2019 Wairau Sauvignon Blanc

$ 28.00 NZD

Wonderful aromatics of yellow flowers, lime, and a warm summer meadow. Lovely delicious palate brimming with nectarine, fresh lime, and hints of ripe nectarine and gooseberry finishing with a lovely long feel of the stony soils and refreshing acidity.

2017 Heretaunga Chardonnay

$ 40.00 NZD

A clean and bright pale straw colour. Fruit flavours of citrus, white flowers, ripe grapefruit and melon. The style is mid-weight with elegant oak noticeably present, providing texture and lingering flavours of cashew, roasted almond and popcorn.

The structure is nicely fleshy with great concentration showing with finesse. It displays delicacy, but the richness and beautifully linear acidity make it a fantastic match with food.

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 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.

2016 Pyramid Valley Earth Smoke Pinot Noir

$ 125.00 NZD

Saturated, opaque ruby/garnet.
Fascinatingly, astonishingly, unlike its sibling, the Angel Flower, given proximity and wine-making and –growing equalities: pungent soil tones, tobacco/bark and fresh-turned earth, also with dried herbs: bay, lavender, Mexican oregano, even. The fruit spectrum is blue and black. Really sings soil, stratum.

Great weight and texture, dense but mouth-coating, with brighter fruit flavours than the nose might suggest: blueberry, blackberry, sloe. Salinity, from significant active lime in the soil, waters the mouth, extending an already obdurate length. Whereas, with vine age, the Angel Flower is adding content to its early charm, the Earth Smoke seems to be marrying fruit succulence to its established, adamantine, soil-sponsored clout.

2016 Cantera

$ 60.00 NZD

A deep, intense ruby red colour with complex dark red fruits predominant on the nose. A beautiful meld of spicy berry aromas with liquorice and sweet oak in the background. The three varieties in this wine complement each other in both aroma and palate. The Cabernet Sauvignon delivers power and structure, the Tempranillo, juiciness and flesh with the Cabernet Franc adding aromatic lift and freshness.

A unique Hawkes Bay blend with the structure that will allow it to age for at least 10 years.
