Only 53 cases were made, but we were lucky to get a few of them before the winery SOLD OUT!  Don't wait.

92/100 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Skeetfield Vineyard Chardonnay was barrel-fermented in one-year-old puncheon and barrique, without added yeast or sulfur, and underwent full malolactic in the spring following harvest, spending ten months on the lees prior to sulfuring and bottling. It offers subtle aromas of toasted grain, ripe apples and white peaches, plus a hint of honey, and it has a medium-bodied palate and a crisp, elegant finish."

Only 85 cases were made and we were lucky to get a few of them. Now is your chance to savor and enjoy the only New Zealand Gamay Noir exported to the United States.

91/100 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate: "Wild-fermented as whole clusters, foot-stomped, aged in old barriques and without any added sulfur (even at bottling), the 2017 Gamay fits every definition of natural wine. It's also frankly delicious, with stemmy-floral-herbal notes that accent cherry and raspberry fruit. Medium-bodied, it's juicy and mouthwatering, with faint notes of peppery spice on the long, silky finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years."

89/100 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate "No false advertising here. The 2017 Fat & Sassy Chardonnay delivers plenty of heft, along with bold flavors of oak spice, vanilla and movie popcorn. It's unabashedly Old School, which probably makes it hipster these days, or maybe not—what do I know? Full-bodied, loaded with pineapple and peach notes, hints of butter and enough acidity to provide a sense of balance, it's just good, flavorful wine for drinking over the next couple of years."

92/100 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate: "In the 2017 Heartwood Chardonnay, Tony Bish has tapped into some seriously good oak, seamlessly matching its refined hints of pencil shavings and toasted hazelnuts with pineapple and white peach fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, with layers of silky texture and plenty of length on the finish."

91/100 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate: "Produced in NZ-made concrete eggs, the 2017 Golden Egg Chardonnay allows the ripe pineapple and peach flavors of Bish's Mendoza Clone Chardonnay to sing. It's medium to full-bodied, with a slightly creamy mid-palate and a long, fruit-driven finish."

Only 250 cases produced, fewer than 20 cases imported.  We are so lucky to be able to offer this truly unique wine.  The 2017 vintage will be allocated.

91/100 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate: "Scents of toasted hazelnuts grace the nose of the 2016 Skeetfield Chardonnay, which seems considerably more oak-driven than the 2017 version. That's not a bad thing, when the oak is this good and those rich, toasty notes are backed by plenty of ripe pineapple and white peach flavors. This luscious wine is probably best consumed over the next couple of years."

As featured in Rebecca Gibb MW’s top New Zealand white wines from 2018: 90 Points - Decanter Magazine. Only 775 cases produced, and fewer than 28 cases imported. 

Decanter Magazine, Rebecca Gibb MW: "Hailing from the coolest part of Central Otago, Pinot Gris here retains a sense of direction despite its inclination toward richness on the palate. Aromatically, imagine walking into a florists that also has a side-line in Parma Violets and you’ll get the picture. The finish is off-dry and satisfying with a touch of grippy phenolics providing a framework on the medium-length finish."

As featured in Rebecca Gibb MW’s top New Zealand white wines from 2018: 91 Points Decanter Magazine. Only 316 cases produced and only 28 cases imported.

Decanter Magazine, Rebecca Gibb MW: "Floral and full of nectarine and orange fruit, this is a wine of two halves: at first it’s sweet, juicy and welcoming, then the finish is satisfyingly structured, offering a fine-grained texture and precise acidity. Valli's Grant Taylor has been making wine in Waitaki for over a decade and has recently purchased a vineyard, so this is one to follow."

Wine Enthusiast 92/100 Points - Editors' Choice.  The winery is sold out.  Only 651 cases produced and less than 25 cases imported. 

Christina Pickard, Contributing Editor, Wine Entusiast: "Otago veteran Grant Taylor's single vineyard wines are an excellent deep dive into Otago's varied terroirs. This vintage of Bannockburn is particularly pretty and approachable, and less rich than the Gibbston. Heady notes of raspberry, vanilla, clove and white pepper envelop the senses. The bright, tart berries continue on the palate where the tightly wound, sinewy tannins are balanced by crunchy acidity. Drink now–2028."

93/100 Points - Wine Spectator Insider: "Distinctly spicy, with sarsaparilla, clove and cedar notes that mingle with dense blackberry and blueberry flavors.  The tannins are firm, the acidity fresh.  Details of sandalwood and cigar box linger on the finish.  Drink now through 2034. From New Zealand." – M.W.
