  • Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Kim Crawford, Marlborough, 12% vol, 37.5cl

    Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Kim Crawford, Marlborough, 12% vol, 37.5cl

    NZW20

    The grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley and the neighbouring Awatere Valley. The vines ranged in age from 18 months to 15 years bringing a mix of youthful vigour and depth of flavour.

     

    The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the evening and overnight to preserve flavour and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact.  Fermentations were carried out at low temperatures and when all tanks had completed fermentation they were proportionately blended, fined, stabilised and bottled.

    Lovely pale yellow. Tropical melon and pineapple aromas, passion fruit and lifted citrus aromas. A mouth-filling wine packed with fruit sweetness balanced by mouth-watering acidity and a fresh, zesty, lingering finish.

  • Grüner Veltliner 2016, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 12% vol, 75cl

    Grüner Veltliner 2016, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 12% vol, 75cl

    NZW10

    Pioneers of Nelson winemaking, Hermann and Agnes Seifried planted their first vineyards in 1973. Today Seifried Estate is one of New Zealand’s leading family owned wineries.

     

    Grüner Veltliner is the famous aromatic grape variety from Austria (Hermann Siefried’s homeland).

     


    Fruit is from Seifried’s Brightwater & Edens Road Vineyards. Here the soil is very poor and stony and water and nutrient levels are low. This helps to restrict the plants vigour and to crop at low levels.  To further enhance the aromatics, leaves were removed to allow light penetration and air movement around the grapes. The Brightwater vineyard is situated 15km from the coast and is sheltered from the south by the Richmond Ranges.

     

    The “soil” is a combination of rocks and boulders, which is very hard on the farm equipment, but vital for holding the warmth of Nelson’s sun, and ripening the Grüner Veltliner fruit.

     


    This 2016 Grüner Veltliner is fine and gently structured. The nose has delicate floral notes and mellow stone fruit elements. Palate entry is very enticing with white pepper notes and summer stone fruits. The finish is off dry and well proportioned with lovely smooth fruit on the palate.

  • “Old Coach Road” Pinot Noir 2017, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    “Old Coach Road” Pinot Noir 2017, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    NZR11

    The Pinot Noir is from Seifried’s Brightwater and Rabbit Island Vineyards.

     

    Brightwater Vineyard is situated 15 km from the coast and is sheltered from the south by the Richmond ranges. The ‘soil’ is a combination of rocks and boulders which is very hard on the farm equipment but vital for holding the warmth of Nelson’s sun.

     

    Rabbit Island vineyards are situated on a wide river flat. The soil is made up of gravelly sandy loam and free draining. The water table is relatively high ensuring adequate underground water.

    The grapes were picked and then underwent a five day cold maceration period before being inoculated for fermentation. The cap was plunged 2-3 times daily during fermentation. A further 3-6 days of skin contact followed the fermentation period before the wine was drained to oak barrels for an immediate malolactic fermentation and ageing.

    The Old Coach Road Pinot Noir is warm and varietal. Summer berry fruits, notes of plum and gentle savoury spices define the nose and palate. The wine has a long, warm, generous finish that lasts on the palate.

  • “The Trinity” 2014, Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    “The Trinity” 2014, Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    NZR12

    55% Merlot, 17% Tempranillo, 13% Cabernet Franc, 8 % Malbec & 7% Syrah (Shiraz).

     

    The grapes are sourced from vineyards predominantly in the Gimblett Gravels along with some from the larger Hawkes Bay region.  The soils are deep river gravels, left by the Ngaruroro River as it changed course over many thousands of years.  Their low fertility, give small crops with highly concentrated flavours and aromas. Trinity Hill sources fruit from four of their own vineyard sites within the Gimblett Gravels sub-region.

     

    The grapes were gently de-stemmed prior to fermentation. Colour and tannins were extracted by gentle daily pumping over. The skin maceration was extended for up to three weeks following fermentation to soften and integrate the tannins. Following 14 months ageing in a combination of small French oak and stainless steel tanks, the individual varieties were blended to create the ideal marriage of the components.

     

    The leather and plum aromas of the Merlot combine with spice and red fruit characters of Tempranillo and Malbec. Cassis aromas and structural backbone are provided by the Cabernet Franc. Richness and soft, ripe tannins make a serious yet eminently drinkable wine.

  • Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Isabel Estate, Marlborough, 13% vol, 75cl

    Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Isabel Estate, Marlborough, 13% vol, 75cl

    NZ02

    Isabel Estate is nestled into the heart of the Wairau Valley in Marlborough, situated at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. Marlborough is New Zealand’s largest and most successful wine producing area renowned for the production of exuberantly fruity Sauvignon Blanc and intensely aromatic wines.

     

    Established in 1980 by Michael & Robyn Tiller, Isabel Estate has some of the oldest vines in Marlborough producing exceptional quality grapes and wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling. The Estate has been under the ownership of Australian drinks company Pinnacle since 2014 with Jeremy McKenzie (ex Villa Maria) is in charge of the wine making ensuring the high standards of this fine estate are maintained.

     

    The grapes were picked during the first two weeks of April due to the fantastic weather conditions. It was decided to make two picks; a small portion early to capture varietal character and acidity, and the rest when it was ripe and balanced. Both picks were done at night to retain freshness. All blocks and picks were kept separate to maintain individuality. The fruit was fermented in stainless steel tanks with a small portion of wild ferment. The final blend was then made and bottled.

     

    “Lush aromas of pineapple, Kaffir lime leaves, elderflower and lychee explode from the glass. The palate is rich, offering fresh green mango, passionfruit & guava.  The finish is persistent and coupled with the classic Isabel wet-stone minerality, makes this wine extremely refreshing. With its balanced acidity this wine is delicious in its youth.”

    Pristine Pinot Gris with lovely fruit purity and classic fresh pear juice, elderflower and chalky mineral flavours. Lingering a linear with impressive power. Made in an off/dry style but with enough acidity to generate a fairly dry finish. Lovely wine.”
