2012 Neudorf "Tom's Block" Pinot Noir Nelson (Elsewhere $30) Top Pick!
2012 Neudorf "Tom's Block" Pinot Noir Nelson (Elsewhere $30)

93 points James Suckling: "Sourced from a plot a short distance from the estate vineyard, this has a similarly concentrated and earthy signature of the Upper Moutere section of the region, but is invariably a lighter, brighter and more singular style of wine from the estate Moutere bottling. Vibrant red cherries on the nose, there's attractive freshness here, some bracken and brown baking spices. Oak is bright but the fruit is on top. The palate is supple and full with really smoothly fleshy texture that holds fine, suspended tannins. Plenty of dark spiced cherry flavor, a flurry ...Read More »

2013 Te Kairanga Estate Pinot Noir Martinborough

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2013 Martinborough Estate Pinot Noir gives notes of black cherries, cassis and black berry scents with nuances of tree bark and aniseed. Light to medium-bodied, it offers delicate flavors and just enough chewy structure, finishing with good length. (LPB)" (1/2015) K&L Notes: A classic Martinborough Pinot back on our shelves after too long of an absence. And what a stellar vintage to get back in the saddle. This is beautiful, soft, rich easy to love Pinot. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L New Zealand Wine Buyer) Winemaker's Notes: "Our 2013 Pinot ... Read More »

2013 TWR (Te Whare Ra) Riesling "D" Marlborough (Elsewhere $25+)

93 points James Suckling: "Perfumed and fragrant with lime and lemon aromas flecked with higher tones of jasmine, frangipani and citrus blossom. Great fruit purity and clarity here. Driven along by a shaft of stony, mineral acidity, the wine finishes with a sherbet-like, lemony blast. Great stuff. Drink now." (10/2014) K&L Notes: "Winery of the Year 2014" Raymond Chan. Te Whare Ra is a small, organic, family-run winery in New Zealand. A textbook summer resulted in a fabulous 2013 vintage and Riesling that will drink now and over the next decade. The Riesling "D" comes exclusively from 30+ year... Read More »

2012 Seifried "Sweet Agnes" Botrytis Riesling Nelson (375ml)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Sweet Agnes Riesling exudes intense aromas of lemon marmalade, lime cordial and jasmine with hints of musk and honeyed peaches. The palate is very, very sweet yet is lifted with racy acidity that reveals lots of rich, silky layers of citrus flavors and carries through a long finish. It is delicious now but shows the potential to develop over 4-6 years. (90+)" (10/2012)

2011 Te Mata "Awatea" Bordeaux Blend Hawkes Bay (Elsewhere $40)

Sam Kim Wine Orbit 94 points: "In true Awatea form, this vintage offers youthful charm as well as potential for graceful development. The bouquet is fragrant showing red/black plum, cassis, floral and hints of game and dried herbs. It's flowing and textured on the palate with lovely mid-palate weight and fine chalky tannins providing excellent frame and balance. A beautiful expression of Awatea." The 2011 Awatea is basically a baby Coleraine made for more short term consumption though I have no doubt this wine will drink for a decade plus. The wine has ... Read More »

2013 Quarter Acre Viognier Hawke's Bay

Quarter Acre is a small project from highly acclaimed winemaker Rod Mcdonald. This tiny range of wines represent small productions for tiny vineyard parcels (hence Quarter Acre) from sites that he thinks have a unique expression of terroir. These are his most "edgy" wines that push the boundaries of non-interventionist winemaking in pursuit of purity and authenticity of place. This is certainly one the best Viogniers I have come across anywhere in the world. The grapes were grown at vineyards in Maraekakaho on terraces overlooking the Ngaruroro River. T... Read More »
