Amoise Chenin Blanc 2020
Amoise Chenin Blanc 2020

“The grapes were foot crushed in picking bins and left to soak for 18 hours to extract phenolics. Whole bunch pressed into old barrels. I made a vineyard starter (pied de cuve) with Chenin grapes that fermented naturally in the vineyard under the vines. I then inoculated my barrels with this tasty juice!
This is one of my longest fermenting wines (from harvest throughout winter!) and has tropical fruit notes of guava, mango with green apple and dry razor finish.  The label is a tasting note of all the fruit notes that came up during fermentation: mango, peach, guava & granny smith apple”. Amy Farnsworth, Winemaker.

Amoise Gris 2020
Amoise Gris 2020

100% certified organic fruit, macerated and spending almost a month on skins. This is from the Mangatahi Terraces, of higher elevation and a bit cooler and more marginal than the other Hawke’s Bay appellations. The wine is light and fragrant this year, a blood orange colour with the usual hints of pear and ginger spice.

This southern star smashes through the palate with green apple and quartz-powder, mineral-driven mouthfeel that lingers long and will send your saliva glands into overload.

BK Wines Pet Nat Chardonnay 2021
BK Wines Pet Nat Chardonnay 2021

Pet Nat – or rustic, farmhouse sparkling wine created by producing a fermentation in the bottle – is to sunshine as gumboots are to muddy puddles… you don’t have to have either of them to enjoy the other but you’re a whole lot happier if you do. 100% Basket Range Chardonnay. Whole-bunch pressed to concrete ‘egg’ fermenter. Fermented until nearly dry. Light, white pear flavours and enticing frizz. You’ll find yourself praying for summer sunshine or just sitting under a warm, bright light with your glass and pretending it’s here.

BK Wines Pet Nat Pinot Noir 2021

This season’s Pét Nat Pinot Noir, in addition to all the joy it brings to drink, can be almost as pleasurable just to open up and sit and watch… a veritable lava lamp of lees. Unmistakably and purely Pinot Noir on the nose, just-ripe raspberries on the palate. So many processes of control go into making a Champagne, while Pét Nat is permitted to largely create itself. Where last vintage resulted in a sort of wild, messy, walk-of-shame debauchery, this vintage is tidy and compartmentalised, with a glittery bead and velveteen mousse. Good, clean, bubbly fun. 100% Lenswood Pinot Noir. Whole-bunch pressed to concrete ‘egg’ fermenter. Fermented until nearly dry.

This is technically a “Blanc de Noir” – made from 100% Pinot Noir and in a rich and full bodied style of Methode Traditionelle. If you prefer your bubbles on the yeasty, chocolatey and savoury end of the spectrum this should definitely catch your eye. Creamy long and satisfying savoury finish too.

Commune of Buttons Basket Town 2020
Commune of Buttons Basket Town 2020

“We picked three parcels that are a mix of Dijon clones including the rare chardonnay Muscat (about 10% of the final wine); an ancient ancestor of the modern chardonnay grapes of today. 1 tone of fruit was picked in the third week of March and crushed underfoot. The juice was fermented in a single 600L demi-muid and aged on full lees for 11 months and stirred for lees integration once a week for about a month. Basket Town white is a spicy saline chardonnay with white flesh peaches and nectarine. The Muscat character lifts the aromatics and makes the wine incredibly accessible.” Producer Notes

“Fermentation took place in 600L barrels and the wine remained on full lees for a year with some lees stirring over winter (roughly once a week for 2 months). Commune White is a bright, well-rounded wine with pear, lime and peach fruits. There is a delicate savoury brioche thread that lingers into the well-known saline minerality and natural acidity of the clay sandstone soils of the vineyards.” Producer Notes

Commune of the Buttons Nebbiolo Rosé 2020
Commune of the Buttons Nebbiolo Rosé 2020

Has a vibrant, tangy nose full of strawberry and cherry notes, with a brisk palate that is both subtle and juicy.

Two-days on skins, and fermentation in old oak puncheons, give the wine gravitas and length. Less of a park wine, more of an Italian picnic-wine centred around wild-boar sausage sandwiches. Tastes more like chilled red rather than typical Rosé.

De la Terre Reserve Tannat 2018

The nose has a totally unique fruit profile of blackberry/blueberry notes and an underlying earthiness with hints of fountain-pen ink and a seam of French oak. At present, the wine displays a youthful vibrancy – our experience is that with bottle age, the primary fruit gives way to earthiness and increased complexity.

Delicate notes of citrus blossom, quince and lychee alongside a seam of flinty minerality on the nose. On the palate, an elegant and refined balance of ripe, clean Viognier flavours and gentle acidity. Flavours of honey, lychee and light citrus dominate. The palate structure is tight and linear with a clean, crisp and long finish.

Decibel Giunta Crispy White 2020

An intriguing blend of 35% Chenin Blanc, 33% Viognier, 32% Chardonnay. Very light, pale straw colour. High notes of white stone fruit and hints of exquisite floral notes, which open up to broader spices and richer tones of ripe peach and red delicious apples. The palate is soft and lush up front but quickly evolves into a racy midpalate and bright finish. Lingering notes in the midpalate of brioche while the finish has a lasting spice and vibrancy.

Decibel Giunta Malbec Nouveau 2021

For this lighter style, the Malbec color is quite a dark purple. The nose is grainy, brambly with hints of violets and tamarillo growing into notes of blackberry and blueberry pie. Some hints of all spice and confection notes also persist. The palate has a lightly spicy attack with a juicy, supple acidity that drives the mid-palate. The wine finishes short and fresh bringing you back for more. Drink now or over the next 3 years.
