From the moment the screw cap is removed there is an incredible fruity and spicy aroma which intices you in and gets the gastric jucies going. Pear, and rich peachy and tropical flavours with spice and body. The length is suburb and it has lots of complexity due to the use of aged oak barrels for aging part of the wine and aging on its natural yeast deposit. I bought a bottle for $NZ 15.95 which was a great buy. This wine could easily be aged for 4 to 5 years which will result in an interesting mix of maturation characters.
