A super lineup of wines on the free tasting barrel this weekend

Waipara Hills Pinot Gris

This winemaker's on a roll and their Pinot Gris is the top of the line, and crazy value at just $14.99 - you'd pay $16.99 at Auckland's largest wine retail chain! Winner of a Gold and the Trophy at the NZ International Wine Show just weeks ago, this Pinot Gris will make you very happy! Aromas of crisp red apple, quince and a hint of nougat pour off the glass and then you'll get apple, pear and nougat flowing through the palate finishing with a touch of ginger and crisp acidity. Lovely with Asian dishes such as mildly spiced Szechuan chicken.

Matua Lands and Legend Sauvignon Blanc

A massive medal tally with Trophy at Sydney, and gold medals at New York, Decanter, Marlborough, San Francisco & Hong Kong. It's beautifully balanced with layers of flavour. Intriguing aromas of smoky pineapple & dried sage leap from the glass. The palate is brimming with ripe blackcurrant & zesty citrus... Refreshing & mouth wateringly luscious. All this flavour and prestige for just $19.99. Elsewhere it's up to $29.99!

Mission Estate Syrah

$16.50 at the cellar door, this wine is great value here at Manly Liquor at just $13.99. The nose exhibits vibrant dark berry notes with good spice and black pepper overtones. The fruit driven palate has a soft texture and good persistence. This wine is made in a medium bodied style with good freshness that shows off the great flavours of Syrah grown in Hawke’s Bay without the strong influence from maturation in oak barrels. Come in and make your own tasting notes!

Mission Estate Reserve Cabernet Merlot

We're still selling from the best ever 2013 vintage with this wine! $29 at the Cellar Door, we've got it for you at just $19.99. This is a must buy a case and cellar it kind of deal! It has vibrant colour and classic rich dark berry and oak aromas that are all so reminiscent of great Hawke’s Bay reds. There are hints of cassis, tobacco and plum on the nose. The palate has great structure with an abundance of fine ripe tannins. The wine in the mouth has full mid palate weight and texture with the oak component understated, allowing fruit to shine through on the finish. It offers cellaring potential aging gracefully for five years or longer.
