Description

  • Dry style
  • Stonefruit
  • Lemon
  • Gentle acidity

Fragrant lemon, red apple and stone-fruit aromas lead to quite a dry yet richly textured palate with fresh, bright fruit characters and a gentle acidity.

This is from two adjacent Waihopai vineyards. The soils in these blocks are a mixture of clay, gravel and silts. The clays provide lovely mouthfeel and weight to this wine. The viticulture is quite intensive as we undertake shoot, bunch and colour thinning in order to ensure low crop levels, full ripening and concentrated flavours. 2019 was an outstanding vintage so they picked the grapes at perfect ripeness, with great flavour and in wonderful condition.

The winemaking for this wine was very straight forward. They are simply seeking to express the wonderful characters they get from these vineyards. The grapes were gently pressed and fermented at cool temperatures to retain the naturally occurring, fresh fruit character. Fermentation was stopped with just a hint of residual sugar and the wine was bottled here at the winery.

Food Pairing: Spicy foods, especially Thai flavours, also pates and terrines, salmon, chicken and pork dishes. Scallops with bacon are great with this wine too!
