On the nose, sour & sweet; pear, lemon, lime, green apple and white & yellow florals. Dry in style. Pear, green apple, underripe green melon with rhine, spice, canned pears, white peach, stones, spice that rises, delicate minerals with great acidity and finish. Photos of additional tasting areas, clean water photo of our drive outside Queenstown and their garden sign. New Zealand lake water is so much cleaner than ours.

A rich style. Barrel ferment/Batonage. Shows a bit more of the winemaking than the variety at times, but it drinks well.

Oak fermented and I suspect some lees, which makes for a full body honey and white flower parfait style wine...
