The colour was a pale-medium greenish gold. The bouquet showed sharp citrus tropical fruit. The taste had a citric acid start, tropical fruit, and a crisp clean finish. This wine was quite pleasant, but didn't have as much varietal character as a Marlborough wine.


Note 1 I am not really a wine expert (just an enthusiastic amateur), so please don't take my recommendations as anything more than a rough guide to these wines. I can take no responsibility if you buy a lot, on my recommendation, and then regret it!

Note 2 You may not agree with my evaluation of these wines as a lot of this is quite subjective. I tend to put a lot of emphasis on complexity and intense characteristic flavours and bouquet, so if you disagree you might just have different priorities.
