Mills Reef Estate Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2020
In addition to being listed as a top-value wine and receiving four starts, this wine was also featured as their Buy of the Week.
After a brief cold soak to extract colour and flavour the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 28 days before being pressed to barrel where it matured for 14 months in French oak barrels (25% new).
Medium-bodied syrah from an excellent vintage. Vibrant plum, dark chocolate, black pepper, floral/violet and subtle oak flavours. Excellent entry level that punched above its weight in this outstanding vintage.
Leveret IQ3 Méthode Traditionnelle
Aromas of vanilla, almond and straw blossom combine with a rich full palate, creamy texture and fine effervescence.
Leveret IQ Premium Brut Méthode Traditionnelle
Characters of nuts, freshly baked bread, wild mushrooms and marzipan. A citrus and stone fruit base with a fresh, gentle effervescence and long textural finish.
Leveret Estate Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2022
Pale pink in colour with aromas of red fruits, watermelon and rose petal. The palate is dry and salivating with a hint of spice.
Falconhead Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2021
Bright red fruits and lifted florals lure you in. The palate, flush with strawberries and cream, delivers a long, dry and delicious finish.
