Dark cherry and briar. On the palate medium + intensity - heavy spice. No other word for it but delicious. One of the jewels of Central Otago along with Block 3. A gift from a good mate who loves new world Pinot Noir, for my 70th last year. A gorgeous wine. — 15 days ago

Pale-medium ruby color.
Aromas of red cherry, strawberry, raspberry.
Dry. Flavors of red cherry, raspberry. Light tannins, high acidity, higher alcohol.

Oddball geeky wine for sure - cross of Riesling and Sylvaner from the remote Central Otago region.
Agree with the comments - certainly more Riesling on the nose (shower curtain, tropical fruit), with Sylvaner coming in more on the palate (green fruit, white pepper, herbaceous ness). A light, insanely drinkable wine with surprisingly layers of complexity (is that schisty minerality there? Indeed it is! Some green papaya and makrut lime? That too. Citrus and orchard fruit? Uh huh. And, dare I go there, kiwi? Yup!
There’s definitely some RS in there, but acidity is high enough that it holds it well.. Not much of a finish, but none needed.
I really enjoyed this wine; my dinner companion was more meh. — 18 days ago
