This wine is a delicate rose pink hue, and greets with aromas of red berries and orchard fruits. The palate is fresh and vibrant, with juicy red apple, conference pear, and ripe nectarine notes. The wine is light-bodied with a fresh, fruity finish and a touch of spice.
The fruit for this wine was picked from selected Marlborough blocks a little earlier than usual. Our Viticultural team pruned these vines especially to encourage early flavour ripeness, at lower sugar levels. The fruit was gently bag pressed and the clear juice fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. A small amount of Marlborough Pinot Noir was added to enhance colour and red fruit notes. No oak was used in the winemaking, so as to emphasise fruit purity. The wine was filtered before bottling.
