Tasting Notes

Pale green.


Lively aromas of herbaceous greens, blackcurrant bud and fresh garden herbs.


Fresh and bright with flavours of blackcurrant leaf, green capsicum and fleshy white peach with an underlying salty minerality and a long lingering finish.

Ageing potential:

Drinking beautifully now and best enjoyed over the next two years.

Winemaking and Viticulture

Stewart Maclennan


The juice was pressed off immediately to minimize skin contact and juice deterioration following harvesting. After settling, the juice was fermented using a carefully selected yeast in a stainless steel tank at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. This batch was selected as a Pioneer Block wine due to its intensity of flavour and rich texture on the palate.


The fruit was sourced from a single vineyard on the fertile, free-draining soils of the lower Wairau Valley. The fruit was carefully monitored during ripening and harvested in the cool of the evening at maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness.
