This wine was produced from a site that was originally a swamp. Now a vineyard, this site is close to the coastline of Cloudy Bay and has a cooler climate than other areas in Marlborough which results in a longer growing season.
– a ‘vinous smoothie’
Bright pale straw colour with water like hue. Superb nose of ripe passionfruit, ripe gooseberry and tropical fruit, delivering an impressive lift and showing strong varietal character. The palate reflects the nose with a seamless flavour profile of ripe passionfruit and ripe gooseberry – a ‘vinous smoothie’. Excellent length and depth, perfect balance. There is a hint of citrus in the background. Strong and long ripe passionfruit aftertaste.
