Tasting Notes
Colour:

Pale gold.

Aroma:

Pear and apple aromas leap from the glass along with a subtle spice note.

Palate:

flavours of ripe green pear and juicy apple. Luscious and mouth filling with plenty of fruit and a lingering silky finish.

Ageing potential:

Drink upon release – this wine will continue to gain complexity over the next 3 years from vintage date.

Winemaking and Viticulture
Winemakers:

Stewart Maclennan and Hamish Clark

Winemaking:

The fruit was sourced from a selection of vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau and Awatere Valleys and harvested at optimum flavour ripeness. The free-run juice was drained from the press and cold settled before a cool fermentation in stainless steel to retain the varietal aromas. A small portion was fermented in old oak and underwent malolactic fermentation in order to add complexity and texture. The parcels of wine were selected by the winemakers and blended then stabilised and carefully prepared for bottling.
