GOLD MEDAL | New Zealand International Wine Show.
Beetle Juice is Wooing Tree's entry level label and each vintage cleans up at the award rounds. Rich and silky smooth with fine tannins. Expect great things from this new vintage release.
The winery writes "Ripe hand picked fruit, gentle winemaking and maturation in French oak, 27% new, have resulted in a very approachable and rich wine, with aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries and Black Doris plums, a rich and silky smooth palate with fine grainy tannins to match the fruit. Excellent value, drinking fantastically well now and will develop and cellar for several years."
This wine is named after the critically endangered Cromwell Chafer Beetle, found in just one site in Cromwell.
