White Wine

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."


2013 Mission Estate Hutchet Chardonnay

The year was 1983, it was the year that Kiwi won the Melbourne Cup, Prince William made his first visit to New Zealand, Lorraine Downes was crowned Miss Universe, Lance Cairns hit his six sixes at the MCG and Microsoft first launched Word. It was also the year that Mission Estate winemaker, Paul Mooney, made New Zealand’s first handpicked, whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented Chardonnay. These traditional French techniques have since gone on to become industry best practice for producing premium New Zealand Chardonnay. To mark its 30th consecutive vintage of producing barrel fermented Chardonnay, Mission Estate are set to release a limited edition Chardonnay under its prestigious Huchet label. The wine has been painstakingly crafted from the sublime 2013 vintage and is sure to be keenly sought out by Chardonnay connoisseurs from around the world. Paul Mooney is now one of New Zealand’s most experienced and respected winemakers and remains at Mission Estate, where he now presides over a much larger winemaking operation. Despite the obvious advancements in technology since the early eighties, he still prefers the traditional approach for Chardonnay. Paul says: “We rely heavily on hand harvesting and whole bunch pressing for our barrel fermented Chardonnays. We believe these traditional French techniques produce wines that over deliver in all the key sensory attributes.” Every bottle of Mission’s limited edition 30th anniversary Huchet Chardonnay will be individually numbered and boxed.


2012 Tahbilk Victoria Viognier

End of line clearance- normally $24. Tahbilk is one of Australia’s oldest wineries, owned by the Purbrick family inl Victorian wine region of Nagambie Lakes. “Ripe stone fruits with a dash of citrus are a seductive start to this little ripper. Lively flavours in the mouth with terrific acidity with crisp and moreish textures confirm this is a very smart wine. It’s ripe fruited yet very fresh and satisfying.” – Tony Love – Adelaide Advertiser


2014 Boneline Waipara Sauvignon Blanc

One of the best 2014 sauvignon's we have tried. Grown alongside the Riesling vines in Hellblock, sharing the searing summer heat and cold Autumn nights. This is a very lively block with spring fed gravels allowing vine roots to express their unfettered character. Handpicked, destemmed, and given extended skin contact. Clear juice cool fermented in tank with selected yeast strains in order to extract its riotous nature. Riper fruit left on lees for the Winter which adds nuances of yoghurt, linseed and fruit. Faithful punchy passionfruit, nettle, gooseberry and boxtree sit on top of richer tropical & citrus fruit notes. Palate dry and balanced — classic savvy. Mid palate has lovely surge of flavour. Profound depth that can only come from old vines on a great site.


2013 Astrolabe Sleepers Vineyard Albarino


2013 Domaine Janasse Cotes du Rhone Blanc

The crisp, dry 2013 Cotes du Rhone Blanc (50% Grenache Blanc and the rest Clairette, Bourboulenc and Viognier) exhibits a sumptuous perfume, wonderful purity and lots of personality. “What this family operation has achieved over the last decade is nothing short of remarkable considering the breadth of wines made, from their Vin de Pays, which are among the finest made in France, to their world-class Cotes du Rhones and Chateauneuf du Papes…This impeccably run estate, in the capable hands of Christophe Sabon, his sister Isabelle, and their father, is one of the superstars of the southern Rhone Valley. Over the last 12-15 years, the quality of the wines has gone from strength to strength, with brilliant wines being produced in all price categories" R.Parker


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.


2010 Vidal Legacy Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

Elite Gold Air NZ Wine Awards, Gold NZIWS, Gold Royal Easter Show, 5 Stars top 10 Cuisine Chardonnay Tasting, 5 Stars M.Cooper, 5 Stars Winestate Magazine. "(This new flagship Chardonnay has replaced the former Reserve label.) The debut 2010 vintage (5*) is a beautifully poised, youthful wine, hand-picked at four sites (two in the Gimblett Gravels, Maraekakaho and the Ohiti Valley), fermented mostly with indigenous yeasts, and lees-aged for a year in French oak barriques. The bouquet is smoky, with a hint of gunflint; the palate is mouthfilling, refined and tight-knit, with peachy, slightly nutty flavours, showing lovely delicacy and richness. It's a thought-provoking wine with great cellaring potential; open 2014+."


2013 Domaine du Bagnol Cassis Blanc

A great new wine from a new producer for us. Domaine du Bagnol is a tiny producer with vineyards situated beneath a dramatic limestone outcrop on the hill above the sun-soaked village of Cassis in Southern France, just 200 metres from the Mediterranean. This is a beautiful dry and juicy white with fresh white fruit flavours. A perfect match with seafood dishes. Marsanne (51%) is the dominant grape variety complemented by Clairette Blanc (31%) and some Ugni Blanc (18%). The vineyards to produce the white wine at Bagnol cover a bit less than 9 hectares and are planted on a gentle slope of clay and limestone soil with a north – northwest exposure. After a manual harvest, the grapes are destemmed and pressed; the fermentation continues for three weeks in cement cuves at a temperature controlled 18 degrees Celsius; the wine is vinified completely dry.


2013 Elephant Hill Hawkes Bay Reserve Chardonnay

5 stars Winestate Magazine, 5 stars (95/100) Sam Kim’s Wine Orbit and 5 stars (19/20) Raymond Chan writing " The second release of a ‘Reserve’ Chardonnay, the fruit from the ‘Te Awanga’ estate vineyard from vines planted in 2003. 84% clone 15 and 16% clone 95, hand-picked and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 30% new oak with MLF and batonnage, the wine aged a further 5 months on lees in tank. Brilliant straw-yellow colour with pale lemon-gold hues. This has a full and powerfully packed nose with deep layers of complex gunflint sulphide reduction intermixed with white stonefruits and minerals, showing some nutty and toast detail in support. The aromatics are direct and show with great clarity and depth. Medium-full bodied, mouthfilling flavours of gunflint and minerals unfold an array of detail with white stonefruits, nuts, oak and toast. The fruit is rich and has a subtle barrel-ferment creaminess and unctuousness, along with plenty of power and drive at the core. Rounded, ripe acidity adds to the presence and liveliness, and the wine carries to a succulent, concentrated and lingering finish of flint, stonefruits and minerals. This is a full, rich, concentrated Chardonnay with complex gunflint, stonefruit and minerally flavours. Match with most white meat dishes over the next 4-5+ years. 19.0-/20 Jul 2015 RRP $45.00.
