Ara Single Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Marlborough 13%
An aromatic blend of sweet and fresh herbs alongside ripe and sweet citrus aromas; tree fruits and tropical suggestions; pungent and lively bouquet. On the palate - a vibrant and lively wine packed with citrus and peach flavors, lively yet calm herbaceous flavors; high acidity, light weight, incredibly drinkable with a moderate + finish. Well made.
Ara Single Estate Pinot Gris 2014 Marlborough 13%
A little skin contact has given this wine a touch of color (good!) and some extra oomph in the bouquet - leesy and almost cheesy pear skin and flesh aromas, sweet yellow apple and a sweet wet stone mineral note. On the palate - just off-dry with a hint of sweetness, lush and juicy white fruit flavors, medium+ acidity and a refreshing finish with a touch of spice.
Balanced, well made and in a drink now style.
