Description

  • Off-dry style
  • Peach & mango
  • Floral notes
  • Fleshy texture

"It’s fresh and inviting on the nose showing yellow peach, mango, fig and floral aromas. The palate is equally attractive with juicy fruit intensity and fleshy texture, leading to a lingering refreshing finish. Wonderfully harmonious and delectably expressed. A blend of Gewurztraminer, Gruner Veltliner and Riesling. At its best: now to 2025" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"An intriguing blend with both varieties contributing to the gentle floral and tropical fruit flavours. A perfect balance of subtle sweetness and fruity acidity leads to a dry-ish finish. A restrained wine with a pleasingly soft texture" Bob Cambell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Jan 2022

Hand harvested in small ripe parcels, each variety was gently crushed and allowed to naturally evolve with the Gruner Veltliner, and Riesling fermented in new Acacia puncheons. The three wines were then blended together and kept on the original Gewurztraminer yeast lees enhancing palate weight and giving the wine a fleshy texture, leading to a super lingering finish.

The limited release project pays homage to this beautiful part of the world and involves our philosophy of making the best white blend possible each vintage, which means the unique blend will never be the same.

The Waihopai Valley is one of the sunniest and driest areas of New Zealand. In true pioneering spirit of the wine-growing subregion, Misty Cove vintner, Andrew Bailey has ventured once again into innovative territory by producing an extraordinarily elegant white blend that stands out above the rest.
