Hawkesbridge Reserve Marlborough Pinot Gris 2017
This wowed the Tasting Panel as soon as the bottle was opened and quickly made the Wine of the Year Finalist list. It has classic super-ripe pear and baked apple aromas are backed by an intriguing suggestion of spicy shortbread. It has been made just off-dry, but there is an impressive amount of fruit concentration on the palate along with the variety's typically complex, oily texture. It's destined for greatness.
Riversdale Estate Crater Tasmania Chardonnay 2014
The Riversdale Crater Chardonnay is a super-premium wine from a much feted boutique producer. The Riversdale Chardonnay is one of the most consistently awarded Chardonnays in Tasmania, and this new release is every bit as good as its predecessors. It is bursting with white peach and citrus flavours, and boasts a tight acid line on the lingering finish.
Whitehaven Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017
This wine is the epitome of great Marlborough Savvy and the perfect accompaniment to summer salads, poultry and shellfish, such as Marlborough's famous greenlipped mussels. It's no wonder that Wine & Spirits declared it the Most Poured By The Glass NZ Wine.
