Regular price $29.95 Sale

Vibrant honeysuckle blossom intermingles with the headiness of papaya salsa, spiked with a pinch of lemon pepper. A bright, aromatic style with a palate that dances with a lively burst of lemon gelato – subtle sweetness and vivacious acidity harmonising to produce a wine of finesse and tension, with silky floral highlights and tropical succulence.
Made by the hugely respected Kevin Judd, founding winemaker at Cloudy Bay, the fruit for this stunning wine was sourced from mature vineyards in and around the Brancott Valley and the central Wairau Plains - an area noted for producing spectacular aromas – and the nose on this delicious wine is devilishly inviting. A bright, aromatic style with a palate that dances with a lively burst of lemon gelato – subtle sweetness and vivacious acidity skip in unison to produce a wine of finesse and tension, with silky floral highlights and tropical succulence. Well worth its price-tag and a fantastic example of New Zealand’s flourishing Riesling capacities.
