This wine display a complex aroma of tropical fruits, passion fruit, feijoa and a touch of lime. The palate shows sweet pure fruit flavours balanced with a limey acidity and mineral finish.
The fruit for this wine comes from our Marlborough vineyards located in the Awatere and Wairau valleys of the Marlborough district. The Awatere is cooler than the Wairau and the fruit from both vineyards reflects this with the Awatere fruit being tighter and more restrained while the Wairau fruit is more upfront and tropical.
The fruit from both was pressed off skins soon after harvest in Marlborough with the juice then transported to Katikati for fermentation. Select yeasts are used which combined contribute to the aromatic complexity of the wine.
Parcels of fruit have been carefully selected for this wine to best represent the quality of the season and the vineyards.
Contains: Sulphites, produced with milk product. Traces may remain.

Oh my goodness. This was simply divine. You would expect a Marlborough to be a good drinker, but this was exceptional.
