Background

The fruit was sourced from a sustainably farmed, grower vineyard in the Omaka sub-region of Marlborough. Hand-harvested into small bins and then whole bunch pressed. Indigenous yeast fermentation; 75% went into two-three year old French oak barrels and the balance to a stainless steel barrel. Full malolactic fermentation. Aged on lees for six-eight months without stirring.

Tasting Note

"A rather hedonistic nose suggests ripe pears, fresh peach and oatmeal while the palate is taught and chalky with nectarine, pear and iodine notes and a driven freshness. Unmistakably Marlborough for its cleansing hit of salty goodness, this is harmonious, balanced and dry. Like we said, outstanding value and a wine that again breaks the mould." - Importers Note
