Full and round with fresh fruit flavours of ripe peach and melon interlaced with subtle oak and citrus undertones A luscious 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 stainless steel tanks with seasoned French and American oak. 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.
