Description

Classic aromas of fragrant citrus zest and passionfruit. The wine is juicy and ripe with tangelo and tropical, passionfruit flavours balanced by a bright line of 'crunchy' freshness. A small portion of high solids, wild fermentation in seasoned French oak has contributed subtle palate texture and complexity. Waimea means River Garden in Maori. 

Spring temperatures were in line with the historical average. Rainfall was only 60% of the norm but regular enough to promote excellent vine health. Regular, small rainfall events over December maintained balance and flowering conditions were ideal. This was the introduction to a long, dry, warm summer. December/January daytime temperatures were 3-5 degrees celcius above the historical average. Sunshine hours for january were a NZ record high at 335. Diurnal range over thi period was a little greaterr than usual, particularly through February. Just 3mm rainfall between Christmas Day and harvest began early on Monday 4th March 2019. A function of the near perfect growing season but also a conscious decision on our part to pick fruit while acids remained fresh and sugars were at moderate levels. 30mm rainfall over night on March 8th was significant in the context of the season but not extreme and with few lay-days to allow conditions to dry out, harvest continued to completion on March 26th. 

Food Pairing: Match with grilled fish, garlic prawns or simply grilled chicken & lamb.
