Winery Notes:
Pale yellow with brilliant clarity.

Very evident aromas of pineapple, passion fruit and melon.

Fresh, crisp and clean with zesty flavours of ripe tropical fruits and zingy acidity. A beautifully balanced wine with great presence and mouthfeel.

Enjoyable on its own as an aperitif, or pairs well with any lighter seafood dish, lemon herb chicken, or summer salads.

Marlborough enjoyed a particularly dry and relatively cool summer and autumn. This ensured a long slow growing season yielding fruit of optimal ripeness and richness of flavour. Grapes were selected from a wide variety of our Wairau and Awatere vineyards to ensure a complex and harmonious flavour profile. Upon harvesting, the fruit was crushed and destemmed. After crushing, the juice was given up to 3 hours skin contact, then drained to tank and pressed. A variety of yeasts were used in fermentation, promoting maximum flavour expression and complexity in the wine.
