2013 Mt. Hector Pinot Noir Wairarapa (Elsewhere $15+)

92 points Bob Campbell: "Bright, fresh and reasonably concentrated Pinot Noir with strongly varietal plum and cherry flavours. Nice purity and a fine-grained texture. The wine has an honesty and vinosity (as opposed to "fruitiness") that I like. Excellent value at this price. SRP $17.99" K&L Notes: Exceptional value in Pinot Noir. This wine from Mt. Hector is truly one of the best value reds we have in store. Given that it's Pinot Noir (a notoriously difficult / expensive grape variety to cultivate) the quality for price ratio is even more astounding! Master of Wine Bob Campbell (NZ's most p...

2013 Mount Edward Pinot Noir Central Otago (Elsewhere $40)

96 points James Suckling: "There's impressive clarity and depth here, and this is nicely struck. Ripe-dark-cherry and plum fruit aromas abound, along with a subtle spice and fragrant layer, too; this is gently herbal, flinty and complex. The palate is immaculately cast in the form of the tannins that ride side by side with crunchy, dark-cherry-fruit flesh and flavors. This is a super-even, impressively balanced and elegantly powerful wine. One of their finest and purest Pinots to date. The structure is mesmerizing. Drink now." 95 points Bob Campbell: "Impressively complex Pinot Noir with reasonably intense ...Read More »

2015 Villa Maria "Private Bin" Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough (Elsewhere $14)

91 points Bob Campbell: "*Four Stars* A blend of grapes from the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. One of the first examples of 2015 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc I have tasted. If it is typical of the vintage then it appears to have been an excellent year. A smaller than usual crop might explain greater than usual concentration in this wine. Citrus, grapefruit, melon and a hint of passion fruit supported by juicy acidity. Good value at this price." (7/2015)

2013 Quarter Acre Sauvignon Blanc Hawke's Bay (Previously $17)

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 Sauvignon Blanc is a lovely illustration of the diversity of styles coming from New Zealand. These grapes were grown at vineyards in Maraekakaho and Tuki Tuki on terraces over... Read More »

The bouquet is soft and full with deeply concentrated aromas of greengages, nectarines and green stonefruits along with layers of sweet, piquant herbs and complexing spicy, nutty oak. Creamy MLF and barrel elements, and some smoky suggestions add interest. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the flavours of green stonefruits, nectarines, greengages and tropical fruit are rich, up-front and mouthfilling, building in depth and density. Harmonious layers of spices, herbs and nuts unfold ...Read More »

2013 Clos Henri (Henri Bourgeois-Sancerre) Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

93 points Bob Campbell: "Creamy textured Sauvignon Blanc with grapefruit, gooseberry, mineral and a seasoning of hazelnut lees flavours. Quite a grassy style but with concentration and some complexity." (10/2014) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "It’s interesting to compare this to the 2014, which I also tasted recently. The 2013 is balanced and silky by comparison, with a fine tapestry of interwoven aromas ranging from pineapple and mixed citrus to charming herbaceousness and fresh-cut grass.

2013 Sato Pinot Noir Central Otago (Previously 35)

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.
