Huia Sauvignon Blanc 2007
Deliciously aromatic and tropical, just a background of cut grass and juicy lemon. Powerful but poised and well balanced palate with real juiciness and verve. Lovely style. 89/100. £8.92
Huia Pinot Noir 2006
Gently beetrooty nose, with cranberry and soft red fruits. The palate has a richness and silkiness to the texture, and a big sweep of lemony acidity cuts in rather abrubtlyacross the modest fruit. 87/100. £12.00
