Cable Bay Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2016

$29.00 $26.10

PPapaya, gooseberry, vanilla and guava aromas all come together in a striking fusion with hints of flinty struck match. The palate has a lovely toasty backbone surrounded by zesty acidity, pith like phenolics and nice fruit weight through the mid-palate. The finish goes on and on for miles, I can still taste it now; 10 minutes later. This fumé blanc style sauvignon makes its own rules; the freshly pressed tuxedo might be a classic, but the shoes are Converse.  Suits any occasion, but pairs particularly well with seafood dishes.  Enjoy now and for the next 5-10 years.

Cable Bay Waiheke Island Viognier 2017

$35.00 $33.25

Bush honey, apricot, spicy orange zest, lemonade and elderflower aromatics combine to form a rich, delightful nose. The use of French Acacia and Oak barrels, coupled with ageing on yeast lees, has imparted an extra dimension to the flavour profile of this wine; lovely texture with spicy complexity, juicy fruit and balancing acidity. Grape skin contact before pressing has created its heartening phenolic structure. A softhearted golden girl with unwavering backbone. Never one to be content in the background, she is quick witted and overflowing with personality. Enjoy with goat cheese tortellini with smokey bacon lardons and parmesan. Enjoyable upon release this wine will reward cellaring of a further 3 years.

Carrick Wines Bannockburn Pinot Gris 2017

$28.00 $25.20

A wonderful textural element on the palate that is reflective of an Alsatian style while retaining a clean acidity that is a hallmark of our windblown glacial soils on the Cairnmuir terraces in Bannockburn. Subtle blossom aromas with flavours of white nectarine close to the stone are evident. A lovely structural white wine that sits nicely in the glass, perfect as a late afternoon aperitif.  Pair with South East Asian cuisine and enjoy.

Carrick Wines Bannockburn Riesling 2016

$28.00 $25.20

A limited season due to low crops has produced an intense and brilliant vintage. This is a beautifully aromatic wine with Jasmine, apricot and white blossoms filling the glass. On the palate this wine exhibits excellent fruit purity and excellent balance. Like a juicy Naval Orange, the flesh and texture of this Riesling is a real joy to us. Refreshing and perfect as an aperitif, match with your favorite seafood dish or simply serve with a good salty hard cheese, cantaloupe and parma ham. Drink now.

Carrick Wines EBM Chardonnay 2016

$48.00 $43.20

The additional six months in neutral oak on light sediments increases the depth of the mouth feel found in the mid palate. This added texture, coupled with the fruit and restrained acidity, ultimately leads to a long seamless finish. A very well balanced wine – a great accompaniment to fresh food with clean ingredients.

Cottier Estate Emily Chardonnay 2016

$22.50 $21.38

A classic wine of Gladstone terroir.  This year maintains the standard with the wine’s mouth filling richness and intensity.  The palate continues to be classic with traditional wine making techniques unchanged.  Regular lees stirring in best French barriques is enhanced by secondary fermentation in Springtime.  Toasty oak with beautiful peaches and cream.  A touch of minerality, but with a silky finish.  Excellent balance.

Cottier Estate Unoaked Chardonnay 2014

$22.50 $20.25

Before the palate sensation, the aromas display ripe and fruity peach, melon and a little citrus. These aromas are in turn accentuated by the taste experience of fresh, textured ripe fruit, without the sometimes intrusive complexity of an oak overlay. An elegant wine, with a long and seamless finish.

Domain Road Dry Riesling 2016

$26.00 $23.40

Pale straw with clear hues, our Water Race Riesling is a dry style with balanced crisp acidity. Aromas of lime and mandarin dominate on the nose with hints of floral and ginger. Lemon, lime and stonefruit flavours show on the palate leading to a long mineral finish. An excellent food wine, full of flavour, so it can hold its own against quite strong flavoured cuisine. Also excellent with fish and seafood.

Easthope Skeetfield Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2015

$41.00 $36.90

This warm vintage produced ripe flavours at low potential alcohol. The initial aromatic impact is gunflint, peach and citrus blossom. The palate belies its relatively low alcohol level with rich flavours and a creamy texture punctuated by vivid fresh citrus fruits. This wine is a keeper; offering great maturation potential over the next 5-7 years.
