CRAFT: The grapes were harvested, destemmed, and gently crushed direct to press with minimal skin contact. The wine has a vibrant color despite having little time on the skins. The clarified juice was cool fermented with selected yeast strains to retain the primary varietal characters.
'Spinning Cone' technology is used to reduce the alcohol from a portion of the base wine. This is a process of low vacuum distillation that can target removal of alcohol without impacting the aroma of the wine. The alcohol is reduced to below 1% on approximately 60% of the final volume, with 40% of the base blended back to achieve a final alcohol level of 7%.
COLOR: Pretty pale pink color
AROMA: Bright aromas of watermelon with berry fruit and floral notes.
PALATE: Elegant and finely flavored on the palate with crisp acidity, fresh berry flavors and a dry finish.
CELLAR: Enjoy now, or within one to three years, with confidence.
APPELLATION: New Zealand
PAIRINGS: Ideal as an aperitif or summer sipper, this easy-drinking wine also pairs perfectly with lighter salads and other fare.
