Ata Rangi Crimson Pinot Noir 2017

$37.00 $33.30

Crimson is our selection of fruit from younger parcels of vines from our various vineyards on the Martinborough Terrace. 2016 marks 36 years on the land at Ata Rangi, our younger vines now aged from 5-20 years. In their youth, vines tend to be more fruit expressive, gaining more complexity with time. The 2016 very much shows a turning point from vibrant youth to tension and complexity that more mature vines bring. Aromatically this wine offers layers of flavours: violets, dark cherry and plum, notes of bitter chocolate and tobacco with a faint whiff of rabbit guts. There is a fresh vibrancy on the palate of acid and smooth tannins pulling the wine through to a long, salivating finish. Cellaring 5 to 10 years.

This wine is supple and ripe with intense pear, quince and mandarin flavours.

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.

$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.
