Winery Tasting Notes
Bright and vibrant pale green
Ripe melon and passionfruit aromas are supported by grassy undertones
A refreshing palate of excellent intensity and balance. The rounded mid palate finishes with crispness, zest and a touch of minerality.
Drinking beautifully now.
The cooler early spring weather conditions resulted in many vineyards being delayed in development. However, from November to March the conditions changed and warmer than average temperature patterns salvaged a very slow and cool start to the season. In classic Marlborough fashion, the warmer summer day temperatures were contrasted by some brisk, cool nights, setting the season up for an outstanding vintage.
