Lifted fragrances of red apple, lime zest and citrus blossom.
Flavours of green apple and mandarin with an underlying minerality. The palate is waxy and textural with an off dry finish that lingers.
Perfect for drinking now and will continue to reward over the next three to five years.

Each parcel was fermented separately at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks in order to retain the varietal characters and freshness. After fermentation the parcels were assessed for quality, carefully blended then balanced, stabilised and prepared for bottling.
The grapes were harvested from select vineyard sites predominantly in Marlborough’s Awatere at the peak of flavour development in the cool of the evening.
Alcohol 10.5% v/v
