The grapes for this fine wine were grown predominantly in our Meeanee vineyard located slightly inland from the coast in the celebrated wine region of Hawkes Bay. The weather over the growing season was excellent, with a steady warm summer allowing the fruit to ripen perfectly for harvesting at the end of March, upon reaching optimum flavour profile.
The juice was fermented to wine in stainless steel vats, then put to maturation for nine months, with a small portion treated to French oak seasoning. The final wine was then composed on the 18th of January 2019, followed by fining and filtering before being bottled under screwcap on the 14th of March 2019.
This intensely aromatic wine showcases aromas and flavours of peach, lemon and honeydew melon, supported by subtle toasty oak. Medium-bodied and silky smooth, this delightful wine is enjoyable on its own or to pair beautifully with your favourite chicken, salmon or risotto dish.
