You can learn about light-bodied wine. The low alcohol level makes this wine perfect to practice what a “light-bodied” wine should be.
Know what? The main aromas are gooseberry and passion fruit. Also you can find kiwi, citrus and fresh-cut grass.
This wine is also a good one to learn how “minerality” tastes with a crisp mouthfeel and light flint stone.
This is like an opening band. Try it while waiting for the arrival the rest of your friends, while relaxing after work or while reading on the balcony in the summer time.
Try it as appetizer, if you prefer, with something salty as olives or chips. This wine will surprise you in the nose with deep tropical, citric and fresh aromas. When you drink it, it will leave your mouth clean and fresh, ready for more. It is perfect to set your stomach for the meal.
Pair with roasted fish with potatoes and thyme. What would happen if I eat it with chili soup? Well, actually nothing. But you will feel like your are drinking an expensive water.
You can keep this wine until the end of 2017. What will happen if I keep it longer? After this point, the wine will be ok, but it’s aromas could be partially gone and it may loose its refreshing characteristic. What a pity! 🙁
Curiosity: “tikohi” means “togetherness” in the maori language of New Zealand.
