Production

Fruit was harvested when ripe from estate and grower vineyards, Sound of White in the Waihopai Valley (35%), VB Premium (Southern Valley) (22%), Linford (Central Wairau) (15%), Allen (Central Wairau) (9%), Murphy (Lower Wairau) (8%), Nesbit (Wairau) (5%), Bond (Central Wairau) (3%), Kennedy (Lower Wairau) (3%). After pressing the juice was fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel (97%) and a small (3%) portion in large oak cuvee. The juices from each vineyard are kept as separate as possible until blending. Post-ferment the wines were left on yeast lees for a touch of added texture before blending and bottling in July 2021.

Tasting notes

On the nose there is a powerful explosion of guava and an aromatic mix of varietal herbal notes complemented with tropical fruits, citrus and stonefruits and a precise minerality. The palate is elegantly proportioned with lovely soft acid carrying the fruit flavours to a very long, mouthwatering finish.

Food match

Terrific with fresh seafood, summer salads and grilled vegetables.
