The latest offering from Majestic wines, usually our go-to wine folk, particularly for well priced New Zealand wines is... disappointing.
Dazzled by the shiney Wine Award sticker and a fan of the Awatere region of Marlborough, we expected a rich, limey glassful of deliciousness well balanced by juicy acidity leading to a happy ever after of an evening.
This started well with some passion fruit aromas, lemon / lime / melon flavours and an interesting floral thing going on.
However, it was all over as bad blind date; the wine starts pretty well but then the flavours just disappear.... Definitely not an award winner for us.
