Why do we love this case?

Featuring a couple of high scoring Marlborough rizzas as well as our little riesling baby, Fanny Limehead, this case is the answer to your luncheon prayers. A certified zest-fest, these are seriously top notch rizzas, so much so they even had our mild-mannered British wine buyer droppin’ F-bombs all over the place and that, more than anything, is a quality guarantee.

Each case contains two of each of the following:

Any juice that has wine buyer Andy dropping F-bombs gets me excited. Why? Because this smooth talking, even tempered English gent rarely loses his cool. Until the other day that is, when we were looking at this vibrant vino. With a slightly crazed look in his eye, he pulls it out of the fridge and as says “this is f**king awesome. It’s bright, slatey, spicy and citrusy, kinda like lemonade for grown ups. Sh*t it’s good.” He’s right, it’s totally smashable and after tasting it myself, I too was spitting out expletives. Right, I think it’s time for us to go wash our mouths out with soap.

Don’t you just love it when you instantly click with someone? This is exactly what happened when we met the team at Foxes Island. Led by legendary NZ wine entrepreneur John Belsham and branding expert Kelly Brown, they thrive on challenging the status quo, so we had a lot in common from the start. They make tiny amounts of standout boutique vino in the Awatere Valley and hand-pick who they work with, so we’re honoured to have been welcomed into the fold. And after tasting this brilliant, dry, complex and mouthwatering riesling, it totally confirmed the special nature of our new friendship. We think you’re going to get on great too.

Fanny ‘16 bestows her signature citrus kisses and leave us in a cloud of sweet, sweet jasmine. The intensity of fruit has been amplified again, without compromising that which we love most about Miss Limehead - her vibrant riesling acidity and pristine lime calling card. She’ll take you to her nirvana, tease you with hints of green apple, caress you with a palate of lychee and end on a long, persistent finish. If you’re smitten (we don’t blame you), take her home to your folks today otherwise keep her to yourself for a few more years and she’ll only get more honeyed with time.
