White Wine

2013 Shaw and Smith M3 Adelaide Hills Chardonnay

96/100 from Halliday writing "The grapes come from exceptional estate vineyards at Lenswood, Lobethal and Woodside, and the wine has always been known for its complexity, part due (although you mightn't realise this) to its use of mlf; fermentation in a cool, largely underground, cellar is another part of the explanation for the unfailing ability of the wine to deliver the goods. Drink to 2023."


2012 Clos Floridene Blanc

"For vintage 2012, the dry whites from Graves are simply irresistible. These are the go-to wines for immediate pleasure in plump, textured, honeyed wines of immense drinkability that also offer a richness above even the sweet wines of the region. Clos Floridene, a 75-acre estate planted on the calcareous plateau near Barsac, was resurrected by Bordeaux's leading winemaker and consultant Denis Dubourdieu in the early 1980s. Denis recognized the potential for outstanding wines from this property through careful geological studies – discovering the "Barsac red sands," for one – and authorized replanting and conversion to organics. Today, Denis produces the top wine – Clos Floridene – from a combination of the replanted sections and a small five-acre parcel of very old Semillon and Muscadelle vines which were planted on the original property. For 2012, he bottled his crowning achievement; a wine bursting with citrus and honeydew, layered with complexity and brimming with mouthwatering acidity. This one will excite you, and you'll love it at the table or all on its own." 91/100 Wine Spectator. "Very rich nose. So rich you are left wondering whether this a dry or a sweet wine. In fact it turns out to be a very delightful rich dry wine with fantastic tension. Just the sort I like! Smoky."17/20 Jancis Robinson. Immensely drinkable.


2014 Stanley Estates Single Vineyard Awatere Sauvignon Blanc

From this up and coming winery in the Awatere. Very quality focused with Jules Taylor at the winemaking helm.Gold Medal at the Spiegelau Wine Awards. "Brilliant, even, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. The nose is tightly bound and elegantly expressed with aromas of gooseberries entwined with passionfruit, lifted with tropical fruit and floral esters, unveiling saline and mineral nuances. Dry to taste and slender in proportion, subtly juicy and succulent flavours of passionfruit, gooseberries and minerals feature on the front palate. The mouthfeel is enlivened by fresh acidity and the wine follows a very fine-textured line leading to a dry, moderately sustained finish of passionfruit and chalky minerals. This is a tight and slender Sauvignon Blanc with subtly luscious passionfruit and mineral flavours and a fresh, lively and fine mouthfeel. Match with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Awatere Valley fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 2.1 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 17.5-/20 Feb 2015 RRP $22.95."


2011 Herzog Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 'Sur Lie'


2012 Pyramid Valley Field of Fire Chardonnay

"Based just down the road from Bell Hill in Waikari, N. Canterbury, Mike tenured at Neudorf having learnt his trade in Burgundy, then with Randall Grahm and Ernie Loosen. Having found a suitable site in 2000 situated upon steep clay-limestone soils, he exacted a high density planting (10-12,000 vines/ha) and imposed biodynamic principles from day one. This is an impressive range of artisan can only imagine what will be produced when they reach the same age as Burgundy Grand Crus, so watch this space!" Robert Parkers Wine Advocate 1.7 tonnes/acre from this tiny, south-east facing home block; eight year old vines. Slightly variable soils from top to bottom, though primarily shallow (10-15cm) glauconitic clays over well-drained limestone. Biodynamic from inception.


2013 Greystone Erin's Reserve Waipara Chardonnay

19+/20 from Raymond Chan and Bob Campbell MW 96/100 writing "Predictably classy flagship Chardonnay from a top producer. Integrated flavours make it hard to describe individual characters but I noted grapefruit, toast, hazelnut and brioche. More nuances will emerge as the wine gains bottle age. It has a very refined, almost ethereal texture and a great balance of alcohol sweetness and juicy acidity so that neither are obvious. Power delivered with subtlety. Drink 2015 to 2022. Limited availability


2014 Framingham Marlborough Chardonnay

Normally $25. Great buying from this well established winery and talented winemaker- and its that big rich style of chardonnay. 94/100 from Bob Campbell writing . "Reasonably rich and weighty Chardonnay with tree fruit/peach/nectarine and seasoning of spicy oak, bran biscuit and cashew nut. Quite mouth-filling with a smooth texture and lengthy finish. Classy, well made Chardonnay. Drink 2015-2020."


2012 Greenhough Nelson Apple Valley Riesling


2014 Ata Rangi Lismore Martinborough Pinot Gris

18+/20 from Raymond Chan writing "This is lovely with its softness and gentle volume of lifted aromatics. Exotic florals, spices, hints of musk, yet this has a good core and focus to the bouquet. Off-dry to dry, elegant with a gentle drive and underlying power. Beautifully lifted florals and perfumes, the fruit quite aromatic. The mouthfeel is fine-textured and dry, and flows seamlessly, and warmed a touch on the finish with the alcohol."


2015 Durvillea Marlborough Pinot Gris

This is Astrolabe's baby sister and is an absolute steal for the quality. Along our shores holding fast to the rocks at low tide is the seaweed Durvillea, named after the captain of the Astrolabe, Dumont D’Urville.The Durvillea Pinot Gris is made in a dry style from grapes harvested at precisely the right moment to preserve the purity and intensity of flavour in Simon Waghorn's winemaking. Aromas of peach, light pear, and dried tropical fruits and citrus peel. The palate is medium-to-full-bodied with peach, melon and nougat flavours leading to a dry finish. The suggested food match would be poultry, creamy pasta, egg or mushroom dishes and seafood.
