New Zealand — Marlborough • $32.95 • 89/100

This wine comes from a single vineyard in the lower Wairau Valley. It is watery white with glints of straw. Obviously Marlborough in nature, the nose suggests aromas of green pepper, green herbs, cut grass and sweat, over a core of grapefruit juice and bitter pith. The wine is dry with bright acidity that focuses the grapefruit elements, nudges the vegetal and herbal elements into the background, and drives into the grapefruit and salty-stony finish. Simple, direct and very Marlborough. • Tasted 2017-05-13 • LCBO id#483065 • Find it at your nearest LCBOPMA CANADA LTD. (Agent)
