After a discouraging 2021 vintage, and while the demand for NZ wines continue to increase, it’s no wonder these wines are becoming harder to find on the market!
Nelson, New Zealand
Aromas of freshly squeezed grapefruit, kiwi, freshly cut grass, and white flowers. The palate is refreshingly crisp, with lemon zest, gooseberry, jasmin and tropical fruit flavours. Great for hot weather and patios!
Pairing Suggestions: Perfect on it's own, but also so food friendly! Nice and crisp, cutting through any garlicky/buttery shellfish dish leaving your palate ready for every delicious bite! Cedar plank salmon with dill, lemon, and garlic would also be a winner. Thai cuisine with green curries, or Vietnamese salad rolls with peanut dip and cilantro. Otherwise Greek Soulvaki with tzatziki dip, light salads, chicken breast, goat cheese and even cantaloupe melon. (We told you it's food friendly!)
This vineyard and winery uses sustainable practices and is vegan friendly!
Nelson is NZ’s dark horse wine region. Located on the northwest tip of the south island, this is the hot value tip for the next decade for anyone who likes wine from Marlborough. Expert vineyard management is aided with modern systems like computer controlled drip fed water supply (if required). The control of water helps the vines to dig deeper into the soil which aids in stronger root systems. High sunshine hours and the cool, clear skies of autumn provide a slow ripening period that helps to retain the vibrant varietal flavours. They also use natural practices of grazing sheep for grass and weed control which perfectly sets up the harvest for premium and clean grapes to the winery.
