Wine Review: This pale yellow colored wine opens with a very fragrant and traditional New Zealand styled bouquet. The aromas are gooseberry and grapefruit with a hint of lime. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and tangy. The flavor profile is lime with notes of grapefruit and a touch of minerality. The finish is quite dry and refreshing. This wine would pair well with quiche Lorraine or bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Clear and bright with pale green and straw highlights. Fragrant and intense with passion fruit, grapefruit and lime on the nose. An excellent balance between crisp acidity and concentration with a long, clean finish.

Organic status: not organic
