A MASSIVE STAFF FAVOURITE

We have to admit to being slightly obsessed with Blondie over the years. It's been a staple for us at any occasion! And we're not the only ones - Wooing Tree Blondie is Reese Witherspoon's favourite NZ wine!
A unique Blanc de Noir made from 100% Pinot Noir. The elegant champagne colour is a result of minimal skin contact prior to a gentle whole bunch press.
Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews writes "Bright, even, very pale peach pink. The nose is full and appealing, with lush aromas of strawberry, cherry and rose petals. Light-bodied, aromas of strawberry and cherry show depth of flavour, lingering with rose petals fragrance. The acidity is refreshing, an excellent companion to the fruit and intense floral. This Blondie is lush and ready for summer."
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "It's delicately aromatic on the nose with white flesh stone fruit, lemon peel, white floral and a hint of sweet strawberry. The palate delivers excellent focus and fine flow, beautifully supported by juicy fruit flavours and bright acidity, finishing fabulously long and refreshing."
The winery writes "This unique Blanc de Noir was made from 100% Pinot noir grapes, grown on our family owned vineyard. Ripe hand picked fruit and gentle winemaking have given a wonderfully balanced wine. The elegant champagne colour resulted from minimal skin contact prior to a gentle whole bunch press. The juice was fermented in stainless steel to retain the varietal and fruit characteristics. The wine shows delightful aromas of pear, guava and passionfruit with white peach, apricot and a touch of strawberry on the palate. Best served slightly chilled."
