Bright aromas of white nectarine and peach with lifted oak spice.
Complex layers of fresh stone fruit are interlaced with subtle oak and creamy nougat. A generous and full mid-palate with a hint of spice lingering on the finish.
Drinking well now and will continue to develop complexity over the next few years.

Winemaking & Viticulture:
Fruit was selected from several vineyards across the Marlborough region with a variety of different clones. This careful selection of fruit contributes to the complexity of the wine. The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness and fermented in seasoned oak or stainless steel tanks. Each parcel went through malolactic fermentation to soften and round out the palate. After several months lees aging post-fermentation, each parcel was assessed and selected for this final wine.
