Gold Medal – Marlborough Wine Show 2023
Winery notes (2023 Vintage)
"Sourced entirely from vineyards located in Southern Marlborough’s spectacular Awatere Valley, this vibrant wine displays aromas of tropical passionfruit, citrus zest and underlying notes of freshly crushed herbs. The palate is layered with flavours of sweet pineapple, crunchy green apple, and juicy lime and grapefruit. With outstanding fruit concentration balanced with zesty underlying minerality, this lively, fresh wine leads to a pure, and focused dry finish.
Grapes from this wine are sourced from two distinct sites located in the cool, dry, and windy Awatere Valley sub-region of Marlborough. The majority of the fruit comes from a vineyard located on the ancient river terraces of the upper Awatere Valley, with a smaller portion sourced from the alluvial, free-draining soils of the lower Awatere Valley."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Obit, November 2023 (2023 Vintage)
"Intense and aromatic, the fragrant bouquet shows green rockmelon, feijoa and lime peel aromas, leading to a wonderfully flavoursome palate offering terrific fruit purity combined with bright acidity, making it delicious and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2027."
