    Winemaker's Notes:

    Hand tended in small batches from vine to bottle, low crops and ultra ripe fruit are utilised to produce premium wine that has become renowned for exhibiting intense fruit characteristics and classical elegance.

    Striking notes of nettles, pink grape fruit and fresh currants leap from the glass. The crisply defined palate is underlined with mine rality, lingering with black currant, guava and ripe pear. Savour with high-jinks and convivial company.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The folks at Wairu River have picked up their game, turning out a slightly austere, minerally 2009 that balances those atributes with hints of nectarine, melon and fig. It's medium-bodied, with a long finish.
    Best Buy.

    Bright and lively, delivering an effusive mouthful of pineapple, lime and apricot flavors that remain refreshing and balanced through the finish. Drink now.
