Nelson experiences long, sunny days and Waimea are one of the best producers here. In the early nineties, Trevor and Robyn Bolitho were growing apples on this estate and diversified into vines, with impressive results. An intense, tropical-fruit-laden wine, full of concentrated flavours of orange zest and lychee, embellished with floral notes on the nose and a delicate yet slightly unctuous texture. The off-dry apéritif style really emphasises the wine’s fruitiness. A marvellous match for spicy foods such as Thai curry.
