Winery Notes:

Pale yellow with brilliant clarity.

NOSE:
Very evident aromas of pineapple, passion fruit and melon.

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

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

VINIFICATION:
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.
