2015 Astrolabe "Province" Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

90 points Wine Spectator: "*Smart Buys* Crisp lime, grapefruit, passion fruit and lemongrass flavors show accents of fresh ginger. Smooth and succulent, especially on the finish. (MW)" (2/2016) Jancis Robinson: "Fruit is 60% Awatere Valley, 30% Wairau Valley and 10% Kekerengu Coast, which is further S of Blenheim than Awatere - cool but benefiting from warm sea air so that it has an early budburst but is late to ripen; some limestone. RS 1.4 g/l. Both grassy and stony on the nose, raising expectations of a tight, dry wine but on the palate it is richer with green-fruited ripeness. Plenty of fruit fla ...Read More »

2014 Elephant Hill "Reserve" Sauvignon Blanc Hawke's Bay

93 points Bob Campbell: "Weighty, textural Sauvignon Blanc with impressive concentration and mouth-feel. Melon, perhaps nectarine and mineral characters with a seasoning of nutty yeast lees. I like the wine's balance of acidity and fruit/alcohol sweetness. It promises to become even more interesting with bottle age. Good food wine." 92-93 points Raymond Chan: "Bright, very pale straw-colour, near colourless on rim. The nose is expressive of finesse, with elegantly and tightly bound, delicate aromas of green stonefruits interwoven with soft herbs, wet-stone minerals, unveiling sweet gooseberry fruit and rainw ...Read More »

2014 Framingham Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

92 points Bob Campbell: "Tangy Sauvignon Blanc with a mix of ripe passion fruit and guava with less ripe grapefruit and green capsicum characters. There is also a suggestion of nutty lees characters. Quite a richly textured wine thanks in part to a barrel fermented component." (11/2014) 92 points Raymond Chan: "Fruit from 8 different sites in the Wairau Valley, including North Bank, Southern Valleys, Lower Wairau, Conder’s Bend as well as a southerly site near the Awatere, given limited skin contact and fermented in stainless-steel with 7% in barrel to 13.0% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on ...Read More »

2013 Greywacke Pinot Noir Marlborough (Elsewhere $40+)

97-98 points Raymond Chan: "Marlborough Pinot Noir is severely under-recognised. Some superb bottlings have emerged over the years. Fromm, Villa Maria, Auntsfield, Saint Clair, TerraVin and Te Whare Ra to name a few. The Greywacke is another one up there. At present about 20% whole bunch. Maybe more can work well? Moderately dark ruby-red with slight purple hues. This has a full, deep nose of ripe dark raspberry and cherry fruit with an array of soft red fruits and florals, the faintest whole bunch herbal detail, some toasty oak spices. Full-flavoured and mouthfilling layers of fla ...Read More »

2013 Giesen "The Brothers Reserve" Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough (Previously $20)

A special price on "The Brothers Reserve" bottling from Giesen. Sourced from the estate's top parcels across both the Wairau and Awatere valleys. Absolutely quintessential "Marlborough Sauv Blanc"...packed full of juicy, gooseberry, citrus, tomato leaf, and stony minerals. Tons of flavor, great mouthwatering acidity, and a clean mineral finish. This bottle really shows the high quality of the 2013 vintage. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L NZ Wine Buyer)

2013 Auntsfield "Single Vineyard" Pinot Noir Southern Valleys Marlborough (Previously $30)

95 points Bob Campbell: "Big, rich and strongly fruit-focused Pinot Noir with ripe Black Doris plum, dark cherry, blackcurrant, vanilla, liquorice and spicy oak flavours with a seasoning of spice. Delicious now but with the potential to develop greater complexity in the years ahead." 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2013 Single Vineyard Pinot Noir offers notes of black cherries, black raspberries and underbrush with hints of anise and violets. Medium-bodied, the palate exhibits superb balance with a good amount of finely grained tannins and just enough acidity to support t ...Read More »

2009 Seresin "Reserve" Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough (Biodynamic) (Previously $40)

95 points Bob Campbell: "Is this New Zealand's priciest Sauvignon? Old vine fruit was whole-bunch pressed and fermented with wild yeasts, 30% in old French oak barriques for five months. The result is an intense and complex wine with a great, mouth-filling texture. Assertive yeast and oak characters. Great food wine. It's a bold statement that moves well away from the typical Marlborough style." (11/2010) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow. Passion fruit and gingery oak spices on the nose, complicated by a sweaty saline character (from the wild yeasts?). Rich, ripe, tactile and sweet, with an almost g ...Read More »

2010 Craggy Range "Gimblett Gravels Vineyard" Syrah Hawke's Bay

94 points Sam Kim: "This is stunning. The bouquet is beautifully perfumed, displaying blue/blackberry, floral, game and spice notes with elegantly infused cedary oak. It's concentrated, succulent and supple on the palate with velvety texture, finishing extremely long, backed by plenty of cushioned tannins. A young beauty showing excellent harmony and integration, making it so approachable now but will no doubt age with grace." 93 points Bob Campbell: "Few wines manage to be rich (big, mouth-filling and mellow) and vibrant (tangy, bright, fresh and full of energy) but Craggy Range Syrah somehow manage ...Read More »
