"Classic, pungent, fruity and loaded with aromas of minerality, river stones, herbs and flowers. Flavours on the palate include mango and apple, passionfruit and lemon pith. Refreshing with plenty of acidity carrying the flavour of herb and mineral. A lovely wine, ready to drink from today and through 2023+."

"Still extremely youthful, this partly (5%) barrelfermented wine is full-bodied with punchy, yet delicate, passionfruit, lime and green-capsicum fl avours that build to a long, very harmonious finish."
Pronounced passionfruit together with fresh herbs, fruit salad and floral aromas lead to an intense, fruit-driven palate with a chalky minerality and good concentration. This wine is from the outstanding 2020 vintage and rates highly on the drinkability scale! Vineyards and viticulture
From a spread of vineyards encompassing the Southern Valleys, Rapaura, Spring Creek and the Awatere subregions, these blocks are cropped at moderate levels to achieve the perfect balance of ripeness, flavour and acidity. Each was harvested and fermented separately, each bringing their own unique character to the blend.
