Product Description

Pale yellow straw. Very delicate floral nose. Almost sherbet like. Think lime and lemon blossom, white peach and grapefruit. The medium weighted palate has lovely natural texture thanks to the concentration from vines approaching maturity, rather than sugar. In fact this is easily the driest version of this wine we have tried. Tart at the opening with its sour grapefruit and green apple acidity and flavours, it softens to show more pithy citrus, pear and peach tones. The concentration and acidity combine for an incredibly long back-of-throat finish. The dryness here will confront a few, especially those used to the NZ scale of ‘dryness’.
