White Wine

2014 Kusuda Martinborough Riesling

95/100 from Bob Campbell writing "Concentrated Riesling with the Kusuda trademark of purity and power. Crisp, dry wine with wet stone/ mineral, citrus/ lime and wild flower flavours. Serious Riesling with great cellaring potential.


2013 Te Mata Elston Chardonnay

Normally $38. This has to be the best Elston we have ever tried- its sure to age beutifully. Grown at Te Mata's oldest vineyard on the hillside above the winery. 19/20 Raymond Chan writing "Bright, light lemony-gold in colour. The nose is refined and tightly bound with stoneftuit, citrus fruit, mealy, nutty elements, and oak spices forming a concentrated core. Fine detail and complexing savoury, creamy nuances unfold, and the richness of fruit becomes apparent with some aeration. Medium to medium-full bodied, softly concentrated flavours of grapefruit and yellow stonefruits are melded with nuts and biscuits and a hint of lemon curd. The flavours grow and bloom through the mid-palate. A fine line of acidity with the finest textures guide the palate to a lush, richly concentrated and lingering finish. This changes and grows with air time. 5-6 years. Hand-picked fruit, WBP and fully barrel-fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in new and seasoned oak with lees contact and 100% MLF. 19.0-/20."


2013 Marc Bredif Vouvray

RRP is $33. Owned by the Baron de Ladoucette, their Chenin Blanc's are made in a state-of-the art winery within the landmark Château du Nozet and are considered to be some of the finest examples of their type. Grown on the lower slopes along the Loire Valley in Vouvray and Vernou-sur-Brenne, the grapes for the Marc Brédif Vouvray enjoy Northern/Southern exposure. The vineyards have soils of mainly chalk clay, with some parcels having flint clay soils. The vineyards are 25-30 years old on average. "The wine is a brilliant pale gold. On the nose, there is a fine bouquet full aromas of white flowers and yellow fruit such as pears. One finds citrus notes such as grapefruit. The attack is gentle with a lovely vivacity where one finds agreeable notes of grapefruit on the lingering finish. It is a lovely wine, ripe and refreshing."


2014 Craggy Range Te Muna Martinborough Pinot Gris

This is the first time we have been able to offer a Craggy Range Gris and it is limited. "Multiple French clones of Pinot Gris from Te Muna Road Vineyard are hand harvested together for freshness of flavour and carefully pressed to extract the purest juice and lovely spicy notes from this fragrant cultivar’s skins. Slow but warm fermentations then create a lovely round palate feel to counter the vibrancy of fruit which is a hallmark of our Te Muna Road Vineyard. The result is a refreshing wine which exhibits fragrant spices, fruit purity and luscious texture."


2012 Jadot Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot

"The 2012 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot -Clos de la Chapelle- comes from the 2-hectare monopole that produced around 24 barrels. It has a lovely, sensual nose with apricots and cream emerging from the glass accompanied by hints of almond. The palate is well-balanced with a clean, fresh sprightly opening: citrus lemon, orange zest and apricot that feel harmonious and beautifully focused. This is a tender, intellectual Chassagne." 91-93 Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


2012 Jadot Santenay Clos de Malte

A superb chardonnay from Burgundy. "The 2012 Santenay Clos de Malte (white) comes from Jadot’s two-hectare parcel that is high in altitude, unlike many of the other whites in the village that tend to be on the plain. Lucid straw in color, the nose is tight but attractive, gradually opening in the glass to reveal beeswax and honeysuckle notes. The palate is lively and quite fat on the entry, enveloping the mouth with its tropical notes allied with lovely citrus lemon and lime zest to maintain tautness and freshness. This comes highly recommended." 88-90/100 Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


2009 Mountford Estate Waipara Chardonnay


2012 Sebastiani Sonoma Chardonnay

Wow- a big, gutsy American Chardonnay- a chardonnay drinkers chardonnay and a style that we struggle to find in NZ at this price point. Like the zinfandel it offers superb buying. For more than four decades, Sonoma County has been one of the premier regions in California for Chardonnay. Their multiplicity of climates and soils provide a broad range of sites perfectly-suited for this noble grape. Hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed the wine features citrus, green apple, vanilla and caramel in the nose with a dollop of roasty/toasty oak on the palate. Excellent stuff.


2011 Jadot Corton Charlemagne

"Like the Montrachet, this is also presently quite aromatically reticent with its aromas of lemon/lime, wet stone and Granny Smith apples that are trimmed in a subtle application of warm oak. The equally expansive, taut and well-muscled broad-shouldered flavors possess an ample amount of dry extract and intensity on the driving finish that exhibits a faint saline character. I very much like the intensity here as well as the very dry backend and this should be superb if allowed adequate cellar time."92-95 Burghound "Pale lemon-yellow. Pungent aromas of pineapple, lavender, white pepper, stone and menthol. Dense, supple and sweet but with terrific stony cut to its citrus, pineapple and fresh herb flavors. Penetrating but not at all hard. The very firmly structured finish shows excellent limey persistence and lift. "94+ Tanzer


2010 Ashwood Gisborne Pinot Gris

An absolute steal now at the new low price of $14.99. Made by Nick Nobilo at Vinoptima this was $29. One of those big, textural Alsace styles of Pinot Gris that people continually ask us for but we hardly ever find in this price category. "Plump, peachy wine with a lovely creamy texture. Characterful wine with lovely intense tree fruit flavours and a lingering finish. Classy Pinot Gris in a truly Alsace-like style." Bob Campbell. Way undervalued for the quality this delivers.
