Poderi Crisci Zefiro

A new, exciting addition to our range. A prosecco style sparkling pinot grigio with the most flirtatious fine bean that dances over the palate. Crisp, dry yet flavoursome, a great way to start the day.

Poderi Crisci Ombra

An exciting Sparkling Rose with a fine yeasty, fresh bakery character reminiscent of Champagne. Floral nose contains hints of wild strawberry, peach nectarine and cassis. On the Palate, fine beads, very refreshing dry aperitif style. Wild Blackberry and Peachy with a great mouth feel and good length.

Poderi Crisci Rose (Merlot Predominant)

A great example of a Merlot Bianco style wine in the fashion of the southern French and Italian Roses. From Merlot grapes, the Rose displays light summer fruits with a flinty earthy character. The Salmon blush hints at the body, light and playful, a fresh lively Rosé, with a great structure with a very refreshing palate, dry style with a lingering fresh finish to stand up to all great summer luncheons. .

Poderi Crisci Pinot Grigio

Subtle pale straw with mineral notes, pear, quince and honeydew melon on the nose. Hints of roses and Turkish delight starting to come through but still hidden by flinty minerality. Quite rich but also very focused, more pinot grigio floral character on the palate wixed with orange zest. Good mineral drive on the finish.

Poderi Crisci Arneis

Poderi Crisci proudly lines up against a select group of NZ vineyards producing this exciting and cheeky variety from the Piemonte region in the north of Italy. Arneis is a colloquial term, translating to “Little Rascal”, a wine that exhibits intense citrus notes with apple, pear and vanilla in a bone dry style. A refreshing wine that is best enjoyed with delicate seafoods, sunshine, and company. Poderi Crisci is currently producing the only Waiheke grown Arneis.

An elegant Chardonnay with a flirtatious light straw colour. Incredibly complex, flinty nose offering hints of freshly grilled nuts (almond) and marzipan alongside zests of citrus fruits.. A very finely structured wine with a good drive leading into a great lingering finish. An unmistakable Burgundian style Chardonnay.

Poderi Crisci “Viburno” (Merlot / Cabernet Franc / Montepulciano)

The Viburno exhibits a strength of flavor and aging potential, with more subtle tannins flirting with the palate. Intense dark fruits, leather and spicy notes are balanced with a smooth body and elegant full mouth feel. A special wine that is best appreciated with lamb and beef, but equally comfortable with a robust pasta.

Poderi Crisci Merlot Riserva  (Merlot 100%)

The Merlot Riserva, offers a very concentrated, intense nose, full of black fruit and cigar box with leather and burnt cocoa, showing great Merlot concentration. An equally rich palate offers ripe black berry and also cherries, cigar box fine cedary tannins and chocolate, cocoa after taste, very big wine with great elegance. A very refined and balanced Merlot with great aging potential.
