"Really expressive and lifted nose with pronounced grapefruit, pear-drop, elder flower and wet stones. Has richness, intensity of flavour and a long finish, balanced by a crunchy, herbal freshness. A complex , individualistic style. 91 POINTS Sam Kim | wineorbit.co.nz March 2021 This is delightfully fruited and fragrant on the nose showing peach, feijoa, kiwifruit and lemon zest aromas. The palate displays excellent fruit intensity with fine texture and juicy acidity, making it tasty and highly appealing"

91 Points - Cameron Douglas MS camdouglasms.com
"An alluring vibrant bouquet with tropical fruits and sweet citrus, fresh grassy herb layers a natural fresh appeal. Flavours of pineapple and fresh pears, apple and lemon then fresh green herbs. Plenty of acidity and a soft youthful spritz texture. Well made."

Winery note
"The grapes were picked in separate batches during late March from our own vineyards, the aim being to produce a spectrum of ripe yet zesty aromas and flavours in the finished wine. Due to the very hot summer, we were able to harvest earlier than usual, allowing the berries to retain good levels of natural acidity. The fruit was also cropped at a low level (approx. 7 tonnes per hectare) to add further concentration. After gentle pressing of the berries, the free run juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to help the wine express its varietal purity, with the wine being bottled shortly after.

The wine is pale lemon in colour, with vibrant tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit and lychees. Layered beneath there are hints of gooseberry, citrus and dried herbs. The palate is generous, yet remains fresh and lively, with a satisfying crisp finish."
