An assemblage of elite parcels from Gisborne's most prestigious vineyards. Katoa and McDiarmid Hill are western edged sites on gently north facing hillside slopes. Blessed with auspicious aspects and ample sunshine, drying breezes and cooler temperatures. A choice harvest from the propitious Ledger Block in the middle of Patutahi, contributes the richness of fully ripened fruit. The luxury of oak barrel ferments infuses opulent smokey, grilled nut characters, creamyness and serious palate weight, an extended finish of exquisite French cake house complexities.
