White Wine

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 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.

2011 Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay

A special aged release exclusively for us. Oh so nice to get bottle aged top shelf chardonnay and this Kumeu River aged release is stunning. 91/100 from Robert parkers Wine Advocate writing "The 2011 Estate Chardonnay is scented of white peaches and golden delicious apples with underlying hints of orange peel, lime blossoms and fresh cream. Medium-bodied with great tension in the mouth lending support to the stone fruit and yeast-laced layers, it finishes with very good length. Drink it now to 2016+." Thanks Kumeu River- this is a great buy.

$26.99

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

$31.99

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

$120.00

2010 Bouchard Meursault Genevrieres

In olden days, the vineyards of this great Meursault must have been surrounded by junipers (genévriers) whose name has lived on. This prestigious appellation was classed as a "Tête de cuvée" as early as 1855. "Bright, pale yellow. Lemon, spices and smoky minerality on the nose. Silky on entry, then expands to fill the mouth with rich yet brisk flavors of lemon, dusty stone and vanillin oak. Good acidity gives the wine excellent cut but there's nothing austere about this very nicely balanced premier cru. The captivating rising finish shows a lightly smoky quality and noteworthy finesse." 92/100 S.Tanzer

$105.00

2013 Auburn Bannockburn Riesling

Normally $34. The label has been discontinued which is unfortunate as Auburn was a specialist riesling producer but he has left to ply his trade in Orgegan. ( limited availabilty ) "Brilliant, very pale straw colour with green hues, near colourless. The bouquet is soft and delicately pristine with pure white florals intermixed with mineral intricacies, the aromatics showing an understated concentration and power. Medium dry to medium in taste and light-bodied, this is very tight, slender and refined in presentation with a beautifully cutting, refreshing and slippery mouthfeel. The flavours of white florals and honeysuckle combine with limes and a suggestion of wet stones and show with a subtle lusciousness. The acidity has tension and energy and provides a thirst-quenching vitality carrying the palate to a delicate, nuanced and sustained finish with sweet citrus and floral notes. This is a beautifully lively and delicate, pristine medium Riesling with a subtle lusciousness. Serve as an aperitif or match with Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese cuisine over the next 6-8+ years. 19.5-/20"Raymond Chan
