This light and vibrant wine displays aromas of zesty limes, crisp herbs and fresh snow peas. The juicy palate is balanced and has flavours of passionfruit and grapefruit, with a hint of jalapeño and lemongrass on the finish.
These grapes express ripe flavours with naturally balanced acidity when the grape sugar levels are lower than usual, therefore creating a full flavoured wine with naturally lower alcohol.
A near-perfect growing season led up to 2020 harvest with fruit in pristine condition. The summer was dry with high sunshine hours during the day and the cooler nights that are typical for Marlborough. Yields were at their optimum level and the stable autumn weather allowed us to extend the hangtime of the fruit on the vines to achieve physiological ripeness.
The fruit is gently handled in the winery to ensure bright aromatics, fresh ripe fruit flavours and bottled whilst young and fresh.
