Winemaker's Notes

This wine shows lifted passionfruit and citrus notes. The palate exhibits the same fine fruit flavors with an underlying flinty notes typical of Awatere Valley fruit.

"Lime, mineral and green mango flavors mingle enticingly in this tart, lively wine, lingering on the beautifully formed finish, echoing with a hint of passion fruit."
