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.

Yalumba Y Series Tempranillo 2019

$13.99

We have been HUGE fans of this wine since the very first vintage. Personally I rate it as one of the most accessible and drinkable Tempranillo on the market.
We flew the flag for the 2018 edition way before its NWWA Trophy, you agreed, as it flew out the door. We introduce the Yummy 2019 Vintage. We'll leave it to the winery to tell you all the important stuff...
"Tempranillo is an early ripening variety, ‘temprano’ being the word for early in Spain. The grapes are typically harvested before any other red varieties…Bright crimson in colour. Enticing aromas of blackberry , sweet spice and chocolate covered cherries. The palate displays flavours of raspberry and rhubarb in this vibrant and juicy wine, finishing with classic Tempranillo tannins. Enjoy with french lamb cutlets or roast beetroot and cumin dip with pita crisps." The Winery

Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2018

$13.99

Trophy for Champion Shiraz New World Wine Awards 2019
5 Stars 93/100 Sam Kim Wine Orbit
Gold 96/100 NWWA 2019

"The practice of adding the white grape, Viognier, to Shiraz started in the Northern Rhone region of France, where it was found to add a floral note to the wine and make the mouthfeel more rounded and soft. This wine shows how well the idea worked and why it was adopted in Australia. Viognier has been added to the Shiraz flavour, creating a dark rich black and blueberry intensity with underlying floral and oak characters. This is our Champion Shiraz and it’s easy to see why." NWWA
The NWWA wine show is for wines under $25.00, for a wine at this price to win the Trophy for Best Shiraz with the calibre of excellent judges is incredible. Incredible in a very good way.

5 Stars 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2019 (2019 Vintage).
He said...
"Offering excellent fruit purity and poise, the wine shows white flesh nectarine, apricot, subtle spice and floral aromas on the nose, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that is texturally delightful and tasty. Wonderfully harmonious and lingering. At its best: now to 2022."
"It’s an incredibly attractive nose of fresh apricots and white flowers, no voice louder than the other. It’s more skewed towards apricot on the palate, though balanced and demanding another sip. A lovely young white wine. Needs food to show its true credentials."

5 Stars 94/100 Wine Orbit. They said...
"The wine offers seductive complexity and engaging flavours; the beautifully lifted bouquet shows ripe stone fruit, baked apple, brioche and cedar characters with a hint of fragrant spice. It is concentrated and focused on the palate, displaying excellent depth and intensity backed by silky texture and well-pitched acidity, finishing long and expansive."
Always Great Chardonnay and better for a bit of time in the bottle. From a Great Year.

The Willows Barossa Shiraz 2015

$33.99

94 points Sam Kim Wine Orbit
93 points James Halliday Wine Companion

Known to be a wine that gets better with age this little stunner has entered the phase of being a beautiful swan after starting life as an awkward duckling.
We’d go as far as to say that it should be double its price it’s that good. We have the last of the 2015 vintage and not much of it. It is a wine not to be missed.
Dense, vibrant colour is a feature of this brooding beauty, along with ripe, sweet fruit, reminiscent of plum, blackberry and pepper on the nose. Two years maturation in American and French Oak hogshead barrels has enhanced and complimented the robust fleshy fruit. The palate is generous, ripe and mouth filling exhibiting berry and cinnamon spice flavours, along with oak-derived mocha overtones and harmonious, soft, yet defined tannins.

“..Medium-bodied, the palate is rounded and fulsome with mouthfilling flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits and tropical fruits entwined with layers of nutty oak and lees. This unfolds creamy barrel-ferment elements and MLF detail, and the wine shows some underlying power with plenty of drive, the soft acidity enhancing he palate richness. …” – Raymond Chan

Great new release from a wine that has a record that is simply brilliant. Year in; year out. A point must be made here that 2018 was a Top vintage in the Clare Valley. This magical wine gets a multitude of Golds and or 5 Star reviews.
Loaded with lime and lemon sorbet, backed up by racy acid. This delightfully crisp and intensely flavoursome Riesling will not disappoint for those who like their Riesling dry and moreish.

A Henry's Pic Top Buy
One of our best-selling dessert wines in a very long time. Not only is it great to drink it must be the best Sticky deal in years and years and years.
A long and arduous fermentation has given rise to a very tasty sticky indeed. Flavours of orange blossom, ripe pineapple and citrus rind overwhelm the senses. The wine is honeyed and mellifluous across the palate flowing pleasantly to a silky soft finish.

“Champagne Ayala was founded by Edmond de Ayala in 1860 and purchased by Champagne Bollinger in 2005, with the aim of re-establishing it as the grande marque (great champagne house) it was once known as. It’s wines are limited in production and therefore less well – known than bigger names, but the quality is high. It is fresh, dry (drier than most champagnes) and full-bullied with vibrant citrus and yeasty flavours. 18.5/20
Over the last 10 or so years this great dry Champagne has appeared in Multiple 5 Star reviews. Wine Spectators Top 100, Best in Class and Gold at many wines shows including our own NZ International Wine Show.

$15.99

A favourite since our first delivery in October. In fact it has sold out very quickly every time.
Handpicked fruit with a very gentle whole bunch pressing of the fruit. This Merlot and just a splash of Montepulciano (just 2%) which Beach House felt "made all the difference to the nose and palate, whilst generating the most magical pink colour."
Lovely floral and rose petals on the nose with bursts of fresh and dried strawberries, The palate is soft and fresh with a delectable dry finish that makes this a winner all year long.
Brilliant. New packaging. Stunning Wine.

Silver Medal Bragato Wine Competition
Small production, so not a regular on the show circuit. We cannot recommend this stunner enough.
Since first promoting this wine 4 months ago its popularity has soared. Once tried its irresistible charmers have won over so so many.
At this amazing price it sits in the same price bracket as the supermarket main stays: Roaring Meg, Rua and Devils Staircase all instantly come to mind. In our opinion it leaves them in the dust.
Medium in colour, with a nose of cherry ripeness which leads to a beautifully balanced palate which seduces and charms. Classical Central Otago Pinot Noir.
Perfect at this time of the year. This wine is charging out the door.

Random Shot Padthaway Shiraz 2015

Silver Medal NZ International Wine Show 2018.
When this wine received its Silver Medal at the end of 2018 it was drinking well. Now it is drinking superbly. For the lovers of the Jip Jip Rocks and Morambro Creek Shiraz this wine is a must try. Deep and inky with a savoury twist that only the best from Padthaway seems to exhibit. Leather, tobacco, dark mocha chocolate and deep black berryfruit are all there on the nose and the palate. This wine will be superb drinking over the next four or five years. It comes from a 9/10 Padthaway vintage. Its star is just starting to shine.
