The fruit for this wine originates from the Awatere and Wairau valleys in Marlborough. Expert canopy management, including shoot thinning and leaf plucking, has ensured vine health, ideal vineyard flavours and clean, ripe fruit. The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to ensure it arrived at the winery in pristine condition. The 2012 vintage was unique due to a three week extension in the grapes’ ripening period resulting in wines with pronounced aromatics, concentration and flavour.

Winery Tasting Notes
A pure expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, bursting with aromas of passionfruit, kaffir lime and gooseberry.
It is powerful and juicy, displaying vibrant grapefruit notes with fantastic mid-palate weight, and a balanced acidity.
Enjoy now and until 2014.
Fresh pan fried fish or sautéed scallops with grilled seasonal vegetables.
