FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
93 POINTS | Cameron Douglas
A classic Green Ginger wine made right here in NZ. Made from Marlborough grapes and natural ginger, it's zesty and spicy. Delicious neat or mix it with whisky for a hot toddy. A perfect drop to keep you warm over the winter months.
Sam Kim writes "It is fabulously aromatic on the nose with gorgeous ginger notes together with nuances of dark spice and potpourri. The palate delivers excellent depth and intensity with a delightful spicy kick and punchy flavours, finishing long and fragrant. Wonderfully expressive and superbly balanced."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Golden and shiny appearance lead to intense aromas of ginger root, ginger spice and a gingernut. There’s a moment of peach and apricot and old roses before the spice engages again. The palate mirrors the use exactly with gusto and intensity. Firm, creamy, moderate to low acidity, intensely flavoured and lengthy. Perfect for a nightcap, in cocktails, maybe food or just over ice."
