Best enjoyed while young.
Great with seafood or fish meals. Try with fresh oysters!
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues
A floral note of sweet pea develops to ripe pineapple and a touch of spice on the nose.
Rock melon and gooseberry fruits on the palate are complimented by a pleasing fleshy texture and nicely integrated soft acidity. Good weight and length.
Production Notes: A minimal approach to winemaking was taken with these single vineyard wines. At harvest, parcels of fruit were carefully selected from the Wakefield Downs Vineyard in the Awatere Valley. The fruit was quickly crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain aromatics particular to this unique site. The individual parcels were assessed, blended and lightly fined before bottling.
