Vintages from year to year are unique and express that particular year's growing conditions, but from established producers that consistently make exceptional wines, we can expect the quality that gives them iconic status year on year. Below is a list of just some of the wines we consider New Zealand Icons (There are plenty more worth the icon status, but we can't list them all).

Black Estate, Home Block Chardonnay - Bright and zesty with aromas of peach, nougat and hazelnuts. The Black Estate Chardonnay was the standout wine for Jancis Robinson in her recent tasting of New Zealand wines.

Te Mata Estate, Coleraine 2011

Huon Hooke describes the Coleraine as "arguably New Zealand's greatest red wine". This legendary Cabernet, Merlot blend has a lovely combination of fruit, tobacco and liquorice with an earthy layer. Stock is extremely limited.

Te Mata Estate, Coleraine 2015 is also available in limited quantities below:

Ata Rangi Pinot Noir 2016

Elegant and Complex, This Pinot Noir has quite a cult following from New Zealand Pinot fans. With notes of Red fruits, plums, red currant and fresh herbs with hints of truffle - Ata Rangi is iconic Martinborough.

Trinity Hill, Homage Syrah 2010

From pioneers of the Gimblett Gravels in Hawke's Bay, The Homage pays tribute to the Syrahs of the Rhone Valley. Powerful, elegant and fragrant with notes of pepper and spice. The 2010 is the pinnacle of a vintage for Hawke's Bay Syrahs that have been excellent drinking. New Zealand Lamb is a must.

Greywacke, Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Kevin Judd needs no introduction... Ripe summer fruits, citrus & floral notes. A classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Best enjoyed with fresh seafood and amongst friends!

Burn Cottage, Pinot Noir 2015

A harmony of red berry fruit flavours combined with wild thyme and poised tannins giving a long mouth feel. This Central Otago Pinot is a beautiful match for wild game and will develop over time in the bottle.

This is the Pinot Noir that won the recent Pinot Pundit event against Burgundian reds.
