Fruit sourced from a sustainably farmed, grower vineyard in the Ben Morven sub-region of Marlborough. Hand harvested into small bins, the fruit was carefully sorted on arrival at the winery. A small portion (10%) of whole bunches went into the tank with the balance destemmed and the must spent twelve days on skins. The fermentation was with indigenous yeast in two-three year old French oak barrels. The wine was racked to tank post-malo in December 2018 and allowed to settle prior to bottling, unfined and unfiltered, with minimal sulphur, in February 2019.

Lovely light ‘Pinot’ colour. There are generous aromatics of red fruits and attractive florals. Also a hint of something earthy. Not at all boring! The palate is succulent, juicy and bright with vibrant red fruits, a whiff of smoke and a smack of sappiness adding interest and depth. A delicious first release under this label.
