Tasting Notes

Harvested from our Eyrie vineyard in the Waihopai Valley.  A blend built primarily of clone 777, hand plunged daily before maturing in seasoned French oak barriques for eight months and undergoing malolactic conversion for a silky finish.

Palate & Aroma: Delivering a bouquet of red cherry aromas, bended with spices and dried thyme.  Juicy ripe red currants and cherry flavours with hints of raspberry leaf, a round mid-palate with silky tannins and a long finish.










Harvested: Between 7th – 28th April 2018
Bottled: March 2019
Winemaker: Chloe Gabrielsen
Brix at harvest: Average 23.1
