WS 90pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: This refreshing white is generous with its melon, apricot and mineral aromas and flavors, finishing with lime and herb notes that don't quit. Drink now. A delicious wine with crisp fruit flavours of passionfruit, gooseberry and grapefruit.The fruit for this wine was sourced from several vineyards within different sub regions throughout Marlborough. The most significant portion has come from the prestigious lower Wairau area, renowned for its concentration of aroma and fruit, with the balance coming from the classic Rapaura area. The fruit was carefully monitored throughout maturity and the harvested once it had reached optimum f lavour development and ripeness. Transported to the winery with haste and pressed off with minimal skin contact, the resulting juice was cool fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness and zing.
