Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw gold. Intensely aromatic and fragrant aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit, and rock melon with subtle citrus notes providing a further lift. This wine displays real fruit intensity without being aggressive. Rich ripe flavors meld with tropical and citrus nuances. It has a crisp mouth feel, is well balanced with an elegant, long finish.
My Notes:

About Goldwater:

The Goldwater Estate was established in 1978 by Kim & Jeanette Goldwater when they pioneered winegrowing in New Zealand on Waiheke Island.

Using traditional winemaking techniques, together with modern technology and the finest French oak, the Goldwaters produce handcrafted wines with vibrant fruit characters, harmonious balance, elegant structure and exceptional concentration.

The Goldwater family is dedicated to producing handmade wines with outstanding character and finesse.
