Fruit for this wine was sourced from the Awatere and Wairau valleys where typical warm days and cool nights provide classic flavours, intensity and definition. Vineyard selection for this wine was based on the potential of each site to produce wines which show tropical fruit flavours and generosity.
The fruit was gently pressed and the juice cool fermented to retain as much flavour and aroma as possible. Lees aging of some components prior to bottling has developed mid-palate weight adding to the wine’s intense fruit characters.

Whilst drinking beautifully when fresh and young this wine will continue to develop for 2-3 years from vintage.
