Locations NZ-8 by Dave Phinney
In the glass, a brilliant pale yellow reminiscent of white currants; the wine opens with an intense bouquet of gooseberries, feijoas, and ripe tropical fruits. The bright entry of fresh cut grass and preserved lemon lead to passion fruit pot de creme showcasing a long finish of fresh herbs and clean minerality.
Dave Phinney's newest project "Locations," is independent from his previous ventures. Locations arose from the idea that there is great wine all over the world, which sometimes gets lost because the appellation rules are confusing and old fashioned. In similar fashion to his previous successes, Dave strives to make the best wine possible. Locations present us with well-crafted wines made from vineyards across their respective countries that demonstrate that a commitment to excellent fruit and gentle winemaking techniques can make a product that is just as good as any terroir-driven wine.
