Wine Of The Week

Mahana 2014 Clays & Gravels Riesling, Nelson $30 Concentrated, tangy Riesling with lime, white flowers and chalky mineral flavours. Taut, linear wine with energy and purity. Bone-dry Riesling that’s deliciously drinkable now but could become even more interesting with bottle age. (Screwcap) Score: 95 ★★★★★

Under $40

Saint Clair 2015 Wairau Reserve Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough $33.90 Big, rich and very textural Sauvignon Blanc with a mix of passionfruit, grapefruit, green capsicum, guava and a suggestion of mineral character. Impressively concentrated wine with an equally impressive and lengthy finish. (Screwcap) Score: 95 ★★★★★ –
