Carrick (Central Otago) 2017 Excelsior Pinot Noir

94 Points Excellent - Cameron Douglas
"Integrating and harmonising well with aromas of complexity and charm, pinosity, fruit and layers of French oak and barrel toast. Flavours of red berries and cherry, baking spices of clove and vanilla and toasty barrel flavours of smoke and new wood. An abundance of tannins adds a chalk and fine dusty texture, medium acidity refreshes the palate, but also carries the flavours of fruit and a fine savoury complexity throughout the palate. Lengthy dry finish, balanced and well made. Best drinking from late 2021 through 2027+."

Only 300 cases made in the best years, this is an intensely rich wine that will cellar until at least 2020 and drinking will give rewarding ongoing pleasure.

Named for the coal seam which was mined during the goldrush and lies beneath the Carrick Vineyards thier finest expression of Pinot Noir. The wine is aged in barrel for 18 months, then bottled without fining. It is contemplative, earthy, and powerful.

Carrick (Central Otago) 2018 Bannockburn Pinot Noir

4.5 Stars - Michael Cooper
"A regional classic. Certified organic, the 2018 vintage is from the hottest growing season on record. A powerful young red, it was hand-picked from estate-grown, 25 year-old vines and matured for nine months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new). Bright ruby, it is mouthfilling, sweet-fruited and supple, with well-ripened cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, showing good complexity, balanced acidity and a very harmonious finish. Best drinking 2023+."

Carricks' estate Pinot Noir is always a treat and always consistent.

The Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir is known for its structure and its ability to age well over a long period of time.
Winery description
"The Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir is known for its structure and its ability to age well over a long period of time. The 2018 growing season had the hottest growing season on record, with rain just before harvest, it was incredibly unusual and picking began two weeks earlier than normal. The fruit came in looked good and the resulting wines are generous and impressive. This wine is an integral part of what we do and a wine that we feel represents the strong connection we have with our land. The fruit comes from a parcel of vines which are entirely grown on their own roots and are the oldest vines we have on the property. Now 25 years old."

Classic Central Otago Pinot Noir, with good structure, earthy tones alongside red fruit and great balance. Classic, well-balanced, generous.

Domaine Rewa (Otago) 2019 Chardonnay

5 Stars 19/20 - Candice Chow Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
"Bright, pale straw-yellow, even colour throughout. The nose is gently full and elegant, penetrating aromas of stonefruit, melon, citrus, along with mineral melded with subtlely well-proportioned custard, raw nuts and spices. Medium-bodied, lush fruit of peach, nectarine and melon fills the palate, lemon sherbet and zest added freshness. Flavours grow in intensity, unfolding refined toasty oak with white spice and a little cream linger to a long, sustained refined finish. The wine is elegant and delicate; crisp acidity thread flows smoothly with chalky phenolic, adorn by a little creaminess and reflecting fruit's purity. This harmonious and sleek Chardonnay with fruit's purity, lacy acidity and a chalky mineral mouthfeel is already delicious. Match with whitebait fritters and soft cheese over the next 5+ years. Handpicked Mendoza and Clone 15 Chardonnay, whole bunch pressed to tank, settled overnight, then transferred to French oak barriques for wild fermentation, 13.5% alc. Aged in oak for 9 months, 36% new oak, MLF occurred, and lees stirred weekly. No fining. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Mar 2021 RRP $55"

Elegant and just divine.

5.5 hectare vineyard planted in 1997, on the fluvial terraces beneath the Pisa Range with a mix of varieties, including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling. Only the finest grapes are used to produce the wines for Domaine Rewa so production is limited.

Giesen Organic (Marlborough) 2016 Syrah

Think Giesen are all about cheapie white wines. Think again, we were in awe of this top notch Syrah from The best site in Marlborough. Buy this and you wont regret it.

Intriguing from the moment the bottle is opened the appeal of this premium organic Syrah is obvious from its elegant aromatics. Savour its violet floral and black pepper on the nose, followed on the palate by layers of dark blackberries and juniper offset by earthy, smokey character framed by a dash of oak and spice.

Konrad (Marlborough) 2020 Sauvignon Blanc

"At bottling the Konrad Sauvignon Blanc is already impressive. The aromatics of this wine are primary aromas of gooseberry, passion fruit and elderflower. In the mouth the wine is immediately appealing with more of those exotic tropical fruits and textural tone weaving seamlessly with crisp acid and a slice of residual fruit sweetness. It is a wine we are immensely proud to call our flagship wine." Konrad Wines

Konrad (Marlborough) 2021 Gruner Veltliner

Their shared commitment to quality shaped their partnerships across decades, ultimately leading Konrad to pass the baton on his retirement. The Giesen brothers continue Konrad Wines’ legacy, distributing quality wines around the world.

Tasting Note The pale lemon appearance underlies a wine with wonderful intensity. Aromatically the wine shows fresh notes of lemon, lime, tropical fruits, guava, and subtle spice. On the palate enjoy hints of citrus, nashi pear and lemon barley. This wine has wonderful complexity; its lively acidity is in harmony with the sustained finish.

fruit was picked at optimum ripeness and pressed off into two separate parcels. The first parcel was cool fermented in stainless steel tanks to enhance aromatics. To build the complexity a second parcel was fermented in large format 1000 litre German Oak Fuder barrels. These barrels hold a warmer fermentation temperature; the shape and size minimise oak influence. The wine had a short period resting on fine lees prior to bottling in winter 2021.

Perfect summer sipping!

Millton (Gisborne) 2019 Riverpoint Viognier

Millton winery was established in 1984. They were the first wine producer in New Zealand to gain Bio-Gro certification for organic wine production (1989) and the first in the Southern Hemisphere to gain the biodynamic certification Demeter (2009). Their four dry farmed vineyards are all farmed biodynamically and this level of care and attention shows in the quality of the resulting wines.

Commercial description

"A haunting wine with bristling delicacy, buoyed by a noted mineral edge. Poached pear and warm croissant give a spiced and sappy appeal. The salinity sings the proximity of the vineyard to its maritime environment. We consider the aromatic delight of Viognier will enhance and partner foods high in Umami flavours. Drink now through to 2026 with happiness.

Olcaviana (Spain) 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon

Part of Winesale's direct import range.

AMAZING VALUE 100% Organic wine from our friends at Sierra Norte 

Once the grapes have arrive at the cellars, they are cooled to delay the fermentation, while frequent pump-overs are carried out to achieve a better extraction of colour, aroma precursors and only the soft tannins. The alcoholic fermentation is then done at a controlled temperature of 22-24°C with gentle pumping over. The marc is pressed in a pneumatic press, and then the malolactic fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks.

A dark, cherry-red colour with purple glints. Intense and lingering fruit character showing strawberries and redcurrants. Fresh on the palate with lively tannins and a lingering sensation of spice.

Peregrine (Otago) 2019 Pinot Noir

Listed in 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand List

Commercial description

"Peregrine wines are named in honour of New Zealand’s endemic falcon (Karearea in Maori), a bird that combines both power and finesse, the essence of Peregrine’s range of wines. None more so than this impressive Pinot Noir which has gone through somewhat of a resurgence in recent vintages. This can be attributed to amongst other things, vine age, a switch to organic principles and clearly a greater understanding of site and winemaking, with judicious use of oak and considered whole bunch elements attributing to a Central Otago Pinot Noir of the highest quality.

Dark cherry, wild berry and earthy aromatics laced with dried alpine herbs. A lovely concentrated palate of black cherry, raspberry and chocolate combine with spice and suppl e tannin which add flavour and texture to this balanced and layered wine. Purity, elegance combine with texture, concentration and length. A true reflection of the three Central
Otago sub regions that contribute to our Pinot Noir."

Bottle fermented and aged on lees. Riddled and disgorged by hand from early 2018 onwards at Quartz Reef. The winemaking was very much in keeping with the traditional practices of the Old World.

Part of the stunning selection of wines from Quinta Das Maias, Dão, Northern Portugal. Exclusive to Winesale.

The wines of Dão are unique, age worthy and eclectic. The region and Quinta Das Maias, Quinta Dos Roques in particular, have pioneered to save their own indigenous varieties such as Jaen. The region has been referred to as the Burgundy of Portugal with complex and ageworthy wines being produced.

 Intense and clear appearance. Aromas of spice, cassis, plums and blackberries, in full harmony with the vanilla offered by the wood. In the mouth it is powerful, full bodied, with tannins very present but very soft and a finish prolonged.

Te Whare Ra (Marlborough) 2020 Gewurztraminer

94 Points - Nick Stock, James Suckling’s Top 100 NZ
"Wow, this has so much rose perfume and lychee going on. Striking nose that’s so, so perfumed and alluring. The palate has a super-luscious texture and bold ripe peach and mango, banana and lychee. A riot of flavor. Drink now."

95 Points - Cameron Douglas MS
"Pristine pure bouquet, exotic, fleshy, fruity and familiar. Aromas and flavours of apples and white fleshed tropical fruits, roses and sweet grapefruit, umami and spice. A silky texture precedes contrasting acidity and fine fruit tannin textures. Long lasting finish with a plush and satisfying climax. Best drinking upon purchase and through 2026+. Perfect vegan, vegetarian and white fleshed proteins wine."

Winery notes
"Te Whare Ra has a long standing reputation for producing one of New Zealand’s finest Gewürztraminers and much of the credit must go to the vineyard here. This wine is produced solely from 14 rows in the old block which were planted in 1979 and are some of the oldest vines in Marlborough at 38 years of age. Part of the reason for our conversion to organic and biodynamic farming was to rescue these old vines and coax them back to life. We saw huge potential in this old block and successfully rejuvenating them has been one of our greatest achievements. They are very low-cropping, which is not great for the accountant’s numbers, but this is worth it for the amazing complexity and concentration we get from the fruit and the exceptional quality of the resultant wines.

Intensely perfumed, with notes of lychees, ripe oranges and cloves. These lead into luscious varietal flavours of lychee and quince, with underlying characters of ginger and exotic spice. The palate shows intense fruit concentration and weight with a fine, soft texture and excellent persistence of flavour. This wine is off dry and continues the outstanding quality of previous vintages of our Te Whare Ra Gewürztraminer."
