The grapes for this wine were grown in the Awatere Valley of Marlborough. Close attention was paid to vine health and even fruit development as well as crop loading and fruit exposure to optimise fruit flavour. The grapes were hand harvested in the morning to ensure clean cool fruit was delivered to the winery
This wine exhibits intense perfumed aromas of fresh ripe pear with hints of gentle spice. It has a textural palate showing baked apple, almond and cinnamon characters, followed by a balanced drying acidity creating a lengthy and harmonious finish
Pair with lightly spiced Asian cuisine or a fresh summer salad with diced crab meat.
