2013 Godfather Sparkling MCZD LD $60.00 per bottle $330.00/ six-pack ($55.00 each)
The fruit for our third sparkling Blanc de Blancs was harvested in early January 2013 following a somewhat cool growing season. The wine is very pale straw in colour with hints of green, displaying fine, persistent bead which caresses and surprises the palate. The subtle bouquet of toasty green apple, and grapefruit is underlined by notes of yeast and dough and carries through to the palate, finishing tantalisingly fresh and dry. Enjoy with oysters, California rolls, gravlax and a well-deserved day off. VERY LIMITED SUPPLY. NFT
2018 Happiness is... Riesling $25.00 per bottle $240.00/dozen ($20.00 each)
Clear and bright and very pale straw in colour, our first riesling has the savoury whiff of minerals and subtle sweet apple on the nose. With pleasant, smooth mouthfeel, the palate is a delicate balance of pink apples and citrus, finishing with lively acidity. A perfect match for your favourite Chinese meal, roast pork and apple, cold roast meats, smoked trout, crusty bread and a picnic... Happiness is…
Absent Friends $20.00 per bottle $180.00/dozen ($15.00 each)
Again, we welcome the return of our light, easy-drinking, fruit-driven white blend: 'Absent Friends'. The juice was fermented in stainless steel, producing a wine that is clear, bright and pale straw in colour and displays tropical fruits and delicate pear on the nose. With distinctive fruit salad on the palate, it finishes with delicate apple – a refreshing summer style and a great accompaniment to seafood and spicy meals.
2017 Top Block Chardonnay $50.00 per bottle $270.00/6pack ($45.00 each)
Handpicked, as with all fruit used for our wines, this is another of our chardonnays that will benefit from careful cellaring for 2-6 years when it will hit a wonderful plateau of enjoyment. It is brilliant in clarity, pale straw in colour. The nose displays delicate citrus, white peach and grapefruit supported by toasty oak. The palate is long with complex stonefruit characters followed by a crisp refreshing finish with a delicately lingering cinnamon aftertaste. Enjoy a glass with seafood and salads…lunch out on the deck... whatever you like!
2016 Godfather Chardonnay $60.00 per bottle $300.00/6pack ($50.00 each)
This elegant chardonnay is brilliant in clarity and very pale straw in colour with tinges of green. The nose entices with opulent yellow peach and melon supported by oatmeal and toasty oak. The palate is long with complex stonefruit characters, a rich creamy mouthfeel followed by a delicately refreshing finish and a softly lingering caramel aftertaste. This wine will reward careful cellaring, developing lovely full fruit and nutty oak characters. Enjoy a glass on its own, with seafoods and salads…or consider pork belly… doing the ironing, reading a book…endless possibilities.
