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 com-plexity of the wine. The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness and fermented in seasoned oak or stainless steel tanks. Each parcel went through malolactic fer-mentation to soften and round out the palate. After several months lees aging post-fermentation, each parcel was assessed and selected for this final wine.
