This wine has a silky texture that glides across the palate. There is concentration and complexity in this wine that will reward cellaring.

Cashew, rock melon, satsuma and toasty oak flavours. Balanced acidity with a lingering finish.


Alluvial silts over gravels. Fairhall Vineyard, Marlborough.

A low yielding site with good management allowed the grapes to ripen and be harvested before the rain arrived. Grapes were gently pressed off the skins to avoid phenolic pick-up, and the press fraction was separated. The juice was settled overnight, then racked to a mix of new and used French Oak barriques with some solids. The wine was fermented and matured in the barriques, with lees stirring and 40% of the barrels completed malolactic fermentation. The wines matured on gross lees for nine months before being blended and prepared for bottling.
