Here is what people are saying...
2015 Vigneron Chardonnay

"It's wines like this that remind me of why Gisborne held the Chardonnay Capital crown for so long.  It is ripping with roast stonefruit and caramelised spices and has juicy pineapple and grapefruit layers in the mid-pallette.  The acidity is frisky and taut and there is even a whiff of brulee to inject creamy complexity in to every sip."

2017 Voysey Pinot Gris

"This wine is all about shape and texture. It’s a riper style, curvaceous in the mouth rather than linear. The fruit has weight, helped by an appropriate dab of sweetness, with baked pear and spice notes on offer. A wine with purity, integrity and most importantly, drinkability."

Voignier

For my smoked salmon main John David introduced me to the most delicious Viognier I've yet tasted – from that small but boldly experimental Gisborne winery, Spade Oak.

2011 St Laurent

The big surprise for me was the arrival of Austrian red variety St Laurent.  Widely thought to be the result of pinot noir having a one-night stand with a mystery grape some 400 years ago... It's a fresh, vibrant red that I'm definitely going to have on the table the next time I do lamb racks. Attractive strawberry, raspberry tea, cranberry and spice aromas lead the way to tangy, red-liquorice and berry flavours on the palate, all wrapped up in stretchy, supple tannins and tightly coiled acidity.

Saint Laurent is a highly aromatic dark-skinned variety mainly grown in Austria and the Czech Republic – Fabulous deep black cherry purple in the glass, sweet dark berries, floral and forest / smoky notes in the nose, wonderfully rich on the palate, juicy, plummy, jammy, but lovely soft integrated tannins and oak. My first ever St Laurent and I think I’m hooked – Glenys loved it and rated as one of her fave reds ever.

2012 Heart of Gold Albariño

Albarino is a relatively new and interesting grape variety from North West Spain with more #NZWINE growers starting to grow this recently with great success. This wine is pale straw gold in the glass with soft floral notes, tropical and stonefruit aromas in the nose. Lots of fresh citrus, limes on the palate with a solid acid backbone, dry finish with great length. Excellent food wine, great value
