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.

Linden Estate Esk Valley Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2012


4 Stars Raymond Chan Wine Reviews. He said...
"Moderately deep, light golden-yellow colour, lighter edged. This has a full and well-concentrated, densely packed bouquet of savoury yellow stonefruit complexed by notes of gunflint lees, smoky and toasty oak, nuts and some reductive elements. Medium-bodied, the palate is soft and gently mouthfilling with flavours of savoury yellow stonefruits harmoniously melded with waves of flinty lees, nuts and toasty oak. The wine is fulsome and rounded, now showing some secondary development and integration, the savoury flavours growing in breadth and openness. Good acid liveliness underlines the palate flow and the wine carries smoothly to a full, flavoursome, nutty and toasty finish. This is a full and harmoniously integrated Chardonnay with mouthfilling breadth and savoury, secondary, toasty development...and barrel-fermented...Apr 2015 RRP $25.00."
We love Raymond's reference to toasty as that character and its smooth flowing palate make this wine an absolute bargain from now until mid-2016.

This wine has got better and better and better. Tight and almost elusive on release. It has blossomed in the bottle to a real darling: full generous and morish. Another Sauvignon Blanc from the brilliant 2013 vintage that has not only improved; when you try it you'd swear it was much, much younger.
‘This is classic Marlborough Sauvignon: grassy and pungent, with tangy acidity and exceptional persistence of flavour and length. The Whitehaven has been consistent through the years and this vintage is just another in a long line of successful vintage. With mouth-watering red citrus and gooseberry aromas, it's also one of the more complex Kiwi Sauvignons you will find. Platinum award winner at Critics Challenge International Wine Competition.’ Robert Whitley

Forrest The Doctors 2013 Marlborough Riesling


Gold Medal Spiegelau International Wine Competition 2014
Silver Medal Easter Show 2013
5 Stars Raymond Chan Wine Reviews.
He said...
"Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on rim. The bouquet is delicate and refined with pure lime and lemon fruit aromas offering a citrus tang, along with harmoniously melded minerals and mouthwatering chalky, saline elements. Medium in sweetness and light-bodied, subtly lich rime and lemon fruit flavours show a delicate succulence, with clear-cut purity. The palate is very fine and softly textures with thirst-quenching mineral undertones and very fine acidity at the core. The mouthfeel is very smooth and tight, flowing seamlessly, revealing honeysuckle nuances. The flavours and nuances blossom on the long and sustained, chalky-minerally finish. This is a soft, refined and tightly bound medium Riesling with delicacy, poise and mouthwatering minerality. Serve as an aperitif, with subtle seafood and fine Asian fare. It will develop well and with greater interest over the next 5-6+ years."
A release of a classic with age on it. One of the best Rieslings in the land from one of the very best vintages ever.

Beach House Track Gimblett Gravels Chardonnay 2013


Silver Medal NZ International Wine Show 2014
Silver Medal AIR NZ Wine Awards 2014

Lifted floral notes on the nose are underpinned by white fleshed peach and it has a distinct minerality expressing the Gimblett Gravels from which it came. It is finely textured with a beautiful fresh acidity. This powerful wine shows with its balance and elegance the class that only the top chardonnays possess. Big, bold and brilliant.
This is grown at their Gimblett Gravels vineyard on Mere Road and is 100% Clone 95. The grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. The wine went through malo-lactic fermentation and was left in barrel for 10 months where it was stirred weekly.

Cracroft Chase Canterbury Grey Pearl Pinot Gris 2011


Alex and Wilma Laryn immigrated from Italy in 1996, and established Cracroft Chase Vineyard in Christchurch soon after. Situated in Cashmere at the foot of the Port Hills they produce some wonderful Pinot Gris. Grey Pearl is made in an appealingly crisp and dry Pinot Grigio style with a lovely textured mouthfeel and lengthy finish. It's super food-friendly and well worth cellaring for a year or two more.
A real dry Pinot Gris with bottle age and heaps of charm.

Chocolate Box Shiraz from Rocland Estate in the Barossa Valley has a huge following. Fantastically packaged with a whimsical retro label, it's what's in the bottle that really gets everybody excited. This is big, bold Barossa Shiraz with rich dark fruit and chocolate flavours, all wrapped up in a decadently round and somewhat fulsome mouthfeel. Completely satisfying.

La Petite Robe Rouge 2012 Cote du Rhone


Wine Weekend:The little dress red - 2012
Julie Chirwa September 23, 2014 Weekend wines
. She Says..
'A heady whirl! Her ravishing red vermilion dress hides a nectar intense and charming. He sees the day on famous Provencal lands which give the spellbinding and evocative of fun aromas. South of the Rhône Valley, in the Vaucluse, flourish across the old vines of Grenache and Syrah, which will be gathered together beautifully in this lovely sunny wine.
After a careful breeding tank about 7 months, he is ready to reveal all its aromas! The nose is so generous and gourmand, the ripe fruit, licorice, and subtle hints of cocoa. Mouth, round and well designed, opens smoothly on a fine and slender touch and voluptuous tannins.
This vintage, delicate and refreshing will accompany divinely thin lamb chops sprinkled thyme or herbs de Provence."

The 2009 was a real hit. The 2010 comes from a 7/7 vintage on Waiheke Island. It's big brother received a 98/100 review from Bob Campbell MW and sold out very quickly.
18/20 Raymond Chan Wine reviews. He said...
"...48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 10% new French oak, the remainder seasoned French barrels with some American oak. Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with garnet hues on rim. The bouquet is full, robust and densely packed with aromas of savoury blackcurrant and plum fruit, harmoniously intermixed with savoury earth and leather complexities that unfold in layers of interest. Fullish-bodied, softly concentrated flavours of plush and rich dark plum fruits, earth and dark herbs show some secondary development with leathery and dustiness. The mouthfeel is fulsome and solid with plenty of tannin structure and underlying alcohol power. As the wine flows, the textures build and lead to a dry, firm finish. This is a solid and well-structured Cabernet/Merlot with complexing secondary development..."

Torre Del Falasco DOC Bardolino 2012


This wine is marked by its violet and blackcurrant nose, shy, persistent smooth palate and long aftertaste. Classically Italian and highly drinkable.
In terms of palate weight think merlot, fuller Pinot Noir or medium bodied Syrah.
Bardolino is the style of wine grown closest to Lake Garda. Corvina and Rondinella grapes are used in this wine and grown in the micro climate of the East side of Lake Garda, Italy. These grapes are the same as used in Valpolicella.

De La Terre Reserve Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2013


5 Stars Raymond Chan Wine Reviews He said...
"Clone 95 fruit from the ‘HCE’ vineyard, hand-picked, WBP, 40% indigenous yeast, fully barrel-fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 40% new French oak barriques with batonnage and 40% MLF. Full, moderately deep, light golden-yellow colour, paler on the rim. This has a very full, broad and voluminous bouquet of ripe tropical and citrus fruits melded with nutty oak and sweet barrel-ferment notes. The aromatics are bold, deep and concentrated. Medium-full bodied, mouthfilling flavours of ripe citrus fruit form a rich amalgam, layered with sweet, nutty oak and creamy elements. The wine is open and accessible, and rounded in texture, flowing smoothly and harmoniously with underlying alcoholic power. Fine-grained phenolic textures and fresh acidity balance the richness, providing an underlying line and vitality that carries the wine to a strong, long and sustained finish. This is a mouthfilling, accessible, lively Chardonnay with ripe citrussy fruit and nutty oak, and plenty of power. Serve with pork, veal and most white meat dishes over the next 4-5 years. 1,465 bottles."

Beach House Selection Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2014


A new label and a new release for Beach House with the same excellent high standards. This wine is a ripper, think the best of previous vintages. It is fleshy and smooth with well rounded ripe stonefruit flavours. Toasty and creamy notes add complexity. Rich and harmonious a wine to saviour now or to cellar for up to 4 years. It is a steal
2014 was an excellent season for white wine in the Hawkes Bay; this wine is proof.

"It is elegantly fragrant on the nose displaying white nectarine and rock melon characters with subtle vanilla and cedar complexity.

At a recent tasting this wine just blew us away. Here we have the hallmarks of the perfect all-rounder. Juicy, lovely oak, super balance and a price tag that is laughable for the quality. This wine absolutely leaves many wines in the late teens to mid-twenties price points in the dust. Exceptional.
"The Stratum 2014 Chardonnay shows ripe pear and spice aromatics with a hint of oak, leading on to a full flavoured and balanced palate. A wine to be enjoyed on most occasions." Winery

"Bright, very pale straw-green colour, near colourless on rim. The nose is softly full and voluminous with aromas of ripe, pungent passionfruit and tropical fruits, harmoniously presented, building with depth. Dry to taste and light-bodied, the palate features soft and gentle, grainy textures encasing up-front passionfruit flavours infused with mineral notes. The palate has restrained, but lush and juicy acidity underlining the phenolic line, and the flavours flow to a dry, mouthwatering finish with soft, lingering minerally nuances. This is a thirst-quenching, up-front and soft textured Sauvignon Blanc with pungent passionfruit flavours. Match with Asian fare and vegetable dishes over the next 2 years. Made from fruit especially managed for the lower alcohol style, fermented to 9.5% alc."

The varietal mix was 44% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc and Malbec.
Deeply coloured with a blue purple hue. Aromatic characters of dark plum, cassis and spice lead through into the elegant yet powerful palate.
