Pure fruit aromas of nectarine and citrus, complemented by delicate floral and savoury notes. Generous on the palate with a delicious dollop of peaches and cream and finely integrated oak.

Beautifully ripe and enticing with golden peach, French vanilla, hazelnut and oatmeal characters on the nose. It's succulent and creamy on the palate, delivering excellent weight and roundness combined with silky texture and juicy acidity, finishing long and delightfully complex. At its best: now to 2025.

Classic Wairau River wines estate expression with aromas of ripe, fleshy yellow stone fruits, vanilla and whipped creamed scents of French oak and malolactic conversion, then red apple and citrus. On the palate - youthful, weighty, creamy fresh and dry. Flavours reflect the bouquet with stone fruits and citrus domination then spice of oak and a light smoky wood flavours. Balanced and well made, youthful and lengthy. Best drinking from day of purchase and through 2025.
