"Citrus and zesty pithy aromatics give this wine elegance and refinement. Nose and palate are harmonious with some lees giving fleshy texture, then long grassy finish" Decanter World Wine Awards 2021

Sourced entirely from vineyards located in Marlborough’s spectacular Awatere Valley, this vibrant wine displays aromas of passionfruit and citrus zest with notes of fresh herbs and green pepper. The concentrated palate is layered with flavours of sweet tropical fruit, bright lemon and lime, and crunchy green apple. With a zesty minerality this wine leads to a pure, lively and focused dry finish that has both freshness and length.

Grapes from this wine are sourced from blocks located in the upper, mid, and lower areas of the Awatere Valley. The Awatere is cooler, drier and windier overall than other sub-regions of Marlborough resulting in a longer growing season. These climatic factors combined with vineyards located on young, fertile river terraces result in distinctive wines with a mineral drive and fruit forward flavours. The 2019/2020 growing season started with warm temperatures and above average rainfall leading to early flowering and a good fruit set. Temperatures over the summer were above average, with minimal rain falling from mid-December until well after harvest. March provided ideal harvest conditions with warm sunny days and cool clear nights allowing the grapes to develop to full physiological ripeness while still retaining bright,
crisp acidity.

Select blocks from around the Awatere Valley are harvested using modern machine harvesters that allow ultimate extraction of flavour and aroma compounds from the skins of the grapes. Once at the winery the grapes are pressed into stainless steel tanks for cold settling, before being gently racked and inoculated with yeasts chosen to naturally enhance the aromatic and flavour profiles of the wine. Fermentation is carried out at cool temperatures allowing the wine to retain its bright aromas, with each batch fermentation typically lasting around 21 days. After completion of fermentation the wine is left to settle on yeast lees for a short period before being racked again into stainless steel tanks for maturation. Meticulous classification of each batch results in a final blend that truly captures the exceptional characteristics of the vineyards.

Food Pairing: Perfect with a simple goats cheese & beetroot salad with arugula.
