Reviews

"Light lemon/green, it's a brisk, medium to full-bodied, clearly herbaceous Nelson wine, with some riper, tropical fruit notes, very good depth and a racy, dry (2.7 grams/litre residual sugar) finish." Michael Cooper

“Beautifully fruited and aromatic, the bouquet shows passionfruit, green rockmelon, apple and lemon zest characters. The palate is equally delightful, displaying lovely fruit power and bright acidity, leading to a lengthy mouth-watering finish. Up front and highly enjoyable.“
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2018

Winemaking notes

The fruit for this wine was harvested on 29th March and 5th April. Reductive handling of the juice and early morning harvests while the grapes were cool helped retain maximum fruit flavours. The clear, bright juice was cool fermented 100% in stainless steel with selected yeast strains to promote fruit aromas and flavours. Some post ferment lees contact was allowed to encourage flavour integration and increase mouthfeel and complexity.

The blended wine was gently fined with an organic approved yeast product prior to bottling in September 2018.
