New zealand is well known for its pinot noir. This wine is a blend of pinot noir grapes sourced from our vineyards in marlborough and hawkes bay. It is a medium red with aromas of plums, strawberries and mushrooms. On the palate there is dark cherries and the finish has hints of mushrooms. This wine is intended to be an easy drinking style, good to drink now but will cellar for 3 to 5 years. An ideal match for game and duck dishes. A good value wine.
Nice ripe and intense fruit flavours have produced this textural and weighty stoneleigh pinot gris. The palate has intense tropical fruit and subtle hoppy notes and a warm rich textural weight on the finish. This wine displays ripe tropical fruit notes with nashi pear and honeysuckle laced with subtle spicy notes. Serve slightly chilled on its own or with delicate white meat, pasta or seafood dishes. This is an excellent aperitif.
fruit for the sparkling shiraz is sourced predominantly from premium grape growing regions in south australia; namely mclaren vale and langhorne creek. Situated approximately 40kmsouth of adelaide, the capital of south australia, mclaren vale has a mediterranean climate. With winter dominant rainfall, low humidity and long warm summers that are tempered by the proximity to the gulf st. Vincent, mclaren vale has one of the most consistent climates in which to grow premium wine grapes. Located on the floodplains of the angas and bremer river about 70km south of adelaide, langhorne creek is one of the older wine growing regions in australia with the first vines planted in the 1850’s. So the sparkling is born: the result being a rich, luscious sparkling shiraz that is well balanced and destined to compliment pork and turkey or any occasion to celebrate!
Wine of New Zealand The ultimate expression of our minimal-intervention wine making philosophy, stoneleigh wild valley is crafted using fruit picked at optimum ripeness and is wild fermented by the micro-flora that occur naturally in the rapaura environment. This wine opens with aromas of stone fruit and summer meadow; clover, wild flowers and honey. The palate is mouth filling, with nectarine, apricot and citrus hints. The rich texture carries through to a soft, rounded finish with hints of pear. Try this wine with a warm goats cheese salad, lemon and garlic roasted chicken, or grilled pork loin. Light fruit based desserts such as baked apple with cinnamon cream will showcase the versatility of this wine. Alcohol content: 13.5%
Bright aromas of red cherry, berries and plum fruits with hints of anise and spice. Generously loaded with dark fruits, the palate is balanced by fine, supple tannins and lingering spice notes. A soft, round shiraz with great fruit length, generosity and drinkability.
Crisp apples from the hawke’s bay provide both the clouds & the silver lining in this refreshing cider from mac’s. This is a classically cloudy traditional style cider, smooth upfront with a fresh, slightly tangy finish. Fresh from the fridge, it’s so crisp you could take a bite out of it.
Ancient buffalo carved paths through the wilderness that led American pioneers and explorers to new frontiers. One such trail led to the banks of the Kentucky River where Buffalo Trace Distillery has been making bourbon whiskey the same way for more than 200 years. In tribute to the mighty buffalo and the rugged, independent spirit of the pioneers who followed them, they created their signature Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. This deep amber whiskey has a complex aroma of vanilla, mint and molasses. Pleasantly sweet to the taste with notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak, toffee, dark fruit and anise. This whiskey finishes long and smooth with serious depth.
