Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2021
Winery notes (NV)
"Refreshingly crisp with a delicate perlage, pale straw yellow color. Delicate and complex bouquet with fruity notes reminiscent of peach and green apple with secondary notes of acacia and lilac. Fresh and light on the palate, with balanced acidity and body; harmonious with a lingering aftertaste."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2021 (NV)
"It's fabulously expressed on the nose showing honeydew melon, apricot, lemon peel and floral aromas, followed by a succulent palate displaying excellent fruit purity together with refreshing acidity, finishing long and delicious."
4 Stars & 18/20 (90) Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, May 2021 (NV)
"Bright, pale yellow, even colour throughout. Moderate persistent bubbles. The nose is soft and creamy, with subtle nuances of apple, pear and stonefruit melded with delicate florals and creamy lees. Medium-light bodied, the fresh and crunchy aroma of green apple, nashi pear and peach leading the palate with lively acidity, unveil delicate florals, and linger on a creamy palate and subtle spice on the finish. The fruit has concentration and brightness, flow smoothly along a mouthwatering acid drive; creamy lees and a touch of sugar balanced the acidity. Match with sushi and Thai fare over the next 2-3 years. 100% Glera from Veneto and hills around Treviso area, fermented to 11% alc, Charmat method."
