2020 Wooing Tree Blondie Blanc de Noir

93 Points Richard Caro
In stock
A word-of-mouth legend, the 'Blondie' is a much lighter Rose. Delicate and crisp with a slight blush of colour, this is one of the country's few Vin Gris or Blanc de Noir, which means an almost white style that is made from Pinot Noir. Such a light colour is achieved by pressing the pure juice straight off the skins. Different and delicious, the Blondie is a gem!

What The Critics Say

93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2019 vintage)

"Always a fabulous drink, this latest rendition offers bright fruit notes of ripe strawberry, nectarine and rockmelon with a lovely touch of white floral. The palate delivers excellent fruit purity and vibrancy backed by lively acidity, finishing long and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2021. $30.00. www.wooingtree.co.nz. July 2019."

90/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2019 vintage)

"Made from 100% Pinot Noir fruit this Blanc de Noir style (as a very light onion skin hue) shows off aromas and flavours of yellow and red cherry, a whisper of strawberry and red apple. Crisp, tense, refreshing and dry on the palate with a light dusting of fruit tannins, a core of fruit reflecting the nose, contrasting acid line and balanced, even finish."
