Ash Ridge Premium Wines are a small range of wines that offer the best of both worlds. The wines are fantastic examples of the varietals that are ready for drinking upon release, but that will reward cellaring for those with the ability and patience.

Premium Viognier 2015                                                $32 per bottle

Aroma’s of fresh picked apricots and sweet spice. This wine is lush with summer fruit sweetness, floral and perfumed. Balanced acidity gives lovely structure and length.

Premium Malbec 2014                                                   $32 per bottle

4 Stars Michael Cooper

Big concentrated plum flavours with spice and generous tannins. This is a big juicy wine in classic Malbec style, with defined Hawke’s Bay fruit, that simply asks the question, why do more wineries not make straight Malbec?

Premium Syrah 2014                                                       $32 per bottle

Aroma’s of dark blackcurrant and boysenberry, the palate is soft, lush and silky. Full of big primary fruit with underlying savoury characters and a rich layer of integrated toasty oak, this wine will develop to its full potential in 4-7 years.
