Roger Parkinson of Nga Waka is a true advocate for Riesling. Join us when we go "Back to the Future", tasting of 12 vintages of Riesling from Nga Waka. A sit down affair where Roger will woo you with his love of this grape varietal. Only $20 per person, limited seats available, from 5:30 - 7pm.
Full bodied garnet colour with an energetic youthful blue hue. Swirls in the glass with a weighty feel of density and concentration.
A clean, clear and direct nose intensely expressive of wild blackberry (picked and eaten at the bush) and black doris plum with a delicate lacing of very mild white pepper and sweet oak spice.
Come and celebrate, learn and discover more about the great white varietal.
It is with pleasure we hostSchubert in our store for the month of February 2014.
Multiple international gold medals have cemented Schubert as one of Martinborough's top producers.
Come visit us this month to try.
The Martinborough Wine Centre Consumer’s Choice Award evolved through discussions about Pinot noir between staff, producers and visitors to the store.
UK based wine journalist Jamie Goode has penned a review of his top New Zealand pinot noirs from the Pinot Noir Conference 2013 in Wellington, and no surprise to us the 2006 Kusuda is his highest rated wine at 97/100 points. Jamie praises the purity & elegance of the wine and we can understand his enthusiasm.
Comparative tastings with our customers demonstrate the significance of the quality of glass in offering the very best expression of the wine in it. Exposing customers to the Gabriel glass has so clearly shown the class of this glassware in elevating the wine experience and its versatility across varieties and styles of wine.
