Stewart Maclennan And Hamish Clark

Pale gold.

Aroma:
Fresh white pear, orange blossom, and a delicate spice note.

Pure and elegant with textural layers of spice and poached pear, finishing clean and dry.

Ageing potential:
Drinking well now, this wine will increase in opulence and complexity over at least the next three years.

Winemaking and Viticulture:
The fruit was sourced from a selection of vineyards in Marlborough’s Omaka and Waihopai Valleys and harvested at optimum flavour ripeness. The free-run juice was drained from the press and cold settled before a cool fermentation in stainless steel to retain the varietal aromas. A small portion was fermented in old oak to add complexity and texture. The parcels of wine were selected by the winemakers and blended, then stabilized and carefully
prepared for bottling.
