    JAW. DROPPER. THIS DEAL MAY CAUSE PANIC BUYING! One of the white wine bargain buys of the year….final stocks! The 2016 went gangbusters, wait ’til you try this stunning 2015! Five Star rated Central Otago Riesling crafted to sell for $23 – now slashed to $9.99 (in exchange for us nabbing every last box they had!).

    This is a banging value for money, medium-dry, succulent Central Otago Riesling! A label refresh means this premium Otago producer has slashed stocks of their 5 Star, 94/100 rated Central Otago Riesling – and boy are you in for a treat with this one. It was originally crafted to sell at the $23 mark, more recently we’d had it for $16.99 on special, and now in exchange for clearing them out we’re able to get it at this absolute stunning $9.99 price!

    This 2015 vintage is a beauty for the money and got the big thumbs up from local critic Sam Kim, who reviewed it at the end of 2019…

    5 Stars, 94/100 (Sam Kim)
    “This is delightfully expressed on the nose showing apricot, lime zest, mandarin and subtle spice notes, followed by a flavoursome palate that is succulent and lively with attractive sweetness and refreshing acidity. Up front and highly enjoyable. Style: Medium-dry. At its best: now to 2024.”

    Kalex are a premium Central Otago producer founded by Alex Kaufman, a Polish American businessman, entrepreneur and holocaust survivor. He arrived in the US with nothing but the clothes on his back and a quarter in his shoe. His later success in business and love for wine lead him to NZ and specifically Central Otago, where he started the Kalex label.

    At a slightly lower alcohol of just 9.5% this makes a great anytime tipple. It’s already got 6 years under its belt and while Sam reckons you can drink it up to 2024, Riesling is well known for its awesome cellaring potential. We wouldn’t be surprised to see it go longer than that. But heck, a delicious white at this silly low price probably isn’t going to last in anyone’s cellar!
