The fruit for this wine is sourced from selected vineyards between Marlborough’s Awatere and Wairau Valleys. A core blend of two diverse vineyards harvested with elements of whole bunch berries for enhanced aromatics. Matured in French oak and undergoing malolactic fermentation for a silky texture.
Palate & Aroma: Purfumed dark forest berries with sandalwood and cedar notes. Fresh and bright palate with bold red plums and a lasting finish of dried sage and subtle warm oak.
