Showing honey and lees, grapefruit and peach tones, this wine is dry and balanced, with developing complexities. A delightful palate of peach and citrus with a hint of honey.

Review: "Fermented using indigenous yeasts then matured in barrels, this complex style offers grape fruit, beeswax, toasted almond and savoury characters with subtle dried herb undertones. The palate is concentrated and finely textured with beautifully pitched acidity, which provides excellent structure and length. A lovely alternative style offering attractive fruit flavours together with seductive complexity. 5 Stars." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 

Tasting Notes

Aroma Lime skin with a gravelly, flinty note and a savoury 'wild ferment' aroma.
Palate Fresh limes with a vibrant flinty, tomato leaf character. This wine has a powerful palate with a dense, juicy structure.
Food Match Match with barbequed fish, vegetable dishes, poultry or lightly spiced curries.
Viticulture Our Ōhau vineyard has stony, fertile soils - ideal for grape-growing! The area is renowned for it long autumns which help ripen the fruit in the vineyard. The grapes in our best blocks were carefully hand-picked to ensure only the finest fruit went into the Selected Vines range.
Winemaking In the winery, the juice was gently pressed and settled before bein gracked with some solids to old oak barrels. We allow these barrels to be fermented by the indigenous yeast that come in on the skins of the grapes. The wine was left on gross yeast lees in barrel for 10 months before being prepared for bottling.
