Winemaker’s Notes: We had to go out of our way to find the best place to grow Merlot. In the Hawke’s Bay we discovered perfection. From its abundant clear sunlight and ancient gravel soils, comes a Merlot that excites the senses with its fragrance, softness and elegant fruit intensity. The heroes in our Oyster Bay Merlot are always freshness of ripe fruit, spice, and soft tannins on the palate, offering a wonderful Merlot perfectly crafted to accompany any special moment.

Winemaker’s Notes: Our first vintage was coined ‘the elusive stuff of dreams’ by UK wine writer Giles Kime. Intriguingly, the older vines create youthful expressiveness, combined with seductive silky complexity and dark fruit flavors from our vineyards across the Marlborough region. Oyster Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir is elegant cool climate Pinot Noir at its best. Fragrant, soft and flavorful with aromas of ripe cherries and sweet fruit tannins that provide structure and length.

In Gainesville, we are blessed with many delicious, local IPA options. Apeiron IPA from Infinite Ale works is one of the newer ones by comparison. It was created by one of the most influential craft beer brewers to get the Gainesville craft beer scene started. Craig Birkmaier helped start the first craft brewery in Gainesville and continues to knock it out of the park with yet another mouth-watering IPA. And now it is our beer of the week!
94 Point James Suckling: Made by winemaker Jean Hoefliger of Alpha Omega, this is gorgeous white, fleshy and complex in anise, pear and briny green olive. The texture is fleshy and balanced in lasting acidity that provides a freshness and succulence of great distinction.
94 Point Robert Parker: The stunning 2014 Chardonnay offers up steely notes of white currants, citrus oil, nectarine and white peach. Medium to full-bodied, it displays terrific acidity and beautiful fruit purity that reminds me of some of the great Domaine Niellon premier cru Chassagne-Montrachets of the mid-1980s. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.

Winemker’s Notes: Bright blackberry, red plum, and raspberry fruit with notes of cranberry, black tea, spice and coriander seed. Luscious and balanced, with toasty oak and a long finish.
90 Point Robert Parker: The medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is spicy on the nose with cassis, plums and cedar scents. Medium-bodied and well balanced, it shows nice purity in the mouth with grainy tannins and good length.
