92/100 Vinous "Light yellow. Intensely perfumed scents of lime, lemongrass, ginger and yellow rose. Racy, finely etched citrus and floral flavors are complemented by deeper notes of anise pastille and honey. A strong mineral quality adds spine and extends through the long, spicy, penetrating finish. This will be even better with a bit of bottle age, which will add flesh and depth."
The brilliant pink hue greets you first and is backed up with soft notes of strawberries, quince and peaches. On the palate that classic Central Otago Rosé delicate structure is met with a touch of acidity for a refreshing finish.
A restrained nose, with hints of citrus and honey, underscored by an inherent flintiness and developing aged Riesling characters. The palate is restrained with lemon and lime notes. The mid palate is warm with a hint of spice and a touch of honey. The wine ends with a crisp acidity and bone dry. A real Riesling drinkers Riesling.
Elegantly evokes its unique Martinborough terroir. The nose is cherry, spice and understated oak, the generous flavours showing excellent depth of fruit with a touch of earthiness and a fine tannin structure.
