This wine sources its grapes from the cooler climate Awatere valley in Marlborough. It has heady aromas of lemongrass, fresh herbs and a hint of spice. The palate is fresh and vibrant with lime, tropical fruits and garden peas finishing with zingy acidity.
Vineyards The Graham, McKee and Gussin Vineyards are very near the coast and 75% of this blend is from this very cool and windy part of the Awatere Valley imparting a linear structure and chalky salinity to the wine. The remainder is from our Blackbirch Vineyard, located inland with 200m elevation on the northern bank of the Awatere River Vintage Fruit set in the cool spring weather was lower than usual, resulting in the development of open bunches with small flavourful berries. From January onwards, Marlborough experienced a summer of the century, with a spell of long hot dry weather with moderately cool nights providing the perfect environment to ensure physiological and flavour ripeness whilst retaining freshness.
Harvest is done during night-time cooler temperatures. Fermentation is done using aromatic & textural yeast strains 100% stainless steel fermentation. Maturation is carefully monitored for a period of time on yeast lees to help build palate weight and texture. Minimal fining with traditional products.
