Bottle/Case

Bouquet

Roast nuts, citrus, and melon, with a distinctive banana passion-fruit aroma that is typical of this wine.

Palate

Crisp acidity is a feature, and even after full malolactic fermentation it retains a fresh, mineral acid structure. Layers of citrus fruit and dried herb flavours unfold and are supported by the smoky, creamy influences of oak maturation.

Winemaking

The blocks were handpicked and pressed to tank for several hours before draining to barrels. All fermentation occurred in oak vessels between 1200L and 225L capacity, and took place over 9 - 11 months. After blending to tank, the wine remained on full lees for several months prior to bottling in the winter of 2017.

Vintage

Johnson Vineyard River and E Blocks, Waihopai Valley – stony alluvial silt loam, very free draining.

Food Pairing

Pairs perfectly with seafood and salads and tomato, lemon and vinaigrette dressings.

Alcohol

13.5%
