Description

Bouquet: Roast nuts, citrus, and melon, with a distinctive banana passion-fruit
aroma that is typical of this wine.

Palate: Crisp acidity is a feature, and even after full malolactic fermentation it retains
a fresh, mineral acid structure. Layers of citrus fruit and dried herb flavours
unfold and are supported by the smoky, creamy influences of oak maturation.

Winemaking

The blocks were handpicked and pressed to tank for several hours before
draining to barrels. All fermentation occurred in oak vessels between
1200L and 225L capacity, and took place over 9 - 11 months.
After blending to tank, the wine remained on full lees for several
months prior to bottling in the winter of 2017.

Vineyard

Johnson Vineyard River and E Blocks, Waihopai Valley – stony alluvial
silt loam, very free draining.
