Southern Whither Hill, Marlborough, New Zealand
A pretty, feminine red with earthy, smooth black fruit. It has notes of blackberry and sage, with black tea on the finish. It's a lovely, delicate, smooth wine with a firm backbone to balance the red fruits on the palate. It has a lovely balance and notes of underbrush that make it better with food. Put this with heavier fish like salmon, tuna, and amberjack, or grilled vegetables. Everything with an Asian-style marinade is great too.
