Judges Comments:

If you’re looking for that last minute dinner party wine, the one where you need to impress, cover all the bases of acceptable flavours and complete the illusion that you’re in control of your life, then here is the wine. Pale yellow with white peach and balanced vanilla oak, the palate is creamy with ripe stone fruit and a striking tension between the fruit, acidity and tannins, creating a seductive harmony. Great length and a fabulous food match.

Pairing Recommendation:

A super versatile wine that enhances all sorts of foods from the Sunday roast, pot-luck dinners, Mexican dishes, burger and ribs, pizza and pasta, as well as light lunches, savoury salads and of course picnics. Pair it with meaty and oily fish like salmon, tuna, hapuka and scallops, crayfish and crab as well as grilled mushrooms. Perfect with chips and dips, antipasti, smoked salmon, pre-dinner nibbles and cheese, particularly mozzarella, brie, camembert and feta.
