This elegant salmon pink Rosé immediately presents luscious strawberries and cream on the nose. Those bright berries, meet with stonefruit on the palate with a medium dry finish. Best served chilled, this is a perfect ‘snacking wine’ – ie: quaff on the terrace with a platter of delicious savoury treats from your local deli.
The colour hits us first, a vibrant rose gold colour that gives away the skin contact factor of our Pinot Gris. Pinot Gris is a variety that can have both white and red grapes in a bunch, giving our wine some skin contact makes the brilliant colour. Fortunately, this also helps with aromas and delivers lifted honeysuckle, dew drop melons and a light vanilla marshmallow, like a summer stone fruit cocktail from the pool bar in most Fiji resorts. Delicate ripe peach flavours and a hint of Nashi develop on the palate and the zingy spice like Auntie May’s sweet fruit cobbler adds a mouthfeel and weight to balance it all out leaving your mouth just salivating enough to want more.
Fresh, zesty, juicy and full, this fruit driven new world style wine will excite the senses without the racy overload. Tropical fruit with a fresh herbaceous character balanced with zesty passionfruit and a dry finish, this wine will take you straight back to the warmer summer days.
Always sensational with fresh Marlborough seafood, or try with West Coast whitebait fritters.

A powerful wine with passion fruit, citrus and herbs on the nose. Maturation in old French oak barrels and regular battonage creates complexity and creaminess balanced with typical Marlborough acidity.
Red cherry colour with ruby hints in the glass. Intense aromas of red matured fruits as well as notes of sweet spice from the oak maturation. Well balanced on the palate, very persistent and elegant finish.
Aromas of butterscotch and pecan crumble over white flesh nectarines and the freshness of a pineapple Fruju down by the Wairau River in the summertime. Add in the smokey overtones and a creaminess that layers over the lingering pineapple backed up by the heirloom grapefruit fresh from the backyard. These characters all combine their unique acid profiles that blend to give this Marlborough Chardonnay its unique fruit forward freshness, yet still, speak to its classical French inspiration.
Definitely one we would share with anything from grilled crispy skin salmon, wood roasted rotisserie chicken or even a slow cooked BBQ rolled pork roast.
100 % Tempranillo aged in American oak for 2 years. Ripe cherry-red colour with a ruby edge, good depth of colour. On the nose it is notable for its fragrance and complexity, with aromas of red and black fruit (blackcurrant and blackberry) together with notes of cedar and mild toasty hints.
Musar Jeune Red is an unoaked blend of Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon from youthful Bekaa Valley vines. Meant for current consumption – within a few years of the harvest – this deeply-coloured, vividly fruity style, first produced in 2007, may yet prove to be a ‘keeper’. Inky-dark, silky-textured and aromatic, with blackcurrant, raspberry and cherry jam flavours and a warm, spicy finish, it has been likened to a fine Roussillon red.
Very aromatic with fruity nuances of peach and custard apple as well as some mineral notes. Powerful on the palate, with well-balanced acidity and a long finish. If you have never had Albarino I highly recommend you try this one...a perfect example of this popular grape variety.
Mâcon-Villages Wine in white gold dress with green hues, shiny and soft. On the nose, the aromas suggest broom, white rose, acacia, honeysuckle, fern, verbena, lemongrass, citrus. Pine, quince and fennel appear at the end of the mouth.
