An elegant soft rounded wine.

100% grown in the famous Wairau Valley of Marlborough, where vines grow in ancient riverbed stones and gravels, producing only a handful of deeply coloured, intensely flavoured grapes with soft tannins.

Pairs well with dishes with a touch of spice such as sticky grilled quail or char siu pork.

Description

An elegant soft rounded wine with aromas of strawberries, red cherries and a touch of oak. Red fruits coming through on the palate, delicate spice, clove and nutmeg with nice savoury oak, lingering moreish finish.

100% grown in the famous Wairau Valley of Marlborough. Here, in ancient riverbed stones and gravels the vines struggle to survive, producing only a handful of deeply coloured, intensely flavoured grapes with soft tannins. Vintage 2016 in Marlborough proved both kindly and abundant for the grape grower. Ideal growing
conditions throughout the summer were followed by a dry, sunny and temperate Autumn, through to an early April harvest. This was indeed fortunate, as Marlborough, some what surprisingly, experience a very abundant vintage. What surprised us was that final crop weights (ton/Ha) were up not because of excess of berries per bunch; but rateher the final size, each berry grew too! The ideal Autumn conditions allowed for a leisurely harvest, determined by the flavour development of each variety in our different vineyards.
