2013 Domaine Rewa Central Otago Chardonnay

Domaine Rewa is a tiny 5.5 hectare vineyard located on the alluvial terrace nestled in the foothills of the Pisa Range. Although the property was planted in 1997, 2011 was Domaine Rewa’s first vintage. Production is tiny- only 10 barrels of chardonnay were made. Wanting to make the most of this special plot of land, Philippa Shepherd works with Grant Rolston, Gary Ford and winemaker Pete Bartle ( ex Peregrine ) to pursue her dream of producing refined wines inspired by the elegance of Burgundy. She employs biodynamic land practices.

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.

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.

2014 Stanley Estate Single Vineyard Awatere Chardonnay

Normal RRP $28 and with Eveline Fraser ( ex Cloudy Bay ) as winemaker this is a great buy. 17.5/20 from Raymond Chan writing "This has a softly concentrated nose with well packed stonefruit, citrus fruit and mealy aromas melded harmoniously with complexing flint and mineral elements, nuts and a creamy barrel-ferment note. Medium-full bodied, the palate features a firm and dense core of stonefruits, citrus fruits and mealy elements, layered with flint, mineral and oaky detail. The mouthfeel has weight and vinosity, the palate flowing along a smooth, near creamy line. A fine phenolic thread and lacy acidity balances the fruit and barrel-ferment richness, and the wine carries to a slender, lingering dry finish with citrus nuances. This is a well-concentrated, weighty Chardonnay with nutty and citrus flavours, and a creamy, fine-textured line. Match with seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 4-5 years. Hand-picked fruit from 12 y.o. vines, barrel-fermented, 60% by indigenous yeasts to13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 10% new French oak barriques, undergoing batonnage. 127 dozen made. 17.5+/20 May 2015 RRP $28.50." A GOOD BUY

$19.99

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.

$69.99

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. 95/100 from Bob Campbell writing "Intense, elegant Chardonnay with citrus/grapefruit, mineral/gunflint and biscuit, brioche and spicy oak flavours. The wine subtle fruit sweetness that is nicely restrained by fruity acidity and a suggestion of tannins. Reasonably complex Chardonnay with development potential."

$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

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.
