  • Bohemian Wairau Sauvignon Blanc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of peas and tea leaves on the nose. Bright pineapple and lemon on the palate. This wine made for a great reduction, and it tastes good too. Read More

  • Cupcake Cabernet 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Great every day Chardonnay - buttery but not too heavy on the palate. Very drinkable and would be a crowd-pleaser at a party Read More

  • Goldwater Sauvignon Blanc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This embodies everything you would want from a NZ Sauv Blanc. Grass, cat pee and grapefruit. Read More
