2014 Tongue in Groove "Cabal Vineyard" Pinot Noir Waipara Valley North Canterbury Top Pick!
2014 Tongue in Groove "Cabal Vineyard" Pinot Noir Waipara Valley North Canterbury

96 points Bob Campbell: "*Five Stars* From a clay and fragmented limestone soils of a vineyard in North Waipara. Around 35% whole-bunches were used to give structure and intensity. An impressively complex wine, with a mix of cherry, plum and chalky/mineral flavors, with a more savory, baked earth, dried herb character. Nicely structured so the wine is accessible but promises to age well." (1/2015) 95 points Decanter: "Wonderfully complex and enticing bouquet of limestone like mineral, ripe red berry fruits, distinctive oak and spice moments.

Ripe-dark-cherry and plum fruit aromas abound, along with a subtle spice and fragrant layer, too; this is gently herbal, flinty and complex.

2016 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

The winemakers at Kim Crawford tend towards the more herbaceous end of the flavor profile, aiming for a classic expression of crisp, grassy, and snappy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Thus it follows that specific vineyard sites in New Zealand's Marlborough region are carefully selected each year to produce this wine. Fruit is night-harvested, when the temperatures are cool to minimize oxidation, making it easier to manage in the winery. Look for what you know and love about this refreshing Kiwi staple: upfront herbaceous aromas, backed by ripe fruit flavor... Read More »

2013 Momo (Seresin) Pinot Noir Marlborough

91 points Bob Campbell: "Ripe, plummy wine with cherry, raspberry, violet and a savoury, earthy character. Sweet fruit mesh with fine and slightly sappy tannins to give a drying finish. It's a seriously interesting and very honest Pinot Noir offering great value at this price." (8/2015) 90 points Decanter: "*Expert's Choice* Restrained red fruit with subtle savoury and spicy nuances; firm bite of acidity balances soft tannins. Appealing tartness."

2013 Misha's Vineyard "Lyric" Riesling Central Otago

95-96 points Raymond Chan: "Brilliant light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale edged. This has a very soft and gently full nose with beautifully interwoven aromas of lime fruit with nuances of talc which are melded with layers of delicate flinty barrel-ferment notes.

Dry to taste, the palate is very finely poised with a tight and refined core of chalky minerals and flint entwined with lime fruit, along with a suggestion of talc and sherbet.

2015 Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc Waihopai Valley Marlborough

92 points Bob Campbell: "Well-made Sauvignon Blanc, with green capsicum, gooseberry, grapefruit, melon and a hint of passionfruit flavour. Quite a textural wine with weight and mouth-feel. Satisfying Sauvignon that captures the essence of the variety and region" (10/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Intense and aromatic, this opens with a whiff of smoke to the Meyer lemon, melon and apple flavors, mingling with honeysuckle and pear details and lingering on the long finish.

2014 Fromm Winery Riesling Spätlese Marlborough (Medium)

96 points Bob Campbell: "Absolutely delicious wine Riesling with wonderful purity and an exquisite sweet/sour tension. Citrus/floral and chalky mineral flavours. This is one of the country’s lowest alcohol wines (7%) but it has been made with a total focus on quality, the alcohol is incidental." 95 points Sam Kim: "As you would expect, this consistently awesome label once again delivers huge amount of pleasure with this latest offering. Fabulous aromas of lemon curd, apple blossom, nectarine and touch of flint on the nose. The palate is equally appealing, and exhibits linear mouthfeel, fine texture a ...Read More »
