This wine continues to amaze us with its mix of power and elegance. Upfront nettles, a touch of minerality combine with blackcurrants and passion fruit notes with a subtle salt character on the palate. The finish is long and tireless.
Exceptional parcels of fruit were sourced from our Longbend, Home Block, Riverlore and Rapaura vineyards. The grapes were harvested in the cool hours of the morning and left on skins for six hours before gentle pressing. The juice was fermented with cultured yeast in stainless steel vats at low temperatures, following fermentation the wine was left on light lees for two months before being finished for bottle.
