A single vineyard wine from the heart of the Wairau Valley and a very special site. 2016 saw lovely harvest conditions through late Autumn and the vine age here helps deliver weight and concentration.

Nose

Modern, interesting and fresh - white peach and mandarin with lightly smoked oak and flinty lees notes. Lots going on

Palate

Linear, focussed entry followed by a very attractive slippery note and gorgeous texture from extended lees aging. Beautifully integrated oakfruit work towards a long, flavourful finish that lingers on.

Background

All oak-fermented and matured, the three different parcels spent time on lees bringing various elements of fruit, weight, complexity and texture. Just under half of the blend went through MLF to give weight and creaminess.
