Tasting Notes

Pale green.


Fresh aromas of blackcurrant, green capsicum and lifted apple blossom.


A crisp and refreshing palate bursting with herbaceous flavours of ripe greens, currant and nettle. This wine is ‘lighter’ in alcohol, with no compromise on tropical flavour intensity or complexity.

Ageing Potential:

Perfect for drinking immediately or over the next three years.

Winemaking and Viticulture

Stewart Maclennan 

Winemaking and Viticulture:

The fruit was sourced from selected vineyard sites located in Marlborough’s Awatere and Wairau Valleys. Grapes were harvested at optimum flavour intensity before the sugar levels became too high. This allowed the production of a wine lower in alcohol but rich in flavour. The grapes were machine harvested at cool temperatures and processed immediately to minimise skin contact. The juice was cool fermented in stainless steel to retain varietal character and freshness. Fermentation was stopped to retain some residual sugar in order to give the wine palate weight.

Awards and Accolades 

90 Points - Cameron Douglas MS, Low and No Alcohol Tasting, 2023

"Aromatic and punchy, varietal and fresh with a bouquet of tropical fruits and citrus, some fresh green herbs and green pear. There are moments of spice and citrus pith some florals and minerality. Well made, balanced and ready to drink with a whisper of sweetness right on the finish. Best drinking from day of purchase through end of summer 2025."
