A convergence of flavours from vineyards located on the banks of the Wairau and Awatere rivers. Harvested at optimum ripeness, the grapes were gently pressed and fermented, at cool temperatures, in stainless steel to maximise fruit purity and character. A percentage of the wine was aged on fine lees for 3 months, adding texture, complexity and increased mouth feel to the palate.
Bright straw with golden/green hues, it has an abundance of ripe tropical fruit aromas overlaid with exotic gooseberry and an attractive herbal pungency. The palate balances great concentration with stylish elegance. Fresh, balanced and persistent flavours leading to a long mineral finish.
