Description

"This is stylishly expressed and elegantly composed; the delicately fragrant bouquet shows mandarin, lemon peel, white stone fruit and apple blossom characters, leading to a finely textured palate that is linear and attractively fruited. The wine offers wonderful purity and vibrancy, making it a fabulous anytime wine. At its best: now to 2019" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2017

Aromas of fresh citrus including sweet lime and a hint of orange blossom leap from the glass.  On the palate fresh bursts of lime and nectarine combine with a pleasing mineral tone adding complexity and a refreshing mouth-feel.

Sourced from carefully selected vineyard sites in Marlborough’s Omaka and Awatere Valleys, this wine is lightly bodied in style. A wine for immediate drinking although will remain at its best for two to three years from vintage date.

Food Pairing: Drink as an aperitif or combine with fresh seafood or chicken.
