Mid Price Magic
Villa Maria Cellar Selection Marlborough Dry Riesling $17.99
Clean, crisp, crunchy lime and riverstone minerality coming through.  Zippy, cleansing and loaded with lemon.  Often discounted and definitely a great start to a journey into dry riesling - brilliant stuff.

Summerhouse Marlborough Pinot Gris 2014 $18
Punchy pear and juicy peach flavours are smashed together with crunchy apple and spicy quince characters to create a lush, slightly sweet, fruit-packed taste sensation.  It's a white wine that'll really please the crowds and appeal to those who like a splash of sweetness.  It's got real personality and smile-factor.

Treat Yourself
Moana Park Gimblett Road Chardonnay 2013 $45
I love this style of chardonnay so much!  Inside the bottle is a bunch of sexy butterscotch, mango and grapefruity goodness all dusted with cinnamon toast notes.  It's silky and succulent to sip, beautifully balanced and boasting almond meal and cashew characters.  Full, rich and generously proportioned, it's a complex, charming chardonnay.  Great stuff.
