The majority of the fruit for this wine is from our own Waihopai Valley vineyard. It was cropped at low levels to achieve concentrated flavours and a rich, weighty texture. 10% of the juice was fermented with wild yeast in aged French oak. Aromas include freshly sliced nashi pear, lemon curd and almond meal whilst the palate which is just off-dry, add ripe, juicy stonefruit characters.

Cellaring

Enjoy whilst young or cellar for two to four years.

Food Match

Perfect with rich cheeses, roast pork with a pear sauce, creamy pastas, poultry and seafoods.
