From some of the oldest plantings in Marlborough. These well established vines, situated on free draining silty clay loams, are vinified alongside fruit from closely planted hillside vines with a clay loam influence. The majority of the crop is hand picked and loaded directly into presses. Juices are inoculated with pure and indigenous yeast strains, all batches are fermented in French oak barrels, a proportion of which were new, most of the wine completes malolactic. Components are assembled after eighteen months maturation, the assembled wine is treated to a further term on yeast lees, followed by a light fining for clarification before the final bottling.
Straw gold hues. Ripe citrus aromas, minerality, hints of roasted nuts and toast, savouryness from extended contact on yeast lees. Seamlessly integrated oak leads into a wonderfully balanced, richly full bodied palate of ripe citrus flavours, nuts and fig over a chalky textural yeast complexity, a stylish wine with balance and length. The textural palate resolves on a slaty, mineral edge.
