Gibbston Highgate Estate Dreammaker Central Otago Pinot Gris 2018 The harsh climate of Central Otago with its low fertility soils and careful viticulture has enabled production of a wine with finesse and structure, showing excellent varietal character and fruit purity.
Hawkesbridge Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017 At our blind tasting Vic gave this a Gold-medal score and said, "Crushed plums and cherries on the nose. Big fruit on the palate with perfect oak integration. A very smart mouthful of wine."
Vic Williams' Selection Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Chardonnay 2017 This single vineyard wine from a special site in the Gimblett Gravels is a collection of carefully chosen barrels, handcrafted to reflect the site and the season and Vic's own special style.
Ponder Olive Grove Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018 Lovely combo of greens and ripes - all we love about a multi-subregional blend. A third share of three fantastic sites over both valleys with a portion of barrel ferment included. Blended they create a complete, beautifully balanced and powerful wine.
Right Side Of The Tracks Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Bill Brand's Right Side of the Tracks wines are considered legendary and are Coonawarra through and through. Bill's grandfather got off the train at Coonawarra in 1902 and started work at John Riddoch's winery. The family tradition has passed down over a century of Brands and this wine does not disappoint. This Cab Sav has plum and black fruit flavours and a clean lengthy palate.
