The wine store with passion

Wine drinking has a very, very important rule: drink what you like! But never be afraid to try something new or different. Wine drinking should be fun, free of much of the garbage that interferes with the rest of our lives. It should be a catalyst for social intercourse. It should be pleasurable and memorable, it should be savoured and discussed, it should be fun.

Hunters Marlborough Chardonnay 2013


When Michael Cooper first produced his list of Classic New Zealand Wines, this wine was on it (as was the Palliser). Over the years it has won a stack of Gold Medals, the 2011 and 2012 both received this honour. However it is in the really top vintages like 2013 that this wine is an absolute star. In a tasting of several 2013 newly released Chardonnay this wine was a star in terms of quality; when its price was revealed we were astounded.
This wine has a major accolade or three in its future we predict.
Silver International Cool Climate Wine Show 2014
“Clean, uncluttered style, oak used as a condiment which allows the fruit to speak and it does this well. A nicely tasty wine showing depth and vitality in fine condition, dry and very food-friendly. Chardonnay in no hurry, perhaps best 2015 but with plenty of fine drinking after that.” Peter Saunders, Independent Wine Writer

"A delicately expressed Sauvignon, the elegant bouquet shows lime zest, white peach, flint and herbaceous aromas, leading to a juicy palate that’s taut and racy. It’s finely textured and firmly structured, and finishes linear and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2016. Nov 2013." Sam Kim Wine Orbit

The bouquet is softly full and voluminous with ripe, pungent passionfruit and tropical fruit aromas that show good depth and building intensity...Some sweet lime and tropical fruit elements add interest. A dry, textural line underscores the fruit and mouthwatering acidity is present... This is a soft, ripe and passionfruity Sauvignon Blanc with a dry, textural mouthfeel." Raymond Chan December 2013
This wine has really hit its straps. Fresh & Vibrant; passionfruit, acid balance and a togetherness that simply wasn't there on release 12 months ago. This wine is showing just how good a vintage 2013 was. It is drinking superbly now. Frankly it deserves a Gold; at this price it gets a Double Gold for value.

he said...
"Fruit from an elevated terrace overlooking Bannockburn, hand-picked and mainly cool-fermented in stainless-steel, with a portion by indigenous yeasts in old oak barrels to 14.0% alc. and 15 g/L rs. Winemakers: Dan and Sarah-Kate Dineen. Brilliant straw-yellow colour, lighter on rim. This has an elegant, lifted nose of white florals, pears and delicate spices, along with honeysuckle notes, all with a degree of the exotic. Off-dry to taste, this is medium-bodied with subtly lifted minerally stonefruit flavours intermingling with florals and spices. The palate has an understated weight and depth, with a growing richness and lusciousness providing concentration and smooth textures. The fresh acidity and liveliness is in good balance and leads to a sustained finish. An alluring Pinot Gris with exotic fruit elements and excellent textures. Match with tapas and dim sum over the next 3-4+ years..."

A massive deal on this fine, beautifully presented Prosecco from Italy. Again we featured it in 2013, we believe it has got better. It is delightful; extremely classy and not to be missed.
It's a wonderfully refreshing, beautifully packaged, super stylish wine.

Made from Glera, the traditional Prosecco grape, it is a just off dry, lightly sparkling wine with a light straw colour with fine, long lasting bubbles. It has a bouquet bursting with fruity notes of apple, pear and white peach and those flavours flow through to the palate. Delightful by itself or simply wonderful with food. Delicious bubbles.

Te Mata Awatea Hawkes Bay 2013


Classic Status Michael Coopers Wine Companion
The long awaited 2013 is here
. "An intense deep crimson, Awatea 13 is a true classic. The fragrance immediately captivates with notes of dark roast coffee, chocolate, vanilla and toast entwined with the fruit. Hints of bay leaf and mint keep the aromas fresh and lively. The palate unfolds with ripe berry flavours and a rich mouthfeel, while ripe tannins give a delightfully fine finish. From perfect growing conditions, the intense fruit concentration remains refined. Elegant and powerful, Awatea ’13 is a masterpiece." Te Mata's words say it beautifully. A 'true classic' and 'a masterpiece' are terms rarely used by the kings of wine making at Te Mata. We believe them without question.

he said...
“Plums, a little earth and subtle nougat/vanilla oak. It’s smooth, chocolaty and velveteen - a real crowd pleaser with a bit to toasty warmth and no shortage of flavour. Hale and hearty, sweetly fruited with plenty of charm. I wrote at the time “steak and chips”, which means I was either hungry or thought this would be a good match…or it might have been a metaphor for something. Not sure. Can’t remember. Never mind. It hits the spot, and that’s what’s most important. I thought it was the best of the 2008 Rufus Stone releases, although that’s largely a matter of personal taste, rather than one of quality.”

"The aromas of ripe plums and blackcurrant are kept in check by mineral and spice typical of the region. The use of Burgundian coopered French oak has boosted the richness of the palate and the tight, elegant finish classic of this Rhone style. A powerful wine with an element of finesse and elegance keeping the wine impeccably balanced. The wine was minimally handled and unfiltered to maintain its full flavour and body, however because of this it could develop a crust with age so decanting is recommended before serving."

Ringbolt 2012 Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon


Gold Melbourne Royal Wine Show 2014
90 Points Wine Spectator
90 points Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail (Canada), 27 May 2014

“Ripe and expressive, this firm red has depth, showing black currant, black cherry and sage flavors that persist as the finish lingers.” Wine Spectator
“Named after a late-1800s shipwreck that also gave its name to Ringbolt Bay, the brand is crafted in remote southwest Australia. How they get it here at this price is a marvel of modern transportation economics. The 2012 vintage of this consistently good red is full-bodied, smooth and succulent, with prominent flavours of black currant and cherry. The tell tale hint of mint, classic to Australia’s relatively cool western Margaret River region, is here, too, as is an intriguing whisper of mossy earth. Medium-rare steak would be perfect.” The Globe and Mail (Canada)
2012 was the 6th vintage in a row that Cabernet Sauvignon was rated 9 or 10 out of 10 on the Langton's definitive vintage report - it's no wonder winemaker Peter Gambetta recommends confident cellaring of up to 10 years.

Gris Caillou Bordeaux 2006


There has been a disaster at the warehouse. With an accident causing the damage then repacking of the wine. Now packed in Dozen boxes with some bottle receiving red wines stains we are offering these dozens at this one off super deal. It simply won't last.
We featured this wine in 2013 and thought very highly of it. We tasted it again within the last month and were blown away. It has got better.
This classical Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc is eight years old and simply yummy. A wine this good would have been in the $30+ bracket until very recently.
A great Bordeaux nose full of bright berries spices and a palate loaded with cassis and tobacco flavours. It finishes with a delightfully creamy acidity and fine tannins.
It compares brilliantly to a Hawkes Bay Bordeaux blend in the $25 to $35 easily. It will reach its 10th birthday easier and could reach well beyond that. If you like Bordeaux blends this well-structured red is truly excellent buying.
