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."

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.

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.

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.

2013 Akitu "A1" Pinot Noir Central Otago (Black Label)

2014 Te Mata "Elston" Chardonnay Hawke's Bay

95 points Sam Kim: "This is like a top-notch Burgundy; concentrated, focused and linear with scintillating fruit purity and stylish complexity. Aromas of white nectarine, rockmelon, brioche, toasted almond and flint lead to a finely textured palate that is beautifully weighted and flowing. The wine is attractive and intriguing at the same time, and delivers an extremely long, delicately mouth-watering finish. At its best: 2017 to 2024." (6/2015)
