This wine is all about purity. It's an exuberant, complete expression, dry in style and bursting with those flavours you expect from the variety - peardrop, citrus, a hint of cinnamon. John Belsham enjoyed the texture: "It's buxom almost Rubenesque."
100% Chardonnay from a single site in Rapaura, a vintage expression that exudes class, and another New Zealand Blanc de Blancs style making the French nervous. Delicate, but persistent too, and superbly balanced.
Pale Straw in colour. Extremely playful and lively, with an aroma that is inclined to leap out of the glass at you with the slightest provocation. Breeders Comments: A youthful, kittenish wine, full of zing and zip. The body is long and racy, equally happy relaxing on its own in the sun on a warm afternoon or engaging in boisterous interplay with fresh garden vegetables or seafood.
Fresh watermelon pink in colour with an enticing subtle crushed ice blue hue, this inaugural Wither Hills Rose is refreshing in style with perfumed aromas of wild strawberries and fresh raspberries, reminiscent of summer berries. The palate is elegant with a delightful creamy texture and superb length balanced nicely with bright acidity. This dry style of Rose is a perfect accompaniment to those beautiful summer days.
Perrier-Jouët's InBloom Fresh Box is an imaginative, limited-edition chill case by talented young French designer Benjamin Graindorge. As its creator Benjamin Graindorge so eloquently put it: "I like to imagine the InBloom Fresh Box protecting its precious sap like a bud enveloped in mystery, ready to open and reveal a flowers fragile petals." This champagne gift is available online and in store, delivery New Zealand-wide. Exclusive to Glengarry.
While rightfully lauded for her brilliant whites, Jules is no slouch with the red grapes. Wild berries on the nose, with spicy notes layered over subtle hints of oak. Wild fermentation and extended lees maturation have added complexity and texture to the bright and poised red fruit characters.
Classic peach and stonefruit notes are tinged with Gris' floral aromatics, the palate rich, complex and sporting a lively texture. Currently drinking at its vibrant best, this'll partner well with white meat roasts, particularly pork or poultry.
