Quick Overview

Clean, citrusy and straightforward on the nose. Palate is limey and shows apple and ripe white peach with some melon rind but also some kerosiney development.



Marlborough experienced a cool start to the growing season which allowed lighter crops to develop. A dry hot February allowed concentrated flavour development in the berries. A long summer extended the ripening period without disease pressure resulting in top-quality fruit with enhanced flavour profiles.

Select parcels of fruit were sourced from a single vineyard site in Renwick, Marlborough. The terroir in Marlborough is ideal for growing Gewürztraminer, the vineyard in the Omaka sub-region of Wairau playing an important part with its river silt soils allowing free-draining of water while layers of limestone ensure minerality.

The juice was fermented using a number of selected yeast strains and at a range of temperatures, to enable us to capture a spectrum of flavour and aroma profiles. The ferments were stopped to retain natural sweetness, and then matured on its yeast lees before blending the different tanks together to achieve a wine of balanced palette weight, character and interest.

Lifted lime blossom, green tea and mandarin zest on the nose lead to a succulent palate of ripe citrus and lime with a refreshing crisp acidity.

Serve slightly chilled, superb with any light lunch dish or a seafood influence.
