
