Vineyards and Winemaking
The climate in Marlborough has high sunshine hours, but temperatures during the growing season are regulated by the cooling ocean influence. The 2016 growing season will be remembered for one that tested our patience. A cooler than average spring led to an elongated season, with the majority of the grapes harvested in April. This dry cool autumn weather concentrated flavours yet retained natural acidities.
Aromatic, mouth-filling and dry. Fruit-driven, with a touch of complexity from a small percentage of barrel fermentation and strong, ripely herbaceous flavours, crisp and refreshing.Winestate Magazine
