A classic Wairau style showcasing the ripe fruit characters found in the Valley. The nose overflows with pungent passionfruit, grapefruit and ripe gooseberry characters. The palate is powerful with an explosive array of ripe gooseberry and tropical flavours complemented by crisp acidity and a long finish.

Winery Tasting Notes
A benchmark Wairau Valley style showcasing the ripe fruit characters found in this sub region. The nose exhibits intense and powerful aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit, black currant and underlying gooseberry tones.
The palate is concentrated with an explosive array of ripe gooseberry and tropical flavours, naturally complemented by a fine thread of acidity and a long finish.
Enjoy now and will be at its best over the next 18-24 months.
