Martinborough Vineyards Chardonnay
Our Martinborough Vineyard Chardonnay is often described as a Chardonnay lover’s Chardonnay. Aromas of tropical fruit intertwine with notes of citrus, toast and popcorn that bring to mind the characteristics of great Chardonnay. Careful use of new oak has created a wine that is finely grained and focussed yet shows power and depth of flavour and a lovely mineral core. Our winemaking style focuses on producing a rich, complex and full bodied Chardonnay that remains balanced and elegant. This wine is drinking well in its youth but will reward those who have the patience to cellar it.

Clearview Coastal Chardonnay 2017
An easy drinking style, showing aromatic up-front fruit with good length and texture. This is a fruit driven wine with glycerol viscosity giving a weighty mouth feel. Our light and fruity chardonnay style with a touch of oak is hugely popular and an ideal anytime wine.
Previously named Te Awanga Chardonnay, to honour our unique coastal location we have changed the wine’s name to Coastal Chardonnay.
CHARLES WIFFEN CHARDONNAY 2015
This wine has aromas of fig, rock melon and nectarine with hints of vanilla. Ten months in a mix of new and seasoned French Oak gives a balanced and elegant palate with a soft lingering nutty finish.
Marisco The King's Bastard 2017
A perfumed bouquet of citrus, ripe fig and melon. A hint of cashew with some subtle spicy oak adds further interest.
Grapefruit and citrus zest are balanced by some riper flavours of nectarine, melon and fig. The mid palate is rich and creamy, with nuts and spice adding complexity. Lovely fresh acidity on the finish keeps the wine focused and pure.
Roaring Meg Pinot Gris 2017
This wine has aromatics reminiscent of a fruit cocktail full of stonefruit, melon and green mango. These characters are richly replicated on the palate, with a full textured mid palate and an off-dry finish.
Roaring Meg Central Otago Pinot Gris is optimal drinking from release to four years of age.

Jules Taylor Sauvignon Blanc 2018
This wine has a delightful light yellow tinged with green colouring. Aromas of passionfruit, citrus, currants and Eilderflower spill out of the glass. On its wonderfully rich palate grapefruit flavours again come to the fore. It has a lingering intensity that is very mouth filling, rolling out to a dry finish - a distinct example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
Forrest Estate The Doctors Riesling 2015
Now assuming cult status in the New Zealand wine scene the Doctors’ Riesling continues to amaze wine critics and novices alike. Grown on our stony Condors bend vineyard at Renwick the fruit ripens slowly, in Marlborough’s cool dry autumn climate, gaining flavour intensity yet retaining all important acidity. Harvested early at low sugars the grapes are gently pressed, cold settled and given a cool slow fermentation which was arrested around 8.5% alcohol and 42g/l residual sugar. The final decision on when to stop the wine fermentation is very much decided on acid/sugar balance....more »
