Toasty aromas of crème brulee and roasted cashew nut from time in oak, the palate opens with acid and ripe citrus flavours, leading into a creaminess from malolactic fermentation and time in oak, and the mineral finish. In 2017, Takahiro Koyama, who started his winemaking career at Mountford, took over as owner and started a new chapter in Mountford’s history.Origin: North Canterbury, New ZealandVarietal: Gewurztraminer 100%Alc. 14.0%. Residual sugar 12 g/LThis Gewürztraminer is from the second label for Pegasus Bay in Waipara, made from fruit sourced from contract growers in North Canterbury. Fermented using natural yeast in oak barrels, it is a beautiful golden colour in the glass. Exotic aromas and flavours on the nose and palate, showing tropical fruits with ginger and nutty notes. The addition of a portion of noble fruit further adds to the richness and complexity. Enjoy with grilled pork loin and ethnic dishes.Origin: McLaren Vale, South Australia Varietal: Grenache 100%Alc. 14.0%RockBare was established in 2000 to work with growers across South Australia to create a range of wines that showcase the unique characteristics of each region and varietal, with Peter Fraser of Yangarra Estate as the consulting winemaker. This new wave McLaren Vale Grenache was picked early to catch the fruit’s freshness, fermented at low temperatures and aged in a stainless tank. Lovely fresh cherry avours, it is bright and crunchy, with an appetizing, savory nish.Origin: Central Otago, New ZealandVarietal: Pinot NoirAlc. 13.5%The 2016 growing season started warm because of the influence of El Niño, but dramatic swings in weather and tempera-ture challenged the vineyard and winery teams mid-summer, before the tempera-tures dropped towards picking. The result was fruit picked relatively early with a balanced tension and nesse. A potpourri of flowers with subtle minerality on the nose and precise and playful palate, it is balanced and complete, possessing lovely charm, harmony and a persistent nish.
