Pale straw coloured with refreshing lemon, lime and ripe nectarine characters. Flavours of honeysuckle and stonefruit mingle with a subtle saltiness that provides a savoury taste to the wine. Rich and full bodied yet fresh with mouth-watering crisp acidity giving great balance, length and structure.
About Smith & Sheth
As contemporary negociants, Steve Smith MW and Brian Sheth seek out the exceptional, hand selecting the best grapes from the finest vineyards. Establishing steadfast relationships with the land, growers and makers who form the DNA of Smith & Sheth's CRU. The French call it "terroir" – a sense of place. In New Zealand we have our own defining word - Tūrangawaewae - our place to stand in the world.
This word describes the special connection of a people and the land they live, love and work in. Smith & Sheth's wines reflect the magic and alchemy of this relationship and the true beauty of these places.
Their DNA is expressed through the wine and woven into our visual language. Central to the label designs are the DNA strands that define the different grape clones used in their wines. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah: the essence of these varietals is illustrated on the bottles and captured within them. Our logo, S&S entwined, is the DNA helix representing the foundations of our story: Smith and Sheth seeking the exceptional.
