HBW 2013 v3Bellbird Spring Home Block White 2013 $30 ★★★★

Guy Porter has blended together an eyebrow-raising combo of riesling, muscat, gewürztraminer and pinot gris from his family vineyard on Georges Road, Waipara to create a wine redolent of yellow roses and grandma’s overnight bag – perfumed and sweet on the nose.  In the mouth it has juicy white peach and persimmon notes, refreshing creamy and complex.  It’s amazing with spicy butter chicken.  www.bellbirdspring.co.nz
