Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Fruit was predominantly sourced from the valley between twin peaks in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys sub-region. Grown on clay based soils, the vines are Mendoza and Burgundian Clone 95. The vines were monitored carefully during ripening and fruit was harvested at maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness.

The fruit was partially handpicked and whole bunch pressed to ensure the vineyard characters and fruit flavours were preserved. The juice was barrel fermented in 100 per cent French oak (50 percent new oak barrels, 25 per cent second fill and 25 per cent third fill) using selected yeast strains. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation, followed by 10 months aging on yeast lees, with regular stirring. Only the best barrels were selected for the Twin Hills Pioneer Block wine.

Aromas of Fresh peach, ripe pink grapefruit, vanilla, dried fig and aromatic spice. The palate is elegant and complex with stonefruit, a hint of orange, toasted hazelnut and a toffee note. Ten months maturation on lees in French oak barrels has created a rich creaminess and fine tannin structure."
