Description

  • Dry style
  • Tropical fruit
  • Ripe blackcurrant & lime
  • Lingering finish

Pale straw with a slight green hue colour in the glass. Aromatic white currant, capsicum and fragrant tropical fruit with a hint of thyme. Luscious ripe blackcurrant and lime flavours. The palate is steely and mineral with a chalky oyster shell texture. It is pure and focused with a long lingering finish.

The fruit was sourced from a single vineyard on the fertile, free-draining soils of the lower Wairau Valley. The fruit was carefully monitored during ripening and harvested in the cool of the evening at maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness. The highly fertile soils of this vineyard have been built up over time by annual flooding and help to produce the intensity of flavour in the wine. The vineyard is now protected from flooding by a stopbank.

The juice was pressed off immediately following harvesting to minimize skin contact and juice deterioration. After settling, the juice was fermented using a selected yeast strain in stainless steel at cool temperatures to retain fruit flavour and freshness. This batch was selected as a Pioneer Block wine due to its power and intensity of flavour.

Food Pairing: Well matched with smoked salmon and steamed green-lipped mussels.
