  • Ata Rangi McCrone Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

    £49.99

    “Pale ruby with some black tints. Crunchy blackberry and violets, herb and earth. Firm tannins, juicy acidity, spice, pepper and earth. Salty tang. Tense and tightly wound. Great wine. Drink: 2023-2028. 17.5+ points”

  • Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2018

    £47.99

    “A very pale-hued yet elegant style that displays bitter cherry, orange peel and potpourri aromas. The 35% whole bunch component is integrated, offering spice and drive. The acidity is gently refreshing while the tannins are elegant. This vintage perhaps doesn’t have the stuffing of the best Ata Rangi’s but it is deftly handled; the period the wine spent in barrel was reduced so this pretty style did not become oaky. If you have other recent vintages from Ata Rangi in your cellar, you might want to uncork and enjoy the 2018 first, as it’s going to provide plenty of enjoyment in the first 3–8 years of its life. Drinking window: 2022-2028. 92 points”

  • Clos Henri Pinot Noir 2017

    £28.99

    “Clos Henri’s 2017 Pinot Noir is an excellent effort. Its subtle florals and ripe black cherries are concentrated but restrained, balanced against a backdrop of loam, crushed stone and pencil shavings. Medium-bodied and silky on the palate, it’s a wine made to complement food, not dominate it, with silky tannins and a long, gently textured finish. This French-owned property seems to be getting more and more consistent over recent vintages. Drink: 2021-2027. 91 points”

  • Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc 2019

    £21.99

    “Attractive hints of crushed stone, graphite and nettle leaves appear on the nose of Clos Henri’s 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. Backed by layers of white grapefruit and riper notions of stone fruit, this medium-bodied wine is a fine effort. The silky, expansive mouthfeel leads into a long, gently textured finish that leaves tasters refreshed and yearning for another sip. After some irregular performances, this property seems to be finding its stride. Drink: 2021-2022. 92 points”

  • Dry River Chardonnay 2017

    £46.99

    “From a cooler year, the 2017 Chardonnay is a bit leaner and more lemony than the 2016. There’s a hint of struck match up front, then toasty notes framing the citrusy flavors. It’s medium-bodied, with a silky texture and a long finish, and should drink well for another 5-6 years. Drink: 2019-2025. 92 points”

  • Dry River Lovat Vineyard Syrah 2015

    £49.99

    “Dry River’s 2015 Lovat Vineyard Syrah is a dark-hued beauty, redolent of cola, espresso and boysenberries. Medium-bodied, it’s firm but ripe, showing ample depth and richness on the palate and a long, mocha-tinged and softly dusty finish. It should drink well for a decade or more. Drink: 2020-2035. 92 points”

  • Dry River Pinot Noir 2015

    £59.99

    “The 2015 Pinot Noir comes from a year that saw reduced crop yields and a dry summer. The result is a concentrated, tannic, age-worthy wine that was aged in 20%-25% new French oak hogsheads. It’s medium to full-bodied and velvety in texture, with black cherry notes that come dangerously close to being chocolaty, but it retains a sense of freshness on the long, rich finish. Drink: 2022-2030. 94 points”

  • Mahi Pinot Noir 2019

    £23.99

    “This is a combination of four vineyards around the region, and the result is aromatically appealing, presenting a mix of cranberry and plum fruit, floral notes and a delicate smoked bacon character. It’s fine and soft in texture, making for a very welcome entrance. A whole-bunch component (around 30%) has contributed a sense of direction on the finish and grip on the back palate. Drinking window: 2021-2025. 90 points”
