Aurum Dry Riesling 2015

$29.00

­

Wow! Lime alert! 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. The citrus intensity is one thing, but the honeysuckle and hints of biscuit really add to the complexity of this wine in the mouth. It’s a clean, zingy wine which zips into action immediately. This is the sort of wine that’ll be perfection with classic, sweet and sour pork with pineapple chunks. Appearance is crystal clear, pale lemon.

Carrick Wines Bannockburn Pinot Gris 2017

$28.00 $25.20

A wonderful textural element on the palate that is reflective of an Alsatian style while retaining a clean acidity that is a hallmark of our windblown glacial soils on the Cairnmuir terraces in Bannockburn. Subtle blossom aromas with flavours of white nectarine close to the stone are evident. A lovely structural white wine that sits nicely in the glass, perfect as a late afternoon aperitif.  Pair with South East Asian cuisine and enjoy.

Carrick Wines EBM Chardonnay 2016

$48.00 $43.20

The additional six months in neutral oak on light sediments increases the depth of the mouth feel found in the mid palate. This added texture, coupled with the fruit and restrained acidity, ultimately leads to a long seamless finish. A very well balanced wine – a great accompaniment to fresh food with clean ingredients.

Carrick Wines Unravelled Pinot Noir 2017

This wine displays lots of vibrant fruit from red cherry, raspberry to blackberries with a hint of spice underneath. The front palate is packed with sweet bright fruit with the same red cherries and blackberries on the nose following through to the flavours. The soft tannins give this wine lovely mid-palate weight with a dark cocoa finish. This is a vibrant, fruit driven wine that can be cellared or enjoyed in its youth.

Domain Road Dry Riesling 2016

$26.00 $23.40

Pale straw with clear hues, our Water Race Riesling is a dry style with balanced crisp acidity. Aromas of lime and mandarin dominate on the nose with hints of floral and ginger. Lemon, lime and stonefruit flavours show on the palate leading to a long mineral finish. An excellent food wine, full of flavour, so it can hold its own against quite strong flavoured cuisine. Also excellent with fish and seafood.
