The fruit for this wine is sourced from selected vineyards across Marlborough’s central Wairau Valley and machine harvested in the cool of the night in order to retain fresh fruit character. Pressed off with minimal skin contact before cool fermented in stainless steel from selected yeasts.
Aroma & Palate: Clear pale straw with lifted green lines supported with fresh passionfruit and blackcurrant bud on the nose. The palate delivers ripe citrus zest with gooseberry and passionfruit bordered by green aromatics and a balanced acidity.
