Description

"Charming and delightfully expressed, the wine shows Gala apple, lemon peel, nectarine and floral characters with a hint of sweet strawberry. It is juicy and finely textured on the palate with lovely youthful flavours, finishing long and refreshing" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Sep 2019

It is salmon pink, with fragrant aromas of strawberries, red currents & cranberry. On the palate it is dry and fi nely textured, with fresh and vibrant minerality. The infl uence of the Pinot Noir ensures the wine remains fleshy and supple, while the two Cabernets contribute aroma and structure.

Unsettled weather over fl owering resulted in a lighter than average set, meaning that no further fruit thinning was necessary. A classic North Canterbury summer then enabled this smaller crop to mature beautifully. Accelerated ripening allowed harvest to take place slightly earlier than usual, and favourable autumn weather ensured the grapes were picked in perfect condition.

Carefully selected grapes from an assemblage of complementary varieties including Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc were harvested to make this wine. The free run juice was given a small amount of skin contact to add some colour. Fermentation was carried out in stainless steel vats at a cool temperature to retain varietal purity and freshness, with the wine being bottled shortly after.

Food Pairing: Complements a strawberry salad with pastrami & salted pistachios.
