Tasting Notes:           A very pretty wine with lifted aromas of nettles passionfruit, tropical fruit and citrus flower notes. Mingling with subtle flinty mineral characters, and flavours of gooseberry and melon, this wine express the Gladstone terroir. It is a crisp refreshing wine which evolves into a generous fruit-filled mouthful balanced with elegant citrus-like acidity.

Brand/Winery Background:
 
THE FIRST AND FOREMOST VINEYARD AT GLADSTONE IN THE WAIRARAPA, NEW ZEALAND.
Established in 1986, Gladstone Vineyard is a family business with an international reputation for distinctive, high quality wines of finesse and complexity.
 
Established on the old riverbed of the Ruamahanga River at Gladstone, our focus is simply to craft beautiful wine that expresses the exceptional characteristics of the soil, the climate and the region.
 
At Gladstone Vineyard, we are committed to growing our vines and producing our wine in a thoughtful and environmentally responsible manner. We like to call this "intelligent winegrowing". It means making smart, considered decisions about everything we do, with the interests of the land, the vines and the wine top of mind.
 
12,000 MILES
12,000 Miles is a premium range of wines from Gladstone Vineyard, reflecting new world wine styles, with good fruit and terroir.
 
12,000 Miles wines are specially selected to be full flavoured, yet easy to drink now or over the next 2-3 years.
 
12,000 Miles also represents a journey – from Christine Kernohan 's (chief winemaker) and  birth home in Scotland to her adopted home here in New Zealand, a journey that has been a major part of Christine for half her life. It also represents the journey involved in bringing the wine to market – grown sustainably with care in our vineyards in the Wairarapa and made with passion in our winery in Gladstone. As one of a handful of Scottish women winemakers in the world, this label tells her story.
