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.

Te Mata Estate "The 2018 is one of the 2-3 finest Coleraines we have released to date."
Super Classic Status Michael Cooper
Fine Wines of New Zealand
98/100 Huon Hooke
97/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front "Magnificent"

The 2018 blend is 52% cabernet sauvignon, 33% merlot, 15% cabernet franc.
"Very deep, concentrated, bright purple/red colour. The bouquet is exquisite with a multitude of black fruits, blueberry, cassis, violet and cedar aromas, and much more besides. The detail is outstanding, as is the intensity of the palate. It’s very concentrated and powerful, firmly-structured and has tremendous persistence. The tannins are firm and abundant and will help guarantee a long life, but they are ripe and accessible and the wine is already approachable. (52% cabernet sauvignon, 33% merlot, 15% cabernet franc) 2023–2048.' Huon Hooke

"This distinguished Cabernet Sauvignon is made from ultra-premium grapes grown on twenty-one year old vines in our Mere Road Vineyard, located in the celebrated stony Gimblett Gravels district of Hawke’s Bay...
This opulent Cabernet Sauvignon, with its dark brooding presence, exudes distinctive blackcurrant character, laced with aniseed and mocha. Silky smooth tannins and ageing in quality oak contribute poise, structure and length. A distinguished wine, it is eminently enjoyable now or to greatly reward cellaring."

"The grapes for this generous wine were exclusively sourced from the stony soils of our prestigious Gimblett Gravels vineyard in Hawkes Bay, on low yielding vines. With an exceptional 2018 growing season where conditions were ideal, the fruit came off the vine in very good condition, with an average of 21.2 Brix...
A rich full bodied wine, this traditional blend exudes intense blackcurrant, blackberry and plum flavours, layered with caramel and spicy cedary oak. Ageing in quality oak has conferred a velvety smooth texture, giving this wine immediate appeal, or for judicious cellaring."

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."

Grey Ridge Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

$26.99

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.

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.

Random Shot Padthaway Shiraz 2015

$19.99

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.

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

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.
