Description

  • Red berry
  • Juicy acidity
  • Savoury flavours
  • Freshing palate

This wine contains galeforce aromas of extreme intensity that will blow you away. Each mouthful of this vibrant mini-storm is balanced to perfection as the ripe red berry and savoury flavours combine beautifully with the precipitation of juicy acidity refreshing the palate, ready for the next gust of wine.

The fruit was crushed and soaked for 5 days to absorb the delicate aromas and flavours in the skins. A cultured yeast strain was added to begin the fermentation process, and to extract as much colour and phenolics from the skins, they were plunged throughout fermentation. Once dry, the wine was pressed into barrels and the malo-lactic fermentation softened the acidity to create a balanced and harmonious wine.

The strong winds of the Upper Wairau Valley of Marlborough often reach Galeforce intensity. The vines find these Galeforce winds very unnatural and they divert all their energy into producing the juiciest fruit with the most flavour for the birds to spread their seed. The fruit is harvested before the birds can get to them

Food pairing: Rustic dishes such as cassoulet or duck with olives.
