I am always looking for something different, while still searching among varietals that I loved, and this time, I picked up this wine from Mohua. The reasoning was that I fell in love with a Sauv Blanc made by Kono.

This wine is crisp, with a nice silky texture and exotic flavors of passionfruit, guava and gooseberry. It's not over the top, and it blends well with anything. I choose to have it with some grilled chicken and it paired very well.

This is a prime example of a producer showing different aspects of a varietal that reminds you of what you like, and shows you more of what can be done.

Proceeds of this wine go towards the conservation of the Mohua bird, which used to be plentiful but is now very rare in New Zealand.
