With a diverse range of climate and subsoils, from the 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.
Lemon gold. Fresh-cut passionfruit, guava, lime curd, currant leaf and citrus zest. Powerful passionfruit, guava and limoncello flavours, and a rich texture with a very long finish. This wine will continue to develop rewarding flavour and bottle complexity with ageing. Seafood of all types (especially oysters), leafy summer salads, or as an aperitif.more
