CIRRO |si-RO| ‘The highest of all clouds, with thin wispy feather-like tails formed by ice crystals.’ 25,000ft above New Zealand’s Southern Alps and the Malborough Sounds lie the ‘cirro’ clouds. Pure water falls from these clouds into the rivers and soils of the Wairau Valley, allowing us to create distinctively fresh, vibrant cool climate wines.
This year we were awarded with a GOLD medal for our 2018 Marlborough Sauvignon blanc from CWSA, the biggest and most prestigious wine and spirits competition in China.
Bright, youthful and fragrant, the inviting bouquet shows Gala apple, feijoa, kiwifruit and lime peel characters, leading to a vibrant palate that is pristine and lively. The wine offers excellent fruit intensity backed by fine texture and crisp acidity, finishing long and delectable. Classically expressed and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2020. $23.00(nzd). www.cirrowines.com. Oct 2018.
