4.5 Stars Silver Medal - NZ international wine show

91/100 Points Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2018
"Delightfully charming and elegantly fragrant, the bouquet shows lemon peel, white flesh stone fruit, jasmine and lime zest characters. The palate is finely textured and linear, wonderfully complemented by bright fruit intensity and whispering sweetness, finishing long and refreshing. It is drinking beautifully already. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2018

Kahurangi Estate is a family owned boutique winery specialising in hand-made wines. The vineyard was first planted in 1973 and has the oldest commercial vines in the south Island. Kahurangi is a Maori word with a number of translations, two being “treasured possession” and “precious jewel”. The logo is a stylised reproduction of the Nikau palm, which proliferates in the valleys and west coast beaches of the Kahurangi National Park. The Nikau palm was a treasured source of food and flax to the indigenous Maori tribes in the South Island.

An inviting wine with lovely ginger and apple blossom aromas. A fresh citrus palate leads to a well balanced finish. classic Moutere clay minerality.

A great food wine.
