Description

  • Subtle oak
  • Ripe stone fruit
  • Fresh melon
  • Warming spice

Layers of ripe stone fruit, fresh melon and citrus with subtle hints of warming spice. The palate combines ripe fruit, lees complexity and hints of lightly-toasted oak with a clean, elegant finish. Enjoy now, or cellar up to 3 years.

Winemakers were incredibly lucky to be able to continue to create these wines during the global pandemic crisis. For this reason, 2020 wines carry some very unique memories. The 2020 Hawke’s Bay growing season started earlier than usual, and was relativity dry except for light Spring rains. Disease pressure was low and temperatures were slightly cooler than usual, maintaining beautifully clean fruit with natural balance and concentration.

The fruit was picked at ideal ripeness and gently pressed. The juice was settled and racked off solids then fermented with a range of vessels, temperatures and yeast strains to give complexity of aroma and mouth feel. After secondary fermentation, careful aging and light oak, the batches were racked, blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

Food Pairing: Enjoy with roast chicken, raw or lightly cooked shellfish, and creamy pasta dishes. Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and a gluten free diet.
