Description

  • Gooseberry
  • Passionfruit & grapefruit
  • Feijoa
  • Bright acidity

"Fresh and intensely aromatic, the wine shows grapefruit, green apple and lime zest characters on the nose with a touch of flinty complexity. The palate delivers excellent concentration and punchy flavours, beautifully supported by fine texture and bright acidity, finishing persistent and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2020

Pale in colour with hints of green. The nose is trademark Kiwi Savvy with gooseberry aromas given complexity by feijoa and citrus. The palate displays lime, and passionfruit flavours carried by a fine mineral acid backbone.

2019 was an auspicious vintage for Marlborough vignerons with favourable reports from all parts of the region. There were more sunshine days and less rain and although the yields were down the quality was deemed excellent.

Hand-picked into small bins and chilled before transportation to the winery, this wine saw a cool fermentation in stainless steel before extended maturation on lees to build texture and complexit.
