"Bright, pale yellow with a green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full and youthful, nuances of pear, stonefruit melded with an amalgam of spices, underlying a hint of flint. Medium-full bodied, off-dry to taste, ripe pear nuances, nectarines and tangerines interweave honey and five-spice. The mouthfeel is rounded and slightly oily with a soft-textured phenolic line. Lively acidity balance with the sweetness emphasized the honey note and contributed to a rich palate"

"Ripe, fleshy, fruity and varietal bouquet. Flavours of spicy pear and peach, some lemon and tart apple. A touch of white pepper and ginger spice along with honeysuckle and quince bring depth and complexity. Acidity and alcohol bring contrast and texture to the core of fruit. Balanced and well made with a fresh youthful finish"

"Intense, complex, lifted, quite unusual bouquet with biscuity aromas of chive flower sulphides underpinned by brown honey, talcum powder and rose petals. Big, rich, viscous with noticeable sweetness but plenty of flavour concentration. A generous style"

Crafted by the expert hands of the Donaldson family at the Iconic Pegasus Bay winery in Waipara.

The colour is deep lemon, with an inviting bouquet of ripe peach, nashi pear, and lemon curd, underlaid with mixed spice, honeysuckle, and a touch of flint. The mouthfeel is soft and rounded, supported by subtle sweetness and bright acidity that sets up for an impressively lengthy finish. Generous and flavourful yet delivered with finesse.
