Judges Comments:

One of New Zealand’s most successful wine companies founded in 1961 by Sir George Fistonich on a five-hectare plot in Mangere, Auckland. With a strong focus on quality, here is another Gold medal to add to their overflowing trophy cabinet. Brimming with flavours of soft ripe tropical fruits, great balance, texture and a long finish.

Pairing Recommendation:

The refreshing acidity is a terrific complement to Vietnamese and Thai, antipasti and pre dinner nibbles, Warm beet salad, goats cheese tart, chips and dips and pizza or pasta. New Zealand green lipped mussels are a spectacular pairing, as are green vegetables, like courgettes, fresh peas and of course new season’s asparagus, which are also great for a picnic or light lunch. Pair with cheeses like mozzarella, feta and goats cheese.
