Crowded House is all about taking a fresh new look at the established New Zealand style. Marlborough's vineyards yield wines with good length and a smorgasbord of fruit characters. The vines are picked batch by batch, to their own individual timetable. Early picking delivers fruit with higher acidity and wonderful citrus characters. Voluptuous, richly developed expressions are typical of riper, later picked grapes. Crowded House is well rehearsed at taking full advantage of the unique opportunitities presented each season. Parcels are individually vinified, inoculated with a variety of yeasts, held on sedimentery lees for two months to add richness and assembled unoaked into a vibrant, fruit forward styling.
Pale lemon straw colour. A bouquet of tropical ripe passionfruit, pineapple and mango with a hint of lemon.

This approachable and balanced wine finishes with a lovely clean zestiness.
