Description

  • Dry style
  • Ripe pear
  • Ginger spiced apple
  • Lingering finish

"Pristine and elegantly lifted, the bouquet shows white flesh peach, fresh pear and lemon zest aromas, together with a juicy mouthfeel, finishing long and very tasty. It’s fruit expressive and friendly, offering attractive drinking. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2020

Pale straw colour with perfumes of spicy red apple, ripe pear and a hint of ginger. A lively palate with juicy fruit flavours and warming ginger spice. The vibrant acidity lingers, drawing out to a refreshing finish. 

This wine was sourced from selected vineyards from Marlborough and the Waipara Valley, cool climate winegrowing regions in New Zealand's South Island. Their Marlborough vineyards are situated on moderately fertile glacial soils. This includes a mix of sandy loam over very deep gravels; fertile loam and clays. In Waipara, gravelly loams over alluvial subsoil offer minerality and structure. 

Growing conditions in the South Island were perfect, the warm spring ideal for flowering and fruit set. The settled weather continued as the fruit ripened, with above average temperatures ensuring the development of juicy acidity and concentrated fruit flavours. At the time of picking the fruit was in optimal condition - healthy, with great flavour and intensity.

Once harvested, the grapes were gently pressed and settled in tank. The warm fermentation started with a handful of selected yeast strains. To add complexity and texture; a portion of the wine was fermented in old French oak barriques. After the completion of fermentation the wine was left to relax on light yeast lees to enhance structure and mouth feel. The wine was blended and lightly fined in June, then bottled in early July. 

Food Pairing: Roast pork with salty crackling and a rocket, pear and walnut salad.
