This is a small, boutiquey, southern New Zealand label with only six vintages under its belt. Sporting a superripe smell of strawberries and cherries you want to live in — wish they had a Glade PlugIn for this one. Nice acidity, black pepper and earth make it a wonderful food wine. 4.5 stars out of 5. Sweetness=1 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $30
