Ward Valley, Epicenter, Pinot Noir
An extremely hot, dry vintage combined with cooler nights and clay-rich soils contributed to very small berries, which gave a lifted nose and good intensity of fruit from the Mt. Victoria Block. Lightly pressed after fermentation the wine was then aged in 100% seasoned French oak.
Spicy, complex and youthful aromas of sweet cherry, cardamom seed and exotic spice. The palate is juicy and bright with earthy savoury undertones and a suave, plush tannin structure.

This classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc represents exceptional value for money and has built up a loyal following through it’s constant quality year after year. The style works equally well as an aperitif as matched with seafood or chicken dishes and looks great on the table at a dinner party
It is intensely aromatic on the nose showing passionfruit, kaffir lime, green rockmelon and lemon zest characters. The palate is equally impressive, displaying excellent fruit purity and vibrancy, backed by juicy acidity, leading to a lengthy mouth-watering finish.
Spring was cool leading to an average flowering which help to keep the fruit set light across the vineyard. Where both 2017 and 2018 brought a number of Cyclones to Marlborough, 2019 brought a westerly weather pattern with a hot dry summer and very little rain. This resulted in an early pick in late March to preserve the balance of acidity and sweetness in the grapes. We used our traditional Omaka vineyard Wairau fruit but to balance the heat of the summer we added 20% Awatere Valley fruit to add some extra zest to the vintage
