Vineyards and Winemaking
The fruit for this wine is sourced from vineyards in both the Wairau and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough. Fruit is harvested in cool night temperatures to enhance aromatics, then fermented with aromatic and textural yeast strains. The wine matures on its yeast lees for a closely monitored period of time to develop a complex creamy texture, before blending, finishing and bottling whilst still youthful to enhance freshness.
Highly fragrant, this full-bodied, finely textured wine has generous, well-ripened pear and peach flavours and a smooth, slightly sweet, very harmonious finish. Drink now or cellar.Winestate Magazine
