Wine Description

(From 2015 Vintage) The fruit was machine harvested in cool evening conditions and pressed immediately, with minimal skin contact. After settling, the clear juice was fermented at very low temperatures with selected yeast strains to preserve the inherent varietal flavours. The wine was fermented entirely in stainless steel.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Pale Sraw, with lemon-lime tones.Aroma/Bouquet: White currants, gooseberries, some minerally herbal notes and a whiff of honeysuckle.Palate: Full flavoured, fuller bodied wine, with easy drinking appeal and an abundance of currant and gooseberry flavour. The clean acid and mineral texture of Awatere valley fruit harmonises well with the more sumptuous weight of the Wairau components. Suggested Foods: Summer salads, poultry and seafood.
