Exclusive

Roll over: All the Amen Break wines are made with minimal winemaker intervention and a healthy dose of soul.

Amen Break are by brothers Matt and Steve Harrop.

We work with the rhythm of each vintage to find fruit that best expresses the season. Our Pinot Noir was grown at Zebra Vineyard on the northern elevations of the Bendigo area in Central Otago.

All the Amen Break wines are made with minimal winemaker intervention and a healthy dose of soul. To that we say Amen, Brother. 

The Amen Break is a legendary six second, four bar drum solo performed by Gregory Sylvester “G. C.”. Coleman in the song “Amen, Brother” performed by the 1960s funk and soul outfit The Winstons.

The Amen Break has become the most sampled drum beat in musical history. It is considered the foundation rhythmic beat for the much of the electronic musical genre (Trip Hop, Drum ’n Bass, Jungle, Psych Trance etc.) that exploded in the late 80’s and early 90s of last century.

Desert Heart is one of New Zealand’s distinguished boutique vineyards on the iconic Felton Rd, Bannockburn, Central Otago. Desert Heart’s award-winning wines are grown on our own Felton Road Vineyards, which display the bright fruit characteristics of classical Pinot Noir. The name Desert Heart was chosen to pay tribute to the land, because Pinot Noir, more than any other grape reflects where it is grown, and to the historical reference to the name of Bannockburn, “Heart of the Desert”, from the gold rush era and due to its atypical climatic conditions.

Roll over: Looking for the finest grapes with which to craft the finest wines, Albert Bichot has gradually bought vineyards in the most sought-after locations in Burgundy.

A brooding and inexpressive nose mixes notes of red pinot fruit with a lovely array of spice and floral elements, in particular violets. There is a wonderfully refined mouth feel to the seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that are finer but less obviously mineral-inflected than the Sentiers on the impressively persistent finish. This is very "Chambollesque" in style and should drink well young as well as reward 8 to 10 years of cellaring. BH90-93

Roll over: The pride of Tasmania

Tolpuddle Vineyard was established in 1988 and has gone from strength to strength over the past decade since being sold to the team behind Shaw + Smith in the Adelaide Hills. The vineyard is just outside Richmond in the Coal River Valley has light silica soil over sandstone that produce wines of style and elegance. This is undoubtedly one of Tasmania's finest pinots - and sells out soon after release. It is aromatic, medium bodied with savoury and spice notes and impeccable length. Vigorous vineyard work results in a wine of vigour.

Roll over:  A venture between the Hyde Family of Napa Valley and the de Villaine Family of DRC in Burgundy

The nose is intense but delicate, with complex perfumy aromas of violet and rose peddle, small berry fruits, earthy undertones, and a with a touch of spice. On the palate, the wine shows bright acidity and mineral components throughout, intermixed with delicate floral and fresh blue fruit notes. The tannins are layered, soft, and precise. The finish builds energy and focus and its length promises a cellar-worthy wine.

Producing some of the most coveted grapes in Napa Valley, Hyde Vineyard has gained distinction for its single vineyard wines. Extending this single vineyard approach, they endeavor to bring transparency to the unique expression of the Hyde Vineyards’ terroir.

Roll over: The meeting of two winemakers from the two hemispheres.

A collaboration wine between Burgundian Francois Millet and Prophet’s Rock’s Paul Pujol. This makes a very harmonious impression on the nose with red cherries, spice, hazelnuts, red florals, fresh tobacco and light earthy nuances. The palate has a very neatly coiled and layered feel with tannins that unfurl and lift the finish. Red-cherry and pastry flavors are delivered in vibrant mode. Some blueberries, too. Drink or hold. – James Suckling

Prophet’s Rock know that great wines begin in the vineyard. That’s why they embrace an approach to winemaking that shares the splendour of the place rather than pronounced winemaking characteristics. The result Iconic wines that invoke Central Otago’s striking, unforgettable beauty.

Roll over: This carefully cellared reserve wine is only released a minimum of five years after harvest.

The bouquet of this wine reminds me of Burgundy because of the earthy, layered, mineral and floral combinations. The wine is also still incredibly youthful, poised and fruit centric on the palate with red and black cherry, freeze-dried raspberry and a whisper of plum. Poised, vibrant, nervous and still developing with a long intense finish. Decant for service, drinking best from late 2021 through 2029+. – Cameron Douglas 97 Points

This is a very perfumed and gently spicy style that offers plenty of raspberry, boysenberry and red-cherry aromas with red flowers, pepper and leafy notes, too. The palate offers quite an intense, fresh and elegant feel with vibrant acidity driving succulent red-cherry flavor. Smooth tannin texture. Attractive detail. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)
