Summer in Marlborough was a warm one, so they began picking fruit earlier than normal. With one short rain event early on, the year was followed by more lovely warmth giving a real boost to flavour ripening over that time. Harvest is always busy in Marlborough, but with their vast range of vineyards across a number of micro climates, they managed to capture vineyards, one by one, at their perfect flavour profile.

A portion of this wine (60%) was fermented in predominantly older French oak barrels - about 15% new oak was used, which adds textural complexity. The wine was minimally fined before filtering for bottle. Can be cellared for up to 5 years.

Food matches - perfect with fresh shellfish. Complex aromas of ripe mandarin, nettle, fresh apricot, baked peach and lemon curd mingle with vanilla and clove spices. A seaside saltiness leads into the palate reinforcing a lovely rich entry that evolves seamlessly through the palate – this finishes with a mouth-watering acidity making you reach for another glass.
