"Fabulously fruited and instantly appealing, the bouquet shows lemon curd, lime peel, nectarine and jasmine characters. The palate is concentrated and focused, displaying excellent fruit intensity and depth, brilliantly complemented by subtle sweetness and bright acidity. Wonderfully styled and highly enjoyable. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2018

A wine with lovely lifted floral characters on the palate with a fresh crisp acidity and a hint of ripe citrus burst to finish. A wine to enjoy now or cellar until 2026.

It was a challenging growing season. A longer than average flowering period with a cooler summer temperatures. Harvest started later than usual with careful vineyard management the fruit was looking great. Midway through vintage the region experienced several tropical storm systems, which doubled the average rainfall for this period, but the selected grapes came through in surprisingly good condition.

Mt. Arthur is one of the highest mountains in the Kahurangi National Park, standing at 1,795 metres above sea level it makes a majestic backdrop to the Kahurangi Estate vineyard. The Mt. Arthur label has been selected for our premium "Reserve" range of wines which stand out for their superior quality and structure.

Food Pairing: A perfect aperitif or well matched with cheese.

Understated and always underestimated! Nelson area wines are never held up against the rest of NZ, as their own unique tastes. Certainly overdue to talk ‘Nelson region wines’ ...

A lighter alcohol level makes it easy drinking.
