A Great Gift. The Jealous Sisters White Wine Duo. Two fantastic New Zealand White Wines, presented in a wooden gift box. The wine in this gift are Jealous Sisters Sauvignon Blanc and Jealous Sisters Pinot Gris. The story behind the Jealous Sisters range comes from local Maori legend of beautiful twin sisters Retutai and Tangimoana who lived on the stony banks of the Ruamahanga River. A handsome local warrior named Rautoroa heard of their beauty and came bearing gifts. Their hearts went out to him and soon the sisters became jealous of each other. Tangimoana cruelly tricked her sister and married Rautoroa. Heartbroken, Retutai climbed up into the mountain mists and was never seen again. The Sauvignon Blanc is a typical Wairarapa Sauvignon Blanc nose of Granny Smith apples, green capsicum and lemonade .There is a citrus note of lemon peel that complements the mineral undertones and length of the palate. The wine is crisp and fresh with a restrained elegance. The Pinot Gris has lovely bouquet of yellow peach, loquat and nectarine and opens up to a musky floral and cinnamon spice nose. The palate is rich and rounded with a soft mealy character from the extended lees contact. The juicy nectarine characters give the palate a real fleshiness that finishes on a subtle spicy note. Treat someone with a gift they will always remember.
