Spicy, fresh and floral, the nose on this Viognier immediately marks it as a wine to be savored. On the palate, it's lighter and fresher than the typical Viognier, with its white peach and lemon, but still full of dimension. Balanced acids keep it dancing on the tongue. Pair with chicken or fish.
From exacting winemaker Andrew Barns, this rich, distinctive Cabernet starts with aromas of blackberry, black currant, mocha and mint, leading into approachable flavors of cherry, peppers, clove and spice. Fruity but balanced, and ready to drink now.
Bright citrus notes of lemon and pineapple start the show with this cheerful, versatile white from the lesser-known winemaking region of Wellington, and in the glass, you'll find delicious flavors of tropical passionfruit and lemon. Clean and light but with some dimension in the midpalate.
A lovely nose of violets and soft berries leads on this stylish Shiraz. On the palate, luscious berry, pepper and minerals mingle together with elegance. The finish is long and clean.
Richly scented, with aromas that resemble a cross between graham crackers and Nilla Wafers, plus a few tablespoons of blackberry preserves. It’s still young and rambunctious, with assertive oak warring a bit with the jammy fruit, but should settle down in another year or two, while still retaining a bit of an untamed, rustic edge.

Ripe and fruit forward. Strong notes of berry preserves and juicy black plum are laced with notes of purple flowers and sweet smoked meat. Medium weight with soft tannins and a clean finish. Drink now.
Flavors of bright, ripe black currant fruit and a nose of cinnamon, anise and blackberry recommend this energetic wine from the Wellington region. Slightly rustic but still restrained and elegant, the wine will pair well with grilled meat and a myriad of cheeses.
