THE PERFECT ALTERNATIVE FOR FANS OF NZ SAUV
Sir John Kirwan MBE, the former rugby legend and mental health advocate, has been conducting a love affair with Italy for over 30 years now. (It's ok, his Italian wife is from Treviso, she gets it!) The fruit of this love affair is the selection of truly delicious and finely crafted Italian wines that he imports into New Zealand. With his son Luca and daughter Francesca playing an active role in the business, John and his family have carefully chosen wines that capture the heart and soul of the regions they are made from.
Grown in Puglia, Verdeca is a refreshing, dry grape variety that produces crisp, clean, refreshing whites that will perfectly suit fans of NZ sauv who want to try something new. With hints of white flowers, citrus and pear, and a crisp, mineral finish, this delicious white is perfectly matched with fresh seafood and a wedge of lemon. Dive in.
The winery writes "Characterised by a straw-yellow and crystalline colour, at the nose it shows surprising notes of white flowers mixed with citrus and fruity hints, such as pear and pineapple. The flavour is dry, enveloping and full flavoured, with a creamy texture and a fresh, mineral finish."
