Description

True to the Crowded House style, the 2018 wine displays grapefruit and citrus with overlaying tropical and stonefruit flavours and a gentle herbaceous undercurrent. The palate is quintessentially Marlborough – vibrant, fresh and cleansing with a lovely precise framework carrying the fruit flavours to a long, pure and mouthwatering finish. At its aromatic peak for the first two years of its life, then taking on more richness and aromatic complexity.

Sourced predominantly from grower vineyrds in the Fairhall, Renwick and Waihopai sub regions of Marlborough.

Similar to 2017 in that a fantastic dry and warm start to the season was met with some indifferent wet weather close to harvest, requiring quick decision making to ensure fruit was harvested in good condition. The terrifi c start to the season and hot Summer ensured flavours and aromas were nevertheless very strong.

Clean juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains to maintain aromatic purity. The wine was allowed to build additional interest and texture through extended lees aging post fermentation. 

Food Pairing: Perfect as an aperitif in its youth, the wine will match with fresh seafood, aromatic dishes, grilled vegetables and salads.
