Description

Here in Marlborough, classic Rapaura gravels absorb the sun’s warmth during the day, radiating back onto the grapes by moonlight, to create the highly aromatic flavours for which Marlborough is so highly reputed.

This wine is bright lemon colour with a hint of green. Exotic perfumes leap from the glass with vivacious aromas of citrus peel, passionfruit skins and hints of fresh kaffir lime leaves. The palate is refreshing and intense, displaying crisp citrus notes and passionfruit flavours, this wine is well balanced and focused with crisp acidity and a long, juicy, mouth-watering finish.

Made from grapes sourced principally from our own Opawa vineyard on Rapaura gravel soils, the fruit was machine harvested in the cool of the night and immediately pressed at the winery. A cool fermentation followed using an aromatic yeast, with a small portion being fermented in large oak cuve’s to add a textural element to the wine. After a short period on yeast lees the wine was clarified and filtered prior to bottling in July 2018.

Food Pairing: A delightful wine pairing well with fresh green-lipped mussels or Caesar salad
