Review:
This is a shining example of a variety too rarely seen in New Zealand, in this reviewer's opinion. Huia's version is elegant and refreshing. It's also a total bargain. Pale yellow, the delicately perfumed nose dances with notes of citrus, peach, watermelon Jolly Ranchers (but don't think sweet), fresh blossoms and a hint of ginger, all backed by a stony mineral baseline. The palate is beautifully balanced and textural, with length and focus, laced with minerals. Drink now with spicy summery cuisine like cold Vietnamese noodles or goat cheese and fig.

Review:
A round and supple Grüner with an uncompromising lick of acidity that pulls the wine through on the medium-length finish. Expect lots of apple flavors allied with a pack of Parma violets and a squeeze of lemon. Fresh, zesty finish. One of New Zealand's more promising Grüners, making it a relatively rarity at the moment.
