The beautifully fragrant and elegant fruit flavours of this wine are indicative of the mineral laden soils in this cool-climate region creating a freshness, complexity and enduring finish.
Honu: the Maori word for turtle. Known for its wisdom and patience, the sea turtle’s journey is one of beauty, adaption and discovery. Like the animal that inspired the Maori people, these wines showcase the patience, wine making excellence and pioneering spirit that have made New Zealand wines world class. A far cry from their early French origins, these wines are distinctive & unique with a purity and intensity of flavour which is characteristic of their region.
Delightful fruit aromas of strawberry and redcurrant lead into tantalising savoury flavours of roast game, beetroot and raspberry. Soft tannins and a touch of acidity make it fresh on the palate.
Delicious served at room temperature with poultry dishes, game or soft cheese such as Brie or Camembert, or simply on its own.
