Fresh and stimulating. Green, grassy notes...
Cuisine Magazine (N.Z) - FIVE STARS AND BEST BUY.
Floral scents are the pathway to an intense, effusive mouthful. The fruit is expressive - fresh apples, passionfruit and honeydew melon come to mind, supported by a well defined line of acidity. Prefect with salmon quiche.
Viva - New Zealand Herald - VIVA TOP 50 - BEST BUDGET BUYS.
BEST BUDGET BUYS - Investigate the increasing array of second-tier labels produced by good wineries and you can find some well made wines that are easy on the wallet. Mount Vernon is a lower priced range produced by Lawson's Dry Hills, which offers an attractive mouthful of passion fruit, melon and zesty lime, laced with fresh herbs.
