2014 Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough (Elsewhere $22+)

95 points Bob Campbell: "Deliciously restrained Sauvignon Blanc with mineral, citrus/pink grapefruit, and nutty lees/brioche characters. It has a great almost ethereal texture and plenty of weight and yet boasts tantalising purity. Very sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc with concentration and power.

This vintage earned top rating with 2013 although the earlier vintage is a an overtly fruitier and more accessible style. 2014 is probably a better food wine."

2013 Felton Road "Calvert" Pinot Noir Central Otago (Biodynamic) (Elsewhere $80)

95 points James Suckling: "This is quite a sappy pinot that has beautifully articulated fragrances, herbs, red fruits and stony notes. There are also fresh boysenberries and bright, fine, chalky nuances here – bright and brimming with red cherries and raspberries. The palate has impressive structure and depth, while savory stony flavors and nutty tannins are wrapped in focused red cherry fruits, holding bright, long and energetic. Drink in 2016." (5/2014)94 points Wine Spectator: "Aromatic and very spicy, with clove, cinnamon and nutmeg details that lend plenty of intrigue to the core of fleshy plum and blac ...Read More »

2012 Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir Marlborough (Elsewhere $50) Top Pick!
2012 Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir Marlborough (Elsewhere $50)

96 points Bob Campbell: "2012 was a fairly cool vintage in Marlborough but there is certainly no lack of ripeness in this fine, elegant pinot noir. The wine has appealing density, and a sinewy texture with red cherry, spice, mineral and a hint of dried herbs and licorice. (Bob Campbell MW - Gourmet Traveler Magazine)" (6/2014)96 points Decanter: "Intense, sumptuous and wonderfully perfumed with dark plum, black cherry, a hint of violets and an appealing gamey, savoury palate. Long and complex, hinting at it’s potential. The texture is seductively silky, blanketing a spine of fine tannins. (BC) ...Read More »

2013 De La Terre "Reserve" Tannat Hawke's Bay

De La Terre is a fascinating project from prolific winemaker Tony Pritchard. The wines are very much a labor of love and I am delighted to be working with De La Terre. After a 30 career at some of NZ's top commercial wineries and as a consultant winemaker, Tony has gone back to his roots and set up his own boutique operation making crafting tiny amounts of these delicious wines. The fruit for the wines is largely from a patchwork of unique vineyard blocks on the slopes of Te Mata Peak in Hawke's Bay. The soils here are very lean and rocky with limestone ... Read More »

2013 Sato Pinot Gris (Skin Contact / Orange Wine) Central Otago

If there was a boutique producer in New Zealand that resonated with the micro-production, experimental, semi-hipster, natural, "culty" wines that have taken California by storm in the last few years, Sato would be it. Yoshiaki Sato and his wife Kyoko have quickly made a name for themselves producing some of the most highly talked about and sought after wines in NZ. While travelling in NZ last year many other winemakers I met were really quite jealous that I had managed to pry a few cases of each wine away from Yoshi (who's wines have very quickly become ...

2010 Pyramid Valley Vineyards "Calvert" Pinot Noir Central Otago Top Pick!
2010 Pyramid Valley Vineyards "Calvert" Pinot Noir Central Otago

94 points James Suckling: "Deep black-cherry and satsuma-plum fruit aromas here with some nice lift and high tones. Hints of wild thyme, roast saddle of hare, hoisin, strap licorice and spicy oak. Lovely interplay between the mineral acidity and the fruit on the palate provides a snappy, sapid drinking experience. Great fruit purity and drive throughout its length." (10/2014)93 points Bob Campbell: "From the Bannockburn district and a vineyard that is divided equally between Felton Road, Craggy Range and Pyramid Valley. Sadly that promises to end shortly now the vineyard has been sold. Soft-textured, rich ...Read More »

2014 TWR (Te Whare Ra) Riesling "M" Marlborough Top Pick!
2014 TWR (Te Whare Ra) Riesling "M" Marlborough

95 points Raymond Chan: "Hand-picked and sorted fruit, WBP and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 10.5% alc. and 25 g/L RS, TA 8.6 g/L and pH 2.9. Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale on rim. The nose is extremely elegant and tightly bound, the aromatics a little shy initially, unveiling beautifully delicate aromas of white florals intermixed with subtle lime fruits and wet-stone minerals. This has poise, detail and piquant vitality. Medium-dry to medium in sweetness and light-bodied, tightly bound and refined flavours of white florals and mouthwatering ...Read More »
