The Wine:

A delicious off dry style from a cooler vintage for Central Otago. Whole bunch pressed, fermentation in a mixture stainless steel barrels and tanks, wild yeasts, no temperature control and aged on gross less for 3 months. RS 10g/l

Floral and citrus aromas, flavours of kaffir limes and grapefruit, some initial sweetness underpinned by herbal mineral characters and ending dry with refreshing acidity. 12 % alc, medium weight in an off dry style.

The Review:
Mike Bennie, The Wine Front - 95pts
"This is no slouch. It has texture and weight but insane acidity and purity under the sluice of almond nuttiness and light herbal etch. Stacks of bright green apple, soft but fresh, lots of pink grapefruit juice and exceptional length that finishes pretty but with sorbet-like dryness and vitality. Fruitiness tempered well. It’s a class act. So delicious to drink, thirst-slaking and stacked with personality. Benchmark stuff."
