Old-fashioned hearty southern Rhône style loaded with perfumed ripe cherry, raspberry and clove supported by supple tannins and a splash of milk chocolate on the well-integrated finish. Deeply satisfying.
The Awatere Valley-sourced fruit means a more focused, delicate style than other kiwi Gris, so look for apple aromas and intense flavours with a long finish. A tremendously food-friendly wine, and very palate-cleansing with a cheese course.
Ripe aromas and flavours of crushed blueberries, black cherry and raspberry with hints of liquorice, mocha and vanilla; a lush texture, with the ripe fruit lingering on the fresh finish.
Captivates with complex floral, herbal and plum aromas. Impresses with bright acidity, elegant structure, medium-plus body and lithe, mouth-coating tannins, while bursting with red and black fruits. Lingering red liquorice leads to a very dry finish. Spectacular with roast suckling pig — especially the crackling!
Clear, very deep plum red. On the nose there are blackberry and blackcurrant aromas accompanied by stewed fruits and grilled meat. Full-bodied, with more juicy blackberry and cassis flavours in the mouth; well-balanced by the acidity and tannins.
Lifted tropical and rose petal precede a classic varietal palate of well-balanced fruit and acidity on a generous palate with flavours of lychee, peach and a hint of spice in the lingering close.
