Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of lime, melon, and guava mingle with herbal notes. Punchy citrus & guava flavors roll out to a long lingering finish. This wine shows great persistence of flavor.

About The Better Half:

George Elworthy, owner of The Better Half Wines, is an accomplished winemaker, having worked with distinguished company at Marlborough based producers Seresin Estate, Cloudy Bay, Allan Scott and Vavasour. He was also the founding winemaker at The Crossings and has been fortunate enough to learn from and experience a number of vintages in Italy. Certainly a career with an arc towards building character, in branching out with the development of his own brand, The Better Half, that wealth of experience is now on the table for the rest of us. The wine has been crafted with grapes sourced from the fairer side of vineyards in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys in Marlborough.
