Bright and crunchy with intensely perfumed aromas of dark cherry and Sichuan pepper. The palate shows blueberry and violet notes interlaced with earthy flavours. This ripe yet elegant wine has great structure and smooth tannins.

Description

Winemakers
Notes

Grapes were hand harvested from high density planted Brookby Road vineyards in the Southern Valleys of Marlborough. The grapes underwent wild fermentation, with
40% whole-bunch for an increased lift in aromatics and structure. The resulting wine was aged in 4,500L French oak cuves for 11 months. In pursuit of the highest quality, we have not fined or filtered this wine. A small amount of sulphur was added just prior to bottling.
