Munslow's is a specialist wine shop right in the heart of Dunedin. We are independent from other retailers with a lot of experience in the trade, so we are able to sell virtually any wine that is available in New Zealand. Munslow's has an excellent range of New Zealand and Australian wines at very competitive prices—no 'price fixing' with us! We also stock a good range of European wines.

  • Our picks of the month page is our chance to tell you about what we think are the best wines in the shop;
  • The recently tasted wines page will always have this month's wines at the top, but we will accumulate wines across the year so you can always look back to them;
  • The newsletter page will contain links to pdf versions of our latest decanter club monthly posting;
  • The links page will take you to other wine places on the web that we think are worth a visit.
This page will will always contain this month's special events: the tastings we bring to Dunedin to tantalize your palate!

What's Coming Up at Munslow's:

John Kemble: Kemblefield & Kawarau Estate Thursday 24th June $15.00

Fantastic line-up of wines. Many of you will have met the exuberant character of John Kemble, owner and winemaker of this Hawkes Bay winery. John will show his stunning Reserve Zinfandels from 2000 and 2002, plus his Reserve Malbec/Merlot, reserve Cabernet and the Distinction Merlot 2000 & 2002.

These will be topped off by the fantastic Kawarau pinots 2001 & 2003. We have raved about these wines for years, so will be interesting to compare the 2 vintages.

Clair Mulholland: Orlando Wyndham and Framingham Thursday July 1st $15.00

Framingham has done so well internationally and locally with their superb Marlborough Rieslings and Savvy's. These will contrast well with the Australian reds that Clair will present from the excellent Orlando Wyndham range to warm the night up. After all it is past the shortest day and with this time cold weather. On the good side spring is just around the corner. These wines will be good to consider for your cellar.

Mark Borrie: Central Otago and other choices Thursday 15th July $15.00

Mark is one of the regular decanter Club wine tasters and has taken wine up with a passion. He and his partner have planted some grapes in the Alexandra region and so has an excellent working knowledge of wines from the area. he's unsure as to which wines he will be tasting, but I'm sure this will be a very good and he will be able to give you an excellent insight into the foibles of setting up a vineyard!!

Sue Henderson: Grant Burge Wines Thursday 28th July $15.00

This has got to be one of the premium wineries in South Australia, with totally awesome wines from their lower label Shiraz through to their star wines. They consistently get 5 stars for their wines. They are mostly hefty big reds with high alcohol, so please reconsider bringing your car to the tasting.

Mark's Mugshot
Mark has unfortunately moved on from Munslow's (and, indeed, NZ) and is now working in Melbourne. He still contributes regularly to the Munslow's community via the "mutterings from Mark" column in our newsletter. Mark has traveled extensively throughout New Zealand vineyard regions; also indulging in wine travel in Australia and California. He also remains the repository of much of the world's useless wine trivia. When not drinking wine, Mark collects cartoons, makes home-brew beer, studies Swedish, and tries to avoid doing anything remotely D.I.Y around the house.
