Valldosera Brut Nature Cava

Incredible life and vibrancy in this Cava. Terrific balance and a pleasant nervy tension that permeates the palate. Salty and savory and just the right amount of sweetness to keep the wine balanced and approachable. Very keenly crafted.

2013 Lenz Moser Prestige Grüner Veltliner

Straw color. Bright aromas and flavors of guava, grapefruit, watermelon rind, and white pepper with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a long, flavor packed finish. A great fruit driven gruner that is amazingly versatile.

<h2> 2013 Weingut Bründlmayer Zöbinger Heiligenstein Riesling </h2>

2013 Weingut Bründlmayer Zöbinger Heiligenstein Riesling

Bründlmayer keeps on producing three different Rieslings from the Heiligenstein Erste Lage where the family holds 12 hectares in the center of the most famous Riesling cru of the Kamptal. The steel-fermented 2013 Riesling Heiligenstein Erste Lage is the most classic wine of the Heiligenstein trio which I personally prefer to the bigger colleagues Alte Reben and Lyra (at least in the first years after bottling). The citrus colored wine is clear and fresh on the nose, displaying aromas of ripe apples, limes, oranges, spices as well as earthy, sandstone flavors. Medium-bodied, fresh and mineral, this Riesling shows well-concentrated fruit and a firm structure with great tension through a long finish with lingering aromas of white peaches. This is an excellent wine with a good grip and an Austrian Riesling classic.

2007 Ochoa Reserva Navarra Single Vineyards

Still youthful, this 2007 has plenty of freshness in its red fruit flavors. It's juicy with vibrant acidity, showing some development in the complex spicy notes on the finish.

<h2> 2011 Stella Bella Skuttlebutt Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz </h2>

2011 Stella Bella Skuttlebutt Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

This Australian blend of Cabernet and Shiraz is a real palate-grabber! Fleshy black plum, minty aromas in this red wine wonder. Walk down this tunnel of sensory pleasure ... brush your taste buds against the walls of caressing black fruit flavour. Smooth, deep, rich. This is definitely a Margaret River Shiraz Cabernet worth trying, not just for the cool climate nuances but also for the rich layers of black fruit and dark spice. Pair with prime rib [or] meat lovers pizza. Drink: [Now]-2018.

2013 Reinhold Haart Haart to Heart Piesport Riesling

'Certainly this is the best estate in Piesport' (The Underground Wine Journal). Off-dry with aromas and flavours of sweet apple, salt and wet stone, this is quality Riesling that doesn't take itself too seriously. Enjoy it with spicy sausages or sushi.

<h2>2010 Stella Bella Isca Cabernet Merlot </h2>

2010 Stella Bella Isca Cabernet Merlot

The Margaret River region is blessed with a combination of high levels of sunshine and the moderating influence of the Indian Ocean, factors that combine to produce wines of great depth and freshness. Cabernet Sauvignon is the region's star variety, and when combined with its Bordeaux counterpart, Merlot, the results are stunning. The 2010 Stella Bella is balanced, long and structured, with ripe black cherry notes and vanilla accents.

<h2>2004 Heredad de Baroja Gran Reserva </h2>

2004 Heredad de Baroja Gran Reserva

At ten years of age, the 2004 Gran Reserva is drinking beautifully. Dark red currant in colour with a touch of garnet, the wine presents very lovely, traditionally styled aromas of 'meaty' granola-oriented red plums, sour cherries, American oak, vanilla, and spice. Complex, boasting great fruit, firm tannins, balanced acidity, and a delicious hint of savoury cherries and American oak on the finish. Excellent harmony, elegance, and character. Now-2020+.

2014 Monte Zovo Bardolino Chiaretto

Delightful aromas of apricot, red plum and sour cherry introduce this pale-peach-coloured wine. Racy acidity lends tart and tangy suggestions of grapefruit and white cranberry on the palate. A lovely little refresher at a friendly price.

<h2> 2013 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett</h2>

2013 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett

From one of the Mosel's most famous vineyard sites, this light riesling is currently a bit closed on the nose with apple/peach fruit, petrol and slate aromas. It's slim, off-dry and racy on the palate with mouth watering lemon-lime acidity and Mosel stoniness. Excellent length. An archtypical Mosel riesling that should age 10 years despite its apparent translucence and delicacy.

2013 San Michele A Torri Chianti Colli Fiorentini

Aromas of chocolate cherry, red roses, hickory and dried herbs make for a very charming nose. The palate is ripe and fruity, with subtle herbal and spicy undertones. This will make a lovely pairing for tomato-based pastas, or grilled herbed steaks.

<h2> 2012 Champy Signature Bourgogne Chardonnay </h2>

2012 Champy Signature Bourgogne Chardonnay

This wine offers a texture that is smooth and full, with impeccable wood presence which reveals notes of dried fruit; quite present minerality; fine nutty, saline qualities on the finish.

"This is a generous, mid-weight fresh young Burgundy with generous oak that creates a slightly perfumed note amid the poached pear, peach pit peat smoke and vanillin. It's mid-weight with very firm acidity. Really quite generous and well structured Burgundy for the price. Stony and lemony on the finish; very good to excellent length and good value." - David Lawrason, 90 points.

<h2> 2014 Matetic Corralillo Sauvignon Blanc </h2>

2014 Matetic Corralillo Sauvignon Blanc

<h2> 2013 Elephant Hill Pinot Noir </h2>

2013 Elephant Hill Pinot Noir

They say elephants never forget - not sure how they test such things, but we're certain you'll never forget this magnificent creature. Violet, cherry, vanilla, beetroot, smoke, and spice notes on the trunk, sorry - on the nose. The palate is fruity and chewy with nicely framing tannins that add significant structure. Notes of fresh herbs mingling in with the floral and smoky notes. A nice, long and spicy finish.

Elephant Hill is based in Hawkes Bay on the North Island but has gone to the warmer Tarras (Bendigo) and Alexandra sub-regions of Central Otago for this bright, fruit driven young 2013 pinot. Expect lifted juicy, floral cherry/blackberry fruit aromas, with gentle oak and thyme. It's mid-weight, firm and fresh with some minerality on the finish. Quite tight and tannic as are many 2013's at the moment. Not as beefy as some Otago pinots from this area." David Lawrason, 90 points.

<h2> 2014 Sugar Loaf Sauvignon Blanc </h2>

2014 Sugar Loaf Sauvignon Blanc

Really embracing the tropical side of Malborough Savvy, this wine shows ripe guava and passion fruit along with subtle notions of steamed garden veggies. It's juicy and refreshing from start to finish, with some nice oomph to the texture.

"A superbly elegant sauvignon blanc that is nicely representative of the best and most balanced examples from Marlborough. White pepper, freesia and ginger make up the alluring nose. The palate provides ample refreshment with notes of cucumber, lemon, and white grapefruit. There is a great deal of charm, pep and energy here. Characteristic flavours of grass and deliciously tart gooseberry linger on the finish." 90 points, Sara d'Amato

<h2> 2008 Lenz Moser Prestige Trockenbeerenauslese  </h2>

<h2> Elephant Hill Syrah </h2>

Elephant Hill Syrah

Displaying typical Syrah characters of blackberry and spice the wine stands out for its elegance and balance with soft, well integrated tannins and a long finish. With the correct vineyard and winery practices this wine also shows the versatility of Syrah in Hawke’s Bay in that it can produce quality wine in a cool as well as a warm vintage.

"The 2013 vintage is one of the best yet for New Zealand reds, including Hawkes Bay. This shows impressively deep purple black colour. This nose is lifted and ripe with black cherry, vanillin, classic syrah smoked meat and pepper. It's mid-weight fairly dense yet firm and tannic, with slightly tart acidity. Very good length with tobacco and earthy notes." 89 points, David Lawrason.

<h2> Airfield Estates Runway Cabernet Sauvignon </h2>

Airfield Estates Runway Cabernet Sauvignon

This classically styled Cabernet Sauvignon showcases pronounced aromas of blackcurrant with undertones of toasted oak and tea leaf.

This wine is an excellent accompaniment to a wide array of fare.

<h2> 2009 Gehringer Brothers Private Reserve Pinot Gris </h2>

2009 Gehringer Brothers Private Reserve Pinot Gris

British Columbia, Canada

The juice of this wine is given short skin contact, thus the slight pink tinge. The contact also deepens the aroma profile. The wine offers notes of white peach, grapefruit, citrus and even a hint of honey. Dry and quite fresh, this zippy, intriguing wine is a fine palate-refresher, or match it to grilled calamari.

<h2> 2012 Matetic EQ San Antonio Valley Pinot Noir </h2>

2012 Matetic EQ San Antonio Valley Pinot Noir

San Antonio Valley, Chile

The destemmed grapes for the 2012 EQ Pinot Noir fermented in open inox vats with punching down, with indigenous yeasts, and the wine was aged for 14 months in a mixture of French oak barrels, making for a serious, attractive nose of sour cherries, blood oranges and a medium-bodied palate with good freshness and balance, clean, delineated flavors and a tasty, and dare I say it, mineral feeling. Great Pinot. Drink now through 2017.
