Lifted fragrances of citrus blossom, lime zest and apple.
Flavours of green apple and lime with an underlying minerality. The palate is fresh and crisp with a hint of sweetness on the finish.
Perfect for drinking now and will continue to reward over the next three to five years.
Each parcel was fermented separately at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks in order to retain the varietal characters and freshness. After fermentation the parcels were assessed for quality, carefully blended then balanced, stabilised and prepared for bottling.
The grapes were harvested from select vineyard sites within Marlborough’s Awatere and upper Wairau Valleys at the peak of flavour development in the cool of the evening.
