Pale silvery-yellow. Robust nose of passionfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry and lime shouts “New Zealand!”. Full-bodied and full-flavoured, cuts like a knife through smoked trout served with bitter radicchio. Will be drinking at its best in 2020.
Clear medium-deep yellow. Fairly powerful nose of gooseberry and passionfruit. Full-bodied, almost viscous. Almost sweet from packed grapefruit, papaya and more passionfruit. Drink up.
One of Costco’s house label wines. Clear pale silvery-yellow. Medium intensity nose of guava, gooseberry, lemon and rich mown grass. Light- to medium-bodied, with the essential New Zealand gooseberry and grapefruit flavours, but the attraction here is the bright, lemony acidity, with a bit of citrus oil bitterness on the finish. Refreshing and moreish. Value. Drink up.
Medium ruby colour with a lightly cedary, spicy, plum nose. It is medium-bodied, dry with flavours of ripe cherry and plum. A nicely balanced, easy drinking wine that works well with duck, lamb or veal.
Bright, pale straw colour with a passion fruit and citrus bouquet and notes of sweet grass; medium-bodied, crisply dry with green plum and gooseberry flavours; beautifully balanced and great length.
Bright straw in colour with a grassy, lightly floral nose of green plum and gooseberry; medium-bodied, crisply dry, green plum flavour with mouth-freshening acidity.
