Winemaker's Notes

The color is vibrant with a crisp and subtle green hue. The bouquet is of dried herb and gunflint compliment gooseberry, passionfruit and pungent grassy aromas. On the palate there is flaovro of lime zest and white floral notes are framed by a structured yet supple mid palate. Mouth-watering acidity with the Awatere's signature mineral background complete the persistent finish.
Food Matching: Panfried calamari with coriander served with sourdough bread.

Critical Acclaim

"Blue-gold award at 2010 Sydney International Wine Competition; a clean bouquet with passionfruit and citrus aromas foreshadows an intense and lively palate with a lingering finish; great bargain."
