Superbly ripe and instantly appealing, the bouquet shows tropical fruit, yellow peach, mandarin and mixed spice. Beautifully weighted, with a lingering sumptuous finish.

Reviews:'Golden hues and dark straw colours lead to a bouquet of red pear, red apple and lightly poached fruits; mild spice layer and lightly oily texture hits the nose. On the palate - generous textures of acidity mixed with a light oily note then flavours of red pears and apple fruit, some quince and spice moments; fairly lengthy finish, balanced and well made. 89 Points.' - Cameron Douglas MS

Tasting Notes

Aroma Aromas of rose petal and melon with flinty notes.
Palate A satisfyingly complex palate showing flavours of tropical fruits and toffee notes with a long, rounded finish.
Food Match Drinks well with a richly flavoured fish, such as salmon, linguine with cream or roasted chicken.
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 These grapes were gently crushed to the press to get the best juice without any bitterness from the skins. The clear juice was racked to barrel for fermentation. We let the 'wild' yeasts from the vineyard conduct the fermentation. The wine was left on gross yeast lees in barrel for 11 months before being prepared for bottling.
