Only Six Made it to Our Shores
Yalumba The Caley 2012 Magnum
In a stunning wooden presentation case
One only Magnum of the First Vintage Ever of this wine, only six made it to our shores.
79% Cabernet Sauvignon & 21% Shiraz
The critics:
96+/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
5 Stars & 20/20 Raymond Chan
5 Stars & 100/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
94+/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
98/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion. He said...
"52% Coonawarra cabernet, 27% Barossa cabernet and 21% Barossa shiraz, open-fermented with wild yeast (three days) then cultured yeast. Bright, deep crimson-purple; the bouquet instantly semaphores a glorious profusion of cassis, blackberry and black cherry fruits, flavours which are precisely mirrored by the palate. But it's the way this beautiful wine caresses the mouth that is so special, the tannins polished, the oak judged to perfection."
"This is the first vintage of Yalumba’s new Cabernet/Shiraz-based flagship wine. Deep garnet in colour, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz The Caley offers expressive baked blackberries, cherry cordial and blackcurrant jelly notes with suggestions of Chinese five spice, cedar and anise. The palate is built like a brick house, delivering a solid structure of firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness to support and complement the voluptuous, full-bodied flesh. It offers a very long, layered finish with lingering exotic spice and black berry preserves notes. Give it 3-5 more years in bottle and drink it over the next twenty-five." Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

Langmeil Pure Eden Valley Shiraz 2015
A cellar door only wine rarely available in New Zealand
98 points Top Australian Red Australian Wine Gourmet Traveller August/September 2018. They said...
"The colour is dense and profound; the aroma is initially toasty oak then mocha, chocolate, fruit-cake, raspberry with spices, tar and graphite also chiming in. there’s lot of very fine, supple tannins and a massive body. Very Eden Valley; very opulent and hedonistic."

End of vintage Clear Out Tin Cottage Marlborough 2017 Sauvignon Blanc
This wine has been our most popular best value for money Sauvignon Blanc over the last 11 months. This is the last of it and we are giving the fans of this little beauty until the end of the month to get this wine at this very silly price.
Classical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc: passionfruit, capsicum and tropical fruit with lovely racy acidity. Very moreish.

Gold Organic Wine Awards 2018
"Bright, light golden yellow colour, lighter on the edge. This has a full and gently concentrated, deeply packed nose with fresh, ripe yellow stonefruits and tropical fruits along with citrus fruit elements entwined with creamy barrel-ferment, and nutty, toasty oak...

Last Chance on Greatness
Yalumba FDR1A Cabernet Shiraz 2013
96 Points 5 Stars James Halliday's Wine Companion 2019....
"There's a spread of this wine that is beyond the norm. It hits and flows, in a satisfying way, but when it hits what might be the finish it fans out impressively. The extra kick of flavour - you could simply call it 'quality'- that we're all hoping for but rarely receive; it's on beautiful display here..."
We have said how good this wine is. Get in quick as we have very little left.

Marlborough Giants Hit Gimblett
Saint Clair Block 17 Plateau Gimblett Merlot 2016
Trophy & Gold Royal Easter Show 2018
Silver AIR New Zealand Wine Awards 2017
Very dense, ruby colour with dense aromas of black-fruits, dark chocolate and rich ripe red plums.
The palate is concentrated, rich and full bodied. Layers of ripe dark berries, black Doris plums and dark chocolate coat the mouth then lead to a silky smooth texture with a long sustained finish.
Great now with cellaring potential of 4 years plus.

Strike Otago Gold
Greylands Ridge Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014
Gold Air New Zealand Wine Show 2015
18+/20 4 Stars Raymond Chan Wine Reviews. He said...
"Moderately deep, dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on rim...Nuances of thyme herbs, spicy, nutty oak and violet perfumes add detail and interest. Medium-bodied, softly rich and well-concentrated flavours of ripe dark raspberries and plums are complexed by nuances of thyme herb, spices and oak...This is a rich and softly concentrated Pinot Noir with balance and structure. Match with beef, lamb, venison and semi-hard cheeses over the next 6+ years..."

Like a Video Game; Tastes Great
Gran Tesoro Campo de Borja Spain Garnacha 2014
Return of the Little Charmer
A lovely Spanish Garnacha (Grenache) that has body and charm to burn. There is real palate weight and character in this wine. Juicy deep, red brambly fruit, plum and berry. Sweet and mouthfilling spice with a long smooth and enticing pallet with a great long finish. Soft and very approachable.

A Wonderful Regional Mix
Pencarrow Martinborough Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2017
5 Stars 18.5/20 Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
"Bright straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues... The nose is firm with well-packed aromas of white stonefruits, tropical and citrus fruits harmoniously entwined with nutty and reductive flinty complexities... The mouthfeel is rounded and the flavours form a fine-textured, firm core with good alcoholic drive and underlying fresh acidity...This is a well-concentrated, up-front Chardonnay with stonefruit, citrus fruit and tropical fruit flavours intermixed with nutty and toasty oak with flinty detail. Match with barbecued and grilled poultry and pork dishes over the next 4 years..."
