Plush, textural sauvignon with the focus on balanced mouthfeel rather than the typically more vibrant and overtly acidic Marlborough model. Lots of tropical fruits still shine on the palate and the careful use of seasoned oak on a small percentage of the blend adds weight and complexity without denying those fresh Marlborough fruits. Excellent wine.
The winery writes "This wine shows an array of fruit characters, ranging from citrus through to tropical notes. This is complemented by some secondary characters from the natural yeast ferments and some barrel aging. The palate has an elegant structure with a creamy, textural mid-palate and a long finish."
