Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 vintage is our second release and we were fortunate to get some of that fabulous Nelson sunshine during the vintage so we're super excited about the wine!
Our winemaking philosophy is simple. Hand-picked fruit from the clay soils of the Nelson foothills is gently pressed to French oak cuves. Fermentation starts and finishes of it's own accord, the wine spends around a year on lees, typically completing malo-lactic fermentation when the warmer weather returns in spring."
Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, August 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Complex, flinty, fresh wood spice and ripe white orchard fruits laced with grapefruit, lees residue scents and a vibrant youthful, lactic new yoghurt appeal. On the palate – delicious, fresh, highly textured and dry. Flavours of citrus then tree fruit followed by white stone fruit. A grapefruit flesh and pith attribute is strong leads the core flavour and into a lengthy finish. Youthful and quite delicious, a lengthy finish. Well made. Great drinking from January 2021 through 2025."
