More Info

Fruit hand harvested from our Rapuara Vineyard, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks after gentle pressing. We have used the best strains of yeast most suited to the distinctive aromatics of Marlborough Sauvignon. Lees aging prior to bottling has developed mid-palate weight adding to the wine’s intense fruit characters.

Wine Orbit, Sept/2017

2017 -

"Made from hand-harvested fruit grown on the Rapaura Vineyard, this is a delectable sauvignon filled with lush fruit flavours. The inviting bouquet shows grapefruit, passionfruit, mango and lime zest characters with a hint of musky complexity. The palate is powerful and concentrated, and delivers loads of tasty fruit flavours backed by refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2020."
