Maurice O'Shea Hunter Valley Shiraz 2000

Spice, Plum and Earthy aromas with a little mint - typical Hunter Valley aromatics with a bit of sweaty saddle. On the palate more full bodied than the old school Hunter Valley Shirazes. Handpicked from 100+ year old vines where Maurice O’Shea created his famous red wines in the 1920’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s in primitive conditions until his death in 1956. Most O’Sheas only hitting their stride after 20 years and this is no exception. I still have some from the late 90’s. — 2 days ago

Petillant Naturel Waihopai Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Light, crisp, refreshing, slightly sour on its own, but not overwhelmingly so, making it a perfect palate cleanser. Sweetens a bit when paired with creamy dishes. — 7 days ago

Lovedale Sémillon 2005

2005 vintage. From the Hunter Valley Lovedale vineyard, planted in 1946, this Sémillon is absolutely fabulous. Bright golden colour. Captivating perfume combining dried fruits ( lemon confit pineapple) and fresh lime , honey, bee wax , butter and flowers. Amazingly fresh with honeyed layered fruit balanced by bright acidity and a stoney minerality. Terrific length too. World-class Semillon. Only 11,5% abv. — 4 months ago

Vat 1 Hunter Valley Semillon 2015

This was great with Thanksgiving dinner. Fresh cut grass, lemon, honey, apricot, peaches, and some funky minerals that push toward Riesling notes. Outstanding. Wonderful body and finish. — 4 months ago

Pegasus Bay

Waipara Valley Pinot Noir 2019

My kind of pinot. Dark savoury nose. Palate is med-full bodied. Dark fruit, savoury spice and mushroom, sour dark cherry. Tannic grip gives length. Lacks a bit of complexity but the power and integration is top shelf. Strong buy — 5 months ago
