Gold Hawkes Bay Wine Awards 2017
2015 was an excellent vintage in Hawkes Bay, allowing the fruit to be picked unhurried at optimal ripeness. The grapes for this superior Chardonnay were sourced from our ultra-premium vineyard site at Mere Road Vineyard...
"This outstanding Chardonnay from our superior Gimblett Gravels vineyard has striking intensity, complexity and balance. Tropical peach, fig and honey flavours abound, intertwined with hints of cashew, a judicious seasoning of toasty oak and a lovely rich creamy texture. Already delicious, it will continue to evolve and delight with cellaring." Mills Reef

Super New Release
Saint Clair Wairau Reserve 2018 Sauvignon Blanc
Super Classic Status Michael Cooper's Wine Companion
Gold NZ Aromatic Wine Show 2018
Pale straw in colour. With pungent, rich tropical blackcurrant bud and passionfruit aromas combine with notes of green nettle and oyster shell.
A generous and intense palate of white peach, passionfruit and fresh grapefruit which is powerful and concentrated. A long lingering finish which is all class reminds us of what a great wine this is.

"...lifted the wine to another level"
Mount Riley Marlborough Chardonnay 2016
4 Stars Best Buy Cuisine 2018 Chardonnay Tasting. They said...
"That distinctive struck match aroma announces that this is Chardonnay. The wine has been very well crafted as the natural fruit weight is moderate yet the use of fermentation technique and just enough oak has lifted the wine to another level."
Unbelievably yummy for the price. Close your eyes and taste something seriously good that you'd swear was much. much more expensive.

Super White in Everyone's Book
Clearview Hawkes Bay Coastal 2018 Pinot Gris
Gold New Zealand International Wine Show 2018. They said...
"Aromatic and juicy with a light creamy flow, the bright fresh fruit hints of nectarine and pear with an accent of lime with a touch of honeydew melon."
"The grapes were gently whole bunch pressed. The juice was chilled and settled until bright before racking. Aromatic yeast strains were used to inoculate the juice immediately after racking off juice lees. The ferment was run cool then stopped early to retain fruit aromas and to have some residual sugar that gives a luscious round finish. The wine was handled very gently through to bottling to capture its delicate floral flavours and aromas. Drink early for freshness or cellar several years to develop fuller viscous flavours."

The Red Bargain of 2015
Beso Chilean 2015 Merlot
If ever there was a case of the ugly duckling becoming a beautiful swan it is this wine. We promoted and sold a HUGE amount of the 2014. Shortly afterward the 2015 was released and to be frank, we were disappointed. Sweet, jubie fruit with a charming yet unconvincing structure; pleasant BUT move on twenty or so months and WOW. This is really top flight wine in the mid twenty to thirty dollar price bracket, if it came from Aotearoa. But it comes from Chile and is an absolute steal .
From its ruby colour with a splash of bright violet. To it’s a robust deep palate overflowing with a seductive mix of berry fruits and plum.
Super charming in a medium mould, ideal drinking if you’re a Merlot or deeper Pinot Noir fan. The spring and summer wonder red.

Super Sparkling Buy
Matahiwi Blanc du Blanc NV
Silver Global Sparkling Wine Masters by the Drinks Business
Silver Global Chardonnay Wine Masters by the Drinks Business
“I love the melon and nectarine notes and the deliciously fine bubbles. Lemon and peach flavours ooze through to something deliciously dry and fruity - it's a nicely structured sparkling wine crafted by Jane Cooper and her team at Matahiwi Estate. It's a sip that hits the spot in every way and has "celebration" written all over it.” Yvonne Lorkin

Yalumba Patchwork Barossa Shiraz 2016
5 Stars Wine Orbit
4 stars 18/20 Raymond Chan Wine Reviews. He says:
“..The nose is softly rich and full with ripe fruit aromas of blackberries and dark raspberries, along with nuances of black plums, unfolding spice elements with black pepper, tar and minerals. Medium-full bodied, the palate has an elegantly proportioned palate with rich and deep flavours of ripe blackberry and plum fruit with liquorice, black pepper and tar. The flavours form a strong heart which reveals complexing earth and mineral detail as the wine flows. The fruit is supported by balanced, grainy tannin extraction and grip, with fresh acidity lending vitality. The wine leads to a long, soft, nuanced finish. This is a rich and concentrated Shiraz with ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit along with liquorice, pepper and tar on a grainy textured palate...”

Brilliant Buy Bye Bye
Beso Reserva 2014 Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon
A complex bouquet shows cassis, dark plum, mixed spice and cigar box aromas. Stylish and intense with liquorice and vanilla.
Plump and rounded on the palate. Fabulous fruit flavours, beautifully enhanced by silky texture and supple tannins. Very concentrated and full bodied with supple and the mouth filling tannins give this Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon a great power and length.
If this wine came from Hawkes Bay or Waiheke Island you would expect to buy its original retail price and you would be very happy.
Will cellar for up to twelve years.
