Description

Intense lifted notes of ripe tropical fruits and citrus on the nose. Refined and elegant, displaying a finely textured palate with flavours of guava and stone fruit. Wonderfully expressive with a fresh, dry finish.

Sourced from our family vineyards across the Marlborough region, these grapes were harvested in the cool hours of the morning, gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel vats. After blending, the wine was left to settle on light lees before bottling on the Wairau River Estate. 

Flowering commenced in the first week of December. During this period the region experienced higher than average rainfall limiting the potential yields. January and February were some of the warmest months on record culminating in one of the earliest harvests seen in the region. Picking began in the first week of March and concluded in the first week of April. The harvest consequently wasn’t condensed allowing the winemakers to pick at optimal balance and sugar ripeness, as well as physiological ripeness. The warm and fine weather through the late summer months has allowed the development of a riper spectrum of tropical flavours, providing the winemakers with an extensive array of complimentary blending components from which to assemble the wines.

Food Pairing: Pair with a Mediterranean Summer Salad or with Stuffed Mini Peppers with Goats Cheese and Feta.
