Each individual vineyard parcel is harvested at optimal ripeness. Some blocks are picked early to retain higher acid and fresh citrus characters, others are left to ripen fully. Fruit is gently pressed, cold settled and racked for inoculation. A variety of yeasts are added, some are selected to accentuate the aromatics of fruit, others add mouthfeel and texture. Some components remain on yeast lees and are stirred post fermentation, which adds a further textural element to the wine. A portion is fermented in French oak puncheons, while being treated to heavy lees stirring, developing complexity and a subtle undertone of savouriness.
Pale lemon colour. Subtle floral notes mingle elegantly with citrus zest, creamy lemon curd and fresh asian herbs. A textural long palate, bright tropical and citrus notes with a fine minerality and long balanced acidity which carries the flavours right to the end of the palate. A soft mouthfeel, good length and a clean finish. Creamy and harmonious, an awesome Marlborough wine.
