White Wine by Henschke from Australia. Vibrant pale straw with green hues. Complex aromas of lemon and lime zest, freshly cut grass, green apple and fragrant clover and almond blossom are enhanced with hints of anise and toasted hazelnut. Rich and textural, the palate shows flavors of citrus, stone-fruit and green apples; with finely poised acidity and supporting mineral backbone, the incredibly restrained power and intensity provide both length and longevity.
White Wine by Pegasus Bay from New Zealand. The exotic aromas and flavors of this wine suggest tropical spices, Turkish musk, and passion-fruit supported by an array of citrus fruits and wild thyme. The wine has good concentration in the mouth but is refined and elegant with a spine of tingling minerality and crisp acidity which complement its lingering, dry finish.
