A fruit explosion of five enticing grape varieties from four famous regions which create a vinous harmony, yet their identity will remain a mystery. This intriguing blend reflects the essence of New Zealand’s cool climate, fruit expressive wine styles - myriads of crisp citrus and stone-fruits, subtle spice and lime zest. Mandarin, white peach, and verbena floral aromas dance around the nose. The palate begins rounded and full, packed with apricots, green apple and hints of cardamom. The richness is then enlivened by crunchy, fresh acidity which adds length to the palate and persistence on the tongue. What a Summer wine should be - decadent yet refreshing. Pure winemaking mischief.
