$19-$20 Retail

Grapes for this delicious bottling were sourced from the winery's Te Muna Road single vineyard property in the Wairarapa wine region's Martinborough district on the southern tip of New Zealand's north island. Only 1 percent of the country's wines are produced in Martinborough. An excellent expression of the varietal, this wine exhibits aromas of grapefruit, lime zest, green apple, stone fruit and lemon grass. On the palate, the wine offers guava, pear, mango, citrus, passionfruit herbal notes and a burst of minerality. Drink it with soft cheeses, nuts, raw oysters, artichokes, salads, fish, grilled scallops, poultry and fried mushrooms and vegetables. Buy it at: Swirl Wine Market and Rouses in Uptown. Drink it at: Commander's Palace, Le Petit Grocery, GW Fins, Antoine's, Bourbon House, Cafe Amelie, Muriel's Jackson Square, Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Ruth's Chris Steak House and Lola in Covington.
