Akitu A2 Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago, New Zealand
£ 36.00
Bunches of bright red fruits, rose petal and just a hint of cinnamon carry through from the nose to the palate. The exceedingly bright, fresh flavours balance with a depth of flavour and a supple, silky tannin structure. This would be absolutely perfect to drink right away but will also be rewarded by a further one to three years of cellaring, to develop slightly more nuanced flavours.
Akitu Pinot Noir Blanc 2022, Central Otago, New Zealand
£ 36.00
Whole bunch pressed and racked to ferment with natural yeasts. Minimal skin contact results in a blush of colour and fine, peppery phenolics. The wine is dry with appealing layers of tree fruits and hazelnut flavours. It has surprising power.
Cloudy Bay Chardonnay 2020, Marlborough
£ 37.50
The palate it fresh and lively with a bright acid backbone. Flavours abound of nectarines & peaches, juicy citrus and grapefruit pith. Good length with delicate texture and a fine mineral thread. 
Esk Valley Sauvignon 2022, Marlborough, New Zealand
£ 14.95
This is a very intense and powerful wine. True to its Marlborough origins its flavours are a mix of ripe tropical fruits, citrus and cooler notes of fresh herbs and pea pod. It is dry and full bodied but a crisp finish provides freshness and length
Left Field Pinot Noir 2019, Marlborough, New Zealand
£ 19.95
Sweetly ripe and inviting, the bouquet shows juicy strawberry, cherry, thyme and warm spice aromas. It's equally appealing on the palate offering smooth mouthfeel and bright fruit flavours, finishing silky and friendly.
Taylors Pass Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Villa Maria
£ 20.80
Citrus-scented sauvignon blanc with passionfruit, gooseberry, green capsicum and lemongrass flavours. Intense, mouth-watering wine with appealing sweet-and-sour tension. A ripe example of the Awatere style. 95 Points. BOB CAMPBELL MW
