This is essentially an “orange” wine. It shows an amber hue in the glass and has an interesting nose of beeswax and honey with marzipan, marmalade, citrus and bruised apple. It’s tangy and vibrant on the palate with notes of tart citrus and Meyer lemon and a complex, textured, somewhat tannic, highly acidic finish. Totally weird and wonderful wine.
This fine l’Acadie offers excellent aromatic character redolent with grapefruit, peach, green apple and green herbal notes. Bright green fruit flavours are rounded out with a distinctive squeeze of lime, slatey mineral and signature crisp acidity.
Dark in colour, full-bodied and soft texture; the cassis, raspberry, black pepper, violets, tobacco, vanilla and dark cocoa flow over the taste buds. Great persistency and ready to drink now or over the next 7 years.
Hints of toasted grain, fresh biscuits, caramel and a hint of smoky vanilla from aging in charred oak barrels. Quite mellow on the palate with a brisk, dry overall character. Some sweet grain and citrus-rind nuances as it trails off.
2015 marks Cloudy Bay's 30th anniversary as well as one of the driest summers on record for the country. Concentrated tropical fruits — kiwi, gooseberry, papaya, tangerine — rule from first whiff, alongside a tangy, potent base of meadow grass, green pepper and greengage. Lemon peel spikes the acidity up a few notches on this intense Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Not shy, and a great example of this type of Kiwi Sauvignon. Where is that blind tasting exam when you need one?
Made from 100% Garganega. Classic straw colour and lemon-scented nose. Lemon and acacia flavours on the dry medium-bodied palate. Soft and fruity up-front, but firm and minerally on the finish. Pairs very well with seafood.
This is the only sparkling wine produced on the island of Santorini. Made from 100% Assyrtiko and vinified via the traditional method, there are pinpoint creamy bubbles and aromas of mineral, apple, citrus and yeast. The palate possesses crisp acidity and excellent length.
