Mr.Smith Shiraz

Rich, ripe blackberry and plum flavors with chocolate undertones. A lush mouth-coating finish and balanced spice for complexity.

 
 

Moonvine Biodynamic Red

The mystical union of the moon and the vine is not entirely coincidental: it is now accepted that there is a symbiotic relationship between the phases of the moon and the progress of the vine. 

The union of these three varieties has produced a wine of magnificent flavour, structure and depth. Due to its full body and rich cherry berry flavours, this wine is best served with cassoulet and all manner of roasts and barbecued meats.

V.Mitolo & Son Waveform Shiraz

Wines are produced using traditional methods passed down from one generation to the next, gently blended with the wine making techniques of the new world.

Beautifully ripe fruits on offer – spice, blackberries at the fore, complemented by dark chocolate, pepper, freshly ground coffee notes and toasty, nutty oak in the background.  The palate is full and the finish is long and smooth.

This wine was matured in American and French oak Hogsheads (25% New), for 19 months and was fermented on skins for 9 days then pressed into barrel to complete alcoholic and malolactic fermentations.

 
 

Decibel Pinot Noir

Decibel Wines are the vision of Winemaker Daniel Brennan and produced with some of New Zealand's best Wine Growers. 

Tasting Notes : 

Ruby jewelled colour with aromas of raspberry, spice, dark toast and forest floor. The mouthfeel is bright and perky on entry with soft, savoury flavours and supple acidity. The structure is built on fine grain and chalky tannins with a lingering juicy finish. 

The Vineyard : 

This family vineyard of 2 hectares was planted in 1990 with 100% Pinot Noir of Dijon clones, 10/5 and some close planted Abel clone on low fruiting wires. The vineyard is situated on New York Street a 10 minute walk from the town centre but set on the legendary ancient river terraces of Martinborough. The soils are predominantly free draining river gravels with varying depths of wind blown silts and a small amount of clay towards the eastern boundary. Low cropping vines resulted in intense fruit in the fantastic 2013 vintage in New Zealand.

Winemaking : 

The fruit was hand picked and carefully attended to over a sorting table. 10% whole bunches with stems were used in the fermenter. A 5 day cold soak was followed by the fermenter being warmed to encourage the wild ferment. Throughout the fermentation the vat was hand plunged to allow for gentle extraction. After fermentation the must was macerated for an additional 3 days before being drained and pressed to 30% one year old oak barriques with the balance to three year old barriques allowing the elegance of the wine to be featured. After 10 months in barrel the wine was racked to tank to settled and then unfiltered to bottle.
