Brent Marris' winery continues the line of winning wines produced under his stewardship (think Wither Hills, located at the back of the Waihopai Valley). Upon opening, the vibrancy and the pungent nature of the fruit is immediately apparent, the balance on the palate precise, the length just right. A well crafted wine, pale lemon in colour and wonderfully vivacious. The nose has lashings of enticing green apple, fig, herb and citrus. Finely structured and well balanced, it has vivid fruit flavours, a dash of herbal nuances and a sassy aftertaste. An excellent food wine.
