- AMISFIELD LOWBURN TERRACE RIESLING 2016
The 2016 Riesling from Amisfield’s Lowburn Terrace tastes like crisp granny smith apples with lemon and lime rind that dominate the nose.

The grapes were carefully selected by hand on the vines with only the golden bunches harvested.
- WAIPARA HILLS EQUINOX SAUVIGNON BLANC 2015
This Equinox Sauvignon Blanc has been handcrafted to capture the unique essence of the Waipara Valley. Aromas of crisp stone fruit and a touch of smoky oak leads into rich, mouth-filling flavours of nectarine and white peach, beautifully balanced with mineral acidity and a lingering finish. Fermented in French oak barriques (15 percent new) and then aged in the same vessels, it builds in a subtle texture and structure which works well with the riper, more sun exposed fruit used in this barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc. Delicious served with fresh shellfish.
