More info

The fruit for this wine is predominantly sourced from selected vineyards in the flood plains of Marlborough’s lower Wairau Valley. The eastern flood plain soils are nutrient rich silty loam, renowned for delivering fruit forward notes. In order to capture the maximum expression of regional characteristics, the pruning, irrigation and canopy management is dictated by each variety and by each unique block of land.

The grapes were immediately pressed to minimise skin contact followed by cool fermentation in with selected yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, in order to capture the desired level of fruity aromatics. A small proportion was aged in seasoned French oak adding complexity to the wine. This wine was blended to be approachable in its youth.
