Huia Single Vineyard Marlborough Botrytis Riesling 2011 $29 (375ml)
There’s a thrilling tension in the interplay of the sweetness of this botrytised dessert wine and its cut of crisp lemony acidity, supporting notes of fleshy apricot, herbs and florals. (Certified organic.)

Quartz Reef Methode Traditionnelle Central Otago Rosé NV $35-$38
Super-fine and unequivocally elegant, Quartz Reef’s sparkling rose is consistently top of the sparkling pinks with its creamy palate of fine-spun raspberry and strawberry fruits, crisp citrus and subtle nutty yeasty edge. (Certified Biodynamic.)

Rock Ferry Blanc de Blancs Marlborough 2009 $40
Impressive bubbles from this Marlborough-based organic producer made in a complex, rich and full-bodied style in which robust notes of nut, rye grain and spice are cut by a vibrant line of grapefruit acid. (Certified organic.)
