With a diverse range of climate and sub soils, from sub-tropical Northland to the most southerly grape growing region of Central Otago, it is no wonder that New Zealand is now producing the international varieties found in Europe with a great deal of success, no longer "just" Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. All the wine growing regions benefit from the moderating effect of their maritime climate, with a long ripening period with abundant sunshine hours and cool night-time temperatures, enabling the top quality producers to deliver wines with purity, vibrancy and a real sense of terroir.
The nose displays aromas of tropical fruit and ripe pear, with herbaceous notes and a hint of chalky minerality. The palate is textural and rich with subtle notes of lemon zest and passion fruit. The finish is crisp and dry. Delicious with all types of seafood and summer salads, or enjoy by itself as a refreshing aperitif.more
