A focused and concentrated palate with crisp grapefruit acidity and bold tropical flavours.
After harvesting, the grapes were transported to the winery and crushed with minimal skin contact to avoid juice deterioration. After cold settling, each batch was cool fermented in stainless steel using a variety of cultured yeasts to add complexity to the blend and to retain fresh fruit characteristics. The wines were blended shortly after the completion of fermentation, then carefully balanced and prepared for bottling.
30% of this wine is sourced from our Woolshed Vineyard in the upper Wairau Valley while the remainder is from carefully selected grower blocks in the Wairau, Ure and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough.
Would be a great match to pan-fried scallops with bacon and asparagus.
