"The grapes for this wine come from a single vineyard in the Awatere Valley, one of the sub-regions in Marlborough that while famous for its Sauvignon Blancs, produces other aromatic whites as well. The vineyard sits in a cool site that is influenced by steep hills in both directions at an elevation of 656 feet above sea level. This allows a slow ripening season that helps to retain fresh acidity along with bright fruit character. 25% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation with the rest remaing on the lees and stirred regularly to add complexity and mouthfeel. Aromas of peach, apple and citrus peel emerge from the bouquet, followed on the palate with a creamy texture accented by fine minerality and flint leading to a long finish."
