Attractively fruited and nicely fragrant, the bouquet shows nectarine, rockmelon, fig and lemon peel characters with a touch of vanilla complexity. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, well supported by creamy texture and refreshing acidity, finishing smooth and lingering.
"A classic match with most white meats, rich seafood dishes, cheese and salads. Also highly enjoyable on its own!”

A warm summer allowed the grapes to ripen perfectly and the cool Marlborough nights harnessed the acidity to give definition to the wine. Harvested in the early hours of the morning to preserve fruit purity. The grapes were slowly and gently pressed. After a cool, long fermentation the wine was aged on fine lees for 6 weeks to allow the natural weight of the wine to develop.
White nectarine, stone fruit and a citrus nuance, balanced acidity and subtle French oak.
Food Pairing: Lightly cooked shellfish like crab and prawns, steamed or grilled fish, chicken pasta or risotto with spring vegetables.
