InformationTASTING NOTES Grown in a unique micro climate, this wine has a rich expression of tropical fruits balanced by natural acidity. The underlying clay soils come through with excellent minerality, hints of wet stone and satin texture. GROWING SEASON AND HARVEST Vintage 2019 in Marlborough resulted with smaller than expected yield across the entire region but at the same time it has produced fruit of exceptional quality and flavour concentration. Winter was warm and spring had great conditions for bud burst and canopy establishment. First half of the summer brought above average rainfall combined with below average sunshine hours so flowering and fruit set was slightly below earlier predictions. However, the second half of summer brought a dry and hot ripening season that allowed the fruit to ripen and reach those desired intense levels of fruit concentration. WINEMAKING The grapes were machine harvested and field destemmed before being gently pressed to stainless steel holding tanks for fermentation at cool temperatures with selected yeast strains with aim to preserve the aromatic and fruit flavours from the vineyard. FOOD MATCHING Fish and seafood are a great choice to match. Delicate flavours of these dishes will complement the bright varietal characters of this wine. CELLARING POTENTIAL Recommendation is to drink this wine within 2-3 years of vintage date so that it can be enjoyed at the peak of its freshness and vibrancy.
