Five Stars & 93 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Splendidly styled and expressed with ripe apple, apricot, subtle spice and rich floral aromas, it's succulent and fleshy in the mouth offering excellent fruit intensity backed by bright acidity, finishing lingering and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2027."


A single vineyard wine from the Two Terraces Vineyard situated inland at Mangatahi. The Chenin Blanc plantings are located on the lower of the two gravel river terraces formed by the Ngaruroro River. Classic Chenin Blanc notes of baked apple, citrus and honey. It is dry in style with a full and rich palate, enhanced by long term ageing on yeast lees. It is delicious as a young wine but will gain complexity with time in the bottle and will make the perfect accompaniment to seafood dishes.

Fermented in Tank and 500/600 litre french oak. Maturation for 10 months on fermentation lees.

Amazing value! A New Zealand Chenin Blanc to try!
