Tasting Notes

Selected from the best fruit parcels across a range of vineyards throughout the central Wairau Valley. Fruit was hand harvested and left to soak in the press until the right extraction was made. After settling, the juice was fermented cool in stainless steel tanks to retain its fresh fruit flavour

Palate & Aroma: Perfumed aromas of ripe wild strawberry and spiced coffee. Elegantly structured with echoes of ripe pears and baked apple finishing with notes of mulled spice.


Harvested: Between 7th – 12th April 2016
Bottled: October, 2016
Winemaker: Chloe Gabrielsen
Brix at harvest: Average 21.2
Alcohol: 12%
Residual sugar: 3.9g/L
