The picturesque Taylors Pass Vineyard is located on the north bank of the meandering Awatere River in Marlborough. With soils ranging from silt over gravels to stony gravels, the vineyard consistently produces ripe and full flavoured fruit.
The nose offers aromatics of ripe gooseberry, lime, passionfruit and grapefruit, whilst the palate is complex and layered with ripe tropical fruit and subtle minerality, typical of the Awatere Valley. This wine is gently structured with acidity providing balance and length. The wine will gain further texture with short term bottle age.
