Description

Kunoh Ajisai 2021

Kunoh Ajisai is a natural New Zealand wine created by Yuki Nakano. Opens with a nose of white peach, honeysuckle and fresh cucumber. The medium-bodied palate has a crisp acidity and smooth texture. Gooseberry, white peach and tangerine flavours dominate the palate, followed closely by hints of vanilla. 

60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40%Viognier. The fruit for this wine comes from Upper Moutere in New Zealand. 

50% barrel fermentation and 50% Sauvignon Blanc co-fermented with carbonic maceration and on skin for 4 days, then pressing together. The wine ages in barrels on lees for 6 months and then in stainless steel for 3 months. No filtration, fining or additives.
