Vineyards and Winemaking

The fruit for this wine is sourced from vineyards in both the Wairau and Awatere Valleys of Marlborough. Fruit is harvested in cool night-time temperatures to enhance aromatics, then fermented with aromatic and textural yeast strains. The wine matures on its yeast lees for a closely monitored period of time to develop a complex creamy texture, before blending, finishing and bottling whilst still youthful to enhance freshness

Soils And Viticulture

The Marlborough growing season started off well with very little frost pressure during spring. Flowering went without a glitch, due healthy soil moisture levels the canopies looked lush and vibrant. The start of 2022 summer was slightly colder; February was below the long-term average in temperature however the weather settled with a slightly damp autumn.

Highly fragrant, this full-bodied, finely textured wine has generous, well-ripened pear and peach flavours and a smooth, slightly sweet, very harmonious finish. Drink now or cellar.
