2021 Wooing Tree Blondie Blanc de Noir

93 Points Sam Kim
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

"Offering fabulous purity and poise, this delicately expressed wine shows apricot, lemon zest and white floral aromas with a hint of sweet raspberry. The palate displays excellent focus and flow, beautifully complemented by juicy fruit flavours and bright acidity. At its best: now to 2024. $30.00. www.wooingtree.co.nz. Oct 2021." Drink 2021 - 2024

90/100 Cameron Douglas MS

"Fragrant, delicate and enticing with aromas of light red berry fruit with floral scents and a touch of spring water freshness. Crisp, dry and salivating on the palate with flavours of red apple and cherry, a touch of bubble-gum and chilled red fruit tea with rose. Balanced and well made, refreshing and delicate. Best drinking from today and through 2022."

90/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Made from 100% pinot noir. A pale-tinted rosé with delicate pear, apple, strawberry flavours together with a unusual peppery and gunpowder character. A silken-textured wine, with an initial hint of sweetness and a pleasantly dry finish. 28 SEP 2021." Drink 2021 - 2024
