Giverny Estate Toolangi Sparkling Kiwi fruit wine
An intriguing sparkling made from kiwi fruit. Excellent white mousse, with fine profuse bead with good persistence. Brilliant straw colour. The nose is delicate with subtle yeast autolysis note, followed by a hint of spice and a trace of Kiwi fruit. The palate is the challenge for this wine, since it relies purely on the base material from one batch of kiwi fruit which makes layering complexity difficult to achieve – but that is the challenge facing future vintages. There is just a touch of residual sweetness, some spicy dusty kiwi fruit flavours emerge, with a slightly furry end palate sensation. A very interesting style, which would be ideal over a platter of tropical fruit.
