"Intensely fruited and beautifully lifted, the bouquet shows passionfruit, green rockmelon, kaffir lime and lemon peel characters, leading to a vibrant palate that is filled with delicious flavours. It is punchy and lively with fine texture and refreshing acidity, finishing persistent and tasty. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2018

"Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, near colourless on the rim. The nose is softly full and voluminous with fresh aromas of pungent passionfruit and tropical fruit harmoniously integrated with notes of fresh herbs and snow peas. This has a near-ethereal expression. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is fresh and bright with good depth and soft concentration, showing gentle layers of passionfruit, tropical fruits and herbs. The mouthfeel is rounded with a soft, smooth, near-slippery line and background, refreshing, lacy acidity. The flavours carry to an elegant, soft finish. This is a softly concentrated, rounded Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, tropical fruit and fresh herb flavours on a smooth-flowing palate. Match with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Marlborough fruit, 40% from the Southern Valleys and 30% each from the Awatere and Wairau, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc., the wine undergoing batonnage" Raymond Chan, Aug 2018

Lifted passionfruit, guava, orange blossom and blackcurrant leaf aromas perfume this fragrant bouquet. The palate is full of juicy ripe tropical fruit flavours leading into a soft and approachable acidity with moreish minerality.

Carefully harvested in the cool of the night to help preserve the fresh flavours from the vineyard. Cold soaked to extract the desired flavours, tannins and colour.

Select parcels were then allowed to macerate for an additional twoto five days, further extracting colour and flavours after fermentation. Once pressed the wine was matured in a combination of French and Hungarian Oak.

Food Pairing: Try with grilled pork loin chops, chicken Provençal or a roasted vegetable salad.

This wine is deep red colour in the gass with a touch of purple hues. On the nose aromas of black fruit and dark plum mingle with a hint of forrest floor spice and seasoned oak. Dense dark fruits persist on the mid palate to give lovely sweetness, with hints of dark cocoa. These falvours are well balanced by silky smooth tannins.

The 2016 vintage was extremly late but saw an incredibly warm Summer followed buy an early Autumn period. The resulting fruit was juicy and succulent, with dark fruit flavours and plenty of colour, that produced wines with great structure and rich softness.

Food Pairing: Match with a juicy steak and red wine jus, for a classic pairing with this wines sweet and spice notes.
