Cable Bay Awatere Valley Pinot Noir 2016

$38.00 $34.20

Aromas of red cherries, rose petal and sage integrate with underlying earthy tones . The site where this Pinot was grown is expressed wonderfully, especially on the palate; a delicate minerally texture has ensued from the riverstone built soils. The palate is vibrant and juicy with wonderful balance and a distinguished tannin structure. A gem from a fantastic vintage for the Awatere Valley. Game birds, pork terrine, cured meats. Enjoyable upon release and over the next 5-7 years.

Cable Bay Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

$24.00 $21.60

This is a complex and vibrant wine, conveying all the characteristics of a faultless  growing season by the Awatere river. Rocket flowers, passionfruit, papaya, lime  and smokey chicory aromas come together to form a wonderful nose. The palate is finely textured, with a chalky mineral element giving it maximum dimension, focused acidity and great overall balance. Refreshing and fulfilling, it is a lovely expression of our vineyard. Match with South East Asian style dishes, fresh and vibrant flavours.

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.

Hand-picked and matured on its yeast lees for up to eight months, it is not highly aromatic, but weighty and sweet-fruited, with melon, lime and slight passionfruit flavours.

Forrest Estate Chardonnay 2013

$23.00 $20.70

Bright straw-yellow in colour, this vintage has the classic John Forrest winemaking style and embodies all the best characteristics of the previous 2010 and 2011 vintages. The bouquet is seamless with aromas of delicious lemon pudding and stone-fruit, framed with biscuity, mealy nuances. The palate has medium weight with a beautiful creamy mouth feel, balanced with vibrant acidity, exuding flavours of buttery pastry and an almond, pear tarte tatin, enveloped with subtle French oak. The wine has great length with the minerality lingering on the finish.

Forrest Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2014

$23.00 $20.70

Alive to your senses with the flavours of grapefruit, elderflower, lemon thyme and passionfruit. It’s refreshing to taste and shows a weighty textural palate, with that distinctive Wairau river “wet stone” minerality and a crisp lingering finish. A classic Sauvignon Blanc that has been crafted to flourish with time and to which I’m proud to give my name.

Framingham Chardonnay 2016

$26.00 $23.40

Gentle but concentrated palate with nicely integrated layers of fruit and winemaker influence.

Fruit flavours are quite typical of Marlborough; nectarine, peach and citrus, and these are supported by a touch of oak, some creamy malo derived notes, and some oatmeal-like, battonage derived characters.
