Conditions were very dry early in the season, with average temperatures, clear skies and a high risk of frost. Warm conditions over flowering in mid-December resulted in good yields. Decent rain in early and mid-January, allowed for healthy canopies and vigorous growth. February was hot and dry, followed by warm, dry March; perfect weather for intense flavour development.
Silty loam over free draining gravels
Standard vertical trellis
Light straw with a bright clarity
This wine has freshly scented gooseberry, grapefruit, nettle and floral notes.
A medium-bodied wine, the palate has mineral nuances, with grapefruit zest and herbal notes. This wine has finely balanced, zesty acidity and a long clean finish.
This wine is made to be drunk now, but can be cellared for 2-3 year
This wine is particularly well suited to seafood dishes, poultry or salads.
The grapes were machine harvested in cool morning conditions to minimise the accumulation of any phenolics, and to retain the varietal flavours which Marlborough is renowned for. After light pressing, the clear juice was then racked and fermented at a cool temperature, using selected yeast strains to preserve the fruit’s intense flavours.. Bottling date; 6th September 2016

It is intensively aromatic on the nose displaying passionfruit, nectarine, feijoa and lemongrass characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is filled with delectable flavours. The wine delivers pristine fruit flavours and fine texture, wonderfully structured by refreshing acidity. At its best now to 2019 - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
