Made in a dry style, this wine captivates with distinctive floral, lime and mandarin aromas
The palate is crisp and intensely lime flavoured. The wine is delicately restrained with structure and a hint of sweetness balanced by a firm, chalky acidity. Excellent drinking now, but will reward with additional complexity from patient cellaring for several years to come.
Picking commenced early morning to protect flavour development and then lightly pressed after transferring the grapes to the winery. The free-run juice was allowed to briefly settle prior to fermentation at cool temperatures with a carefully curated yeast strain designed to enhance aromatics. The must was tasted daily and the fermentation stopped when the residual sugar perfectly balanced the natural acidity. The wine remained on lees for several months to create texture, then was racked, lightly fined, stabilized and filtered to bottle. A vibrant and fruit-driven wine was the result of a smaller than predicted crop for the 2017 Vintage. Marlborough experienced a windy summer requiring early season watering to maintain canopy health. As summer progressed, the temperature cooled and inclement weather helped reduce yield naturally, which helped ensure optimal flavor and ripening potential. Viticultural expertise and perfect picking decisions rose to meet the challenge of heavy rainfall on several occasions during the season. As a result of the moderate flowering, we had evenly mature bunches with good berry numbers, yielding around 12 tonnes hectare. The complex growing season and well managed yields allowed for intense berry development and the ability to pick with flavour and a balanced acidity.
