About The Wines:

Lake Chalice Cracklin Savie Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc
Classic tropical fruits and citrus: grapefruit, orange, passionfruit, and gooseberry, with chalky minerality and hints of buttery biscuit. Bright acidity, hints of green herbs, and currant/green grape flavors make this crisp and very refreshing. Finishes with grapefruit and chalk.

2013 The Doctors Marlborough Riesling
Wow! It’s like biting into a deliciously crisp Granny Smith apple, licking lime sherbet and eating your first of the season Central Otago apricot, all at one time! Easy to drink and with the perfect balance of fruit sweetness and fresh acitidy at a modest 8.5% alcohol who feels guilty having a second glass?

2013 Seifried Estates Sauvignon Blanc
Gooseberry, nettle and snow pea characters on the nose. The palate has pure grapefruit and pear on the entry and lovely natural fruit acidity to balance fruit weight. The wine lingers with a long finish making a lasting impression.

2014 MaiMai Hawkes Bay Rose
Spring is coming and we need a Rosé to make us happy. This Rose comes from Merlot from Hawkes Bay. Good stuff. Don’t overthink it. Just drink it and grin.

2012 Carrick Unravelled Pinot Noir
Notes of herb, exotic spice, tobacco, and red fruits interlace together to form a complex aroma in the glass. This wine shows fine textured depth, the fruit and tannins provide a wonderfully balanced wine that is accessible in its youth but will continue to give generously for the next 5 years. A serious wine coming from the 1996 ‘’Le Chat’’ and 1994 “Cairnmuir” vineyard plantings

2013 MaiMai Hawkes Bay Syrah
From the Red Metal Triangle in New Zealand’s Hawkes Bay. This wine is full of delicious blackberry and plum fruits with a hint of spicy black pepper..
