2016 Howell Vineyard Chardonnay

$ 60.00 NZD

A clean and bright pale straw colour. Citrus, ripe grapefruit and tropical melon fruit flavours with toasty, nutty oak characters from the influence of barrels. Medium bodied yet intense and long length. The structure is nicely fleshy with great concentration while still having finesse. It is not a heavy wine and the richness and beautifully linear acidity make it a fantastic match with food. Drink in 5 – 7 years.

2015 Mangatahi Chardonnay

$ 60.00 NZD

The 2015 growing season has produced a wine that shows great concentration in a restrained package. Great aromatic complexity with citrus flavours, roasted nuts and fragrant flinty notes combining with an elegant, textured and seamless palate.
The long, fresh finish and great balance will ensure that the wine will age gracefully over the next 5 - 7 years.

2016 Pyramid Valley Field of Fire Chardonnay

$ 125.00 NZD

Brilliant, pale straw yellow. Complex aromatics: boxwood and petrichor minerality open without hesitation to ripe white peach, bright pink grapefruit, lime pith, and subtle hints of dried herbs and toasted brioche.A supple and generous roundness which dances across palate.

This 2016 Field of Fire is a standout example of power and intensity complimented by incredible poise and a lively, playful length. Pure eruption from soil and season.

2016 Pyramid Valley Angel Flower Pinot Noir

$ 125.00 NZD

Dense, sustained ruby/garnet.
Dizzyingly aromatic, swells from the glass: indurate spice – clove, cumin, caraway, cassia; ripe and bright red fruit – raspberry, redcurrant, Morello cherry. Quite a head-spinning, aromatic ride.

Penetrating, juicy, sappy, brisk yet enveloping; vibrant flavours of red fruit and spice; also a lively earthy component that is relatively new to this vineyard, arriving in recent vintages: born of vine age and a deeper root structure, no doubt. One could hardly ask for a more invigorating, seductive, and briskly legitimate example of this wine.
