Palate

The palate is generous and full, with classic Marlborough zippy acidity, lemon rind, capsicum and cut grass, complemented by mineral undertones, all combining to give a refreshing and lively finish.

Background

The name was chosen because the majority of New Zealand vineyards are planted in old riverbeds. Gimblett Gravels in the Hawkes Bay is a prime example (although, alas, there's no Gimblett Gravels fruit in The Rocks), and Marlborough is a large, flat river valley with silt and gravel that cause wine-grapes to force all their intense flavour into a handful of bunches of grapes. Light-textured, stony soil drains freely so the vine roots don't become waterlogged (which impacts on the grape's flavour). In fact, the different soil patterns within a single vineyard can lead to huge variations in quality and style making vineyard management more challenging, but often producing outstanding flavours. Stones also retain the sun's heat. They warm up during the day and release their warmth during the cooler Kiwi nights, coddling the vines like a hot water bottle. In our more southern vineyards this has almost the same effect as a glasshouse - but it's far cheaper than building one.
