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.

Carrick Unravelled Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

$19.99

Stunning Return
When we last featured this wine it was a massive hit. The juicy palate, intensity and drinkability all hit the spot. Unravel a great buy on this delicious Central Otago Pinot from Carrick in Bannockburn. Not only is it full, juicy and tasting great, it's also Organic BioGro certified.
"The 2013 Unravelled Pinot Noir shows a huge depth of fruit with a strong structure and a full mouth feel. Classic Central Otago herbs of wild thyme and cloves, and red and black fruits show in abundance on the nose for this stellar vintage. This wine enters the palate on dark cherry and blackberries that lead on and on through the mid palate. Plenty of structure, the tannin is robust, lingering long into the finish. This wine will cellar for the next 5+years." Carrick Winery

Spade Oak ‘Voysey’ Gisborne Chardonnay 2013

$15.99

Wine of the Week John Hawkesby Canvas NZ Herald
4 Stars Raymond Chan's Wine Reviews

Steve Voysey was the man responsible for the Montana O Gisborne Chardonnays and the Saints Chardonnay when they were absolute stars. Spade Oak is his label and he has continued in that proud tradition. We've all heard how good the 2013 vintage was here is more proof.
A ripe tropical nose showing yellow stonefruits, custard and toasted nuts is followed by a smooth, silky and citrusy palate. There is a nice creamy, mealy thread running through the wine and spicy peach and nectarine flavours flowing through to the finish. It has its best ahead of it, drinking now until the summer of 2017/2018.

Waipara Hills Waipara 2014 Riesling

$15.99

Best Buy Number 1 Cuisine Riesling Tasting 2015
"This is a spectacular example of New Zealand riesling. It’s like a soaring comet of pure fruit flavours, a wine of such freshness and clarity it almost doesn’t seem like wine at all. Citrus and red apple flavours are balanced by a touch of flint; the acidity is juicy and crunchy. “It has beautiful length and breadth,” noted James Rowan. “And it travels so elegantly across the palate.” This medium-dry style would be a great partner for seared scallops served with a dollop of wasabi mayonnaise."
This is super wine. Great classical sweet & sour balance with an explosion of citrus sorbet. A stunner.

Urban Uco Malbec 2012

$16.99

90/100 ‘Best Value Malbec in Argentina’ Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
"The 2012 Urban Uco Malbec spent three months in oak barrels. The bouquet is well-defined with blackberry, boysenberry, touches of dark chocolate and anise. The palate offers chunky black fruit on the entry. It is fresh, a little rough round the edges, but true to what an unadulterated Malbec should be. For this price: unbeatable."
“…best value seemed to me to be this seriously charming young Malbec. It was grown at 1,100 metres and aged in French oak barrels for just three months so it has a little structure but the sheer purity and exuberance of the fruit far outweighs any tannin at this point. It also finishes admirably dry and has far more grunt and real personality than made-to-order Argentine Malbec.”

They said...
“It's savoury, gamey and spicy with cherry and plum aromas, followed by a gently framed palate that's smooth and elegantly dry. An appealing combination of bright fruit flavours and savoury complexity.” Sam Kim
The Tempranillo grapes from 30 year old vines grown on stony clay-lime soils with a continental climate; cold winters and hot, dry summers. Fermentation was at controlled temperatures (below 28º C) in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then matured for at least six months in French and American oak barriques. Malolactic fermentation occurred. This wine is naturally fined by gravity and is therefore suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Potential Classic, Michael Cooper
5 Stars Wine Orbit

"Brilliant straw-yellow with slight golden hues. The nose is rich with densely concentrated and softly layered aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, grapefruit and considerable flinty lees and reduction elements. The componentry is very integrated, the oaking wonderfully nuanced. On palate the richness of fruit is the feature. Sure, there’s the complex reductive notes, and some toasty oak, these inputs quite powerful and intense. But it is balanced and adds to the layers and depth of flavour. This is smooth, soft and lush. The mouthfeel is lively through power, and the acidity very much in the background. Maybe a little more acid bite would bring it close to perfection? In any case, it shows even more than last time. 19.5/20, Feb 2015."Wine Orbit

69% Marsanne; 31% Viognier
"Light golden-hued yellow, the nose is rich and densely packed with positive Viognier apricot and aromatic tropical fruits, along with honeysuckle layers. On palate, very rich and unctuous in texture, the flavour expression stylishly held back. There is no shortage of richness and weight here. This has density and smooth structure. Honey and floral rather than apricot and outright exotics. This has become more expressive, the Viognier a little more apparent, but the Marsanne weight and presence which is manifest as structure, even more obvious. 18.5+/20 Feb 2015."

Beautifully interwoven detail which is intricate and refined.

5 Stars Wine Orbit

"Fabulous example of 2013 and Hawkes Bay Syrah - 95/100" Cameron Douglas MS
"Very dark, deep, purple-red colour. The nose is near decadent in richness, with well-ripened black berry fruit. I see plums, hints of boysenberries and black pepper. Black and violet florals lift the aromatics. Nuances of oak spice and complex savoury hints add detail. The palate features the very ripe fruit. Is this verging on showing some over-ripe notes? If so, it works extremely well, as there are still lovely perfumes. The extraction and structure are more a feature on the palate than last showing. The tannins are very fine-grained and powdery. Great depth, concentration and density, but with a degree of accessibility still. This will keep a decade easily. 19.0+/20 Feb 2015."

"Very dark, deep ruby-red with purple hues. The nose is up-front, quite bold with rich, ripe dark raspberry, blackberry and chocolate aromas. Some violet and dark red floral notes are intermixed with a little boysenberry and jam. Well-structured, but fleshy, the fruit sweetness and juiciness is encased by grainy tannins, and this is textured and grippy, but not overly so. Brambly flavours emerge. Robust with a sense of rusticity in mouthfeel, but the fruit is the feature in the final analysis. 18.5+/20 Feb 2015."

Palliser Estate Martinborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

$18.99

5 Stars 18.5/20. Raymond Chan's Wine Reviews. He said...
"Bright straw-yellow colour, pale on rim. This has an attractive aromatic nose with tightly bound and finely expressed gooseberry fruit with subtle passionfruit and tropical fruit notes, lifted by white florals, revealing nuances of smoke and flint. The nose has a refreshing steeliness. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, elegant and refined flavours of gooseberries, tropical fruits, lime and herbs show with a delicate juiciness and succulence. White floral and minerally, flinty detail add a layer of interest. The mouthfeel has a fine core and is dry in textural flow, with piquant acidity lending lively poise and steely cut. This is very well-balanced and harmonious, and the wine flows to a tight, mouthwatering, long lingering finish. This is an elegant and refined, tightly bound Sauvignon Blanc with aromatic fruit and a crisp, dry, thirst-quenching mouthfeel. Serve as an aperitif, with salads and vegetables and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit primarily from the ‘Palliser’ and ‘East Base’ vineyards cool-fermented, partially with indigenous yeast to 13.0% alc. and 4.3 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months on lees."

"...Moderately deep straw-yellow colour with some blush, lighter on rim. The nose is soft and gentle with good volume of ripe yellow stonefruits, pears and honey, lifted with spice notes and yellow florals, revealing a steely freshness at the core. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, gently rich and luscious flavours of yellow stonefruits and pears form a good core, the flavours unfolding exotic spices and honey elements. The fruit expression has restraint. but is enlivened by fresh acidity, and the wine flows easily along a delicately textured line. The mouthfeel is balanced and harmonious, and the wine carries to a long and sustained, aromatic finish. This is a fresh, gently rich, aromatic, medium-dry Pinot Gris with balance and linearity. Serve with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 2-3+ years."

Excellent Year in; year out. Palliser describe this wine beautifully...

This time allows autolysis of the yeast, giving nutty, toasty aromas and characters. Citrus fruits characters and hints of peaches can be seen from the Chardonnay portion of the blend, while the Pinot Noir gives richness and depth. Fine bubbles will indicate the pedigree of our Methodes. A wine for celebrations and any time." 51% Pinot Noir, 49% Chardonnay.

4 Stars Raymond Chan Wine Reviews. He said..."Pale ruby rosé colour with some depth and light purple on rim. The nose is fresh with voluminous aromas of dark cherry fruit with nuances of savoury strawberries and cream, along with a little confectionary lift and minerally lees. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features positive raspberry and cream fruit flavours alongside bitter cherry notes, lifted by confectionary elements. The fruit and sweetness fills the palate, enhanced by a slippery, racy acid mouthfeel. The wine follows a fine textural line that carries through to a crisp, lusciously juicy, slippery finish with savoury raspberry notes. This is a crisp, slippery, mouthwatering Tempranillo rosé with savoury raspberries and cream flavours. Serve with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. 100% Tempranillo spending 3 days on skins and fermented to 12.5% alc. and 8.4 g/L RS, the wine spending one month on lees."
